OMG!!! You will never believe what Francesca got us into. It's no secret that we, French Bulldogs, love to chase squirrels. In fact, I love squirrel hunting so much that I really wish I knew how to climb up the trees right after those little critters. Well recently, we went outside for some fun and games when something caught our eyes. I had never seen this black and white creature before as it scurried across a snowy field. Francesca told me that it was an especially fancy squirrel with extra fancy two-tone fir, and you know what a fashion sense she has. So, naturally, we took off after it and it was a pretty easy squirrel to chase because it was kind of slow. And then it hit us like a brick – this thing sprayed us with something really ghastly – YUCK!!!!
It was pretty obvious that we had been skunk hunting because no one wanted to be near us and they were all making funny faces. How were we supposed to know to stay away from skunks? I’ve since learned that they are basically nocturnal and this one was out in the day because it was probably hungry or disoriented. Well, wouldn’t you know, we were banned from the house and then the serious rubber gloves and waterproof apron were put on. Laura, one of the housekeepers and Christine, an assistant, took us into the flower room, where we were bathed in the big, deep sink. It was pretty nasty. Oh, live and learn.
After all that trauma, Christine was so kind to blow us dry. However, the whole experience was a bit much for me. I'll know better next time to stay away from skunks!
