Sage Advice


Hi.  It’s me – Sage.

Here’s my advice for everyone today:





Last night, on our last evening walk, Scout and I encountered a stinky ol’ skunk.  Unfortunately, Scout got sprayed all over by this black and white, hairy, and malodorous monster.  I have heard this happened once before.  Poor Scout.  When Mr. & Mrs. Fifty Shades got us in the house, we all immediately went into the bathroom where Mr. Fifty Shades applied this liberally all over Scout.

Scout endured the indignity like the brave boy that he is.

When we were done with this, we thought the odor was a little better.  But, the fumes from the critter were so pungent that no one could stand to be around Scout…including Scout!

I decided to go out on the porch to get away from it a bit, but Scout wanted to come out, too.  So, we stayed on the porch for a little while.  Around 3:00 a.m. Scout and I decided we needed to bark a little and we got invited inside.  Scout could not stay put.  He paced the floor all through the house in an effort to get away from the odor.  Mr. & Mrs. Fifty Shades figured they were up anyway, so maybe a second dose of the skunk odor remove and a bath would help out the poor miserable boy.  So – we all got together in the bathroom once again.  Scout was mighty patient, I have to say.  After his bath and lots of shaking dry, he settled down, although, we could all still smell that horrible smell.

Today, Scout’s still quite stinky but feeling a little better.  I’m sticking by him while he’s going through a tough time.

When we took our morning walk we rolled in the grass trying to rid ourselves of the smell and then we scooted down the hill on our backs.

Mr. & Mrs. Fifty Shades are doing lots of laundry.  This is the towel triage center on the porch.

Sage Wisdom:  There are worse things than smelling like a dog.

So long for now,

  1. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha, love Sage’s story and love that Sage loves Scout so much that Sage will stick by Scout through Thick and Thin. Life is good when one has such a good friend as Sage plus Mr. and Mrs. Fifty Shades..
