Of course, the border collie picks tonight, with heavy snow, winds and 4" of wet snow on the ground to "learn" about skunks.
And also it happens 25 feet from the house. So we will have the aroma for weeks.
I always have two bottles of Skunk-OFF arround, so got her sprayed down and cleaned up quickly. But I of course get contaminated as well. Same for my shoes and clothes.
And equally distasteful ,this means a contract out on the skunk , as well as any family members. Hate to kill things like this but this is the 3rd time it's been way too close to the house. First two times it waddled away and the dog obeyed my commands and left it alone.
Took my sister's dog 3 tries to learn to avoid them. Hope yours is a fast learner.
A Perpetual Disappointment...

We had an Aussie that got hit once. If there was even a whiff of skunk in the air after that she headed home, didn't matter how far out on the property.
Pickin' stones and pullin' teats is a hard way to make a living. But, sure as God's got sandals, it beats fightin' dudes with treasure trails.
We've been tricked, we've been backstabbed, and we've been quite possibly, bamboozled.
I've heard (never tried it, could be fact or fantasy) that tomato juice will get rid of most of the smell.
all your sig are belong to us
Wash with whatever, after two weeks the smell will dissipate.
Skunk-OFF works well...so does a spray that Remington sells. I have both.
Having previously owned Siberians/Malamutes I am always prepared! LOL.
Thankfully not a porcupine incident. Have had a few of those in the past. I'll take stink over a Vet visit, anesthesia and surgical removal.

My farm dogs never did quit the skunk habit. I think they actually enjoyed the aroma.
Never had an incident with all the coon dogs I had in my youth.
I got it one time though and my mom made me strip down buck naked on the front porch.
Tomato juice and I slept in the basement.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

And just wait until that snow melt happens.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.
