Well, the turkey is back, she hung around our house all day, on the roof in the backyard.
She is all tuckered in for the night in the maple tree in my backyard. Now I don’t mind, I just have to be very careful before I let the 65 lbs dog outside.
The dog got skunked this summer. You need to have 5 bottles of peroxide on hand
I am a chemist, the stinky stuff is a sulfur compound, peroxide and/ or bleach will oxidize the sulfur, killing the smell .
There is a recipe on the web, about a litre of peroxide, small scoop of sodium bicarbonate and dish washing soap.
Before I knew this, I used bleach, at the rate of about a cup in a bucket , which is ok I had a vet make me soak my dogs paw in such a mixture, I had my hand in there rubbing the wound. Just rinse carefully after, avoid the eyes. And no, it will not bleach the color of your dog
Bleach works great to wash stinky stuff, clothes etc....
I'll bet most folks would prefer the taste of the pigeon over wild turkey.We haven't seen any wild turkeys in the yard, but last night I chased a quite large deer out. And the pigeons... Shall I mention the pigeons? The entire pigeon population in town has moved into our back yard. It's like a scene out of The Birds...
