It is that time of year in Chicago – the skunks are coming out, we can smell them! The last two years in a row, our little white dog was skunked in February. I am hoping we avoid the smelly hat trick this year. Have you ever smelled a skunk? They smell like a mixture of rotten eggs, burnt rubber and garlic.
Here is a great video of the chemical compounds in the skunk spray. Here is a video of baby skunks - they are kind of cute when they are small!
