It’s thanksgiving here in Canada.
Look who showed up:
In time for dinner? (I'm here all day, folks)
Wild turkeys are pretty cool neighbors.
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...
Well, there was a party pooper.
Henrietta wandered off in July
I'm guessing that's not her...
She had a chick in tow at the time
Maybe the Hill_Billies happened to her
Thanksgiving is maybe my favorite holiday. Love some turkey!
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.
Trust me, better a turkey than a skunk. Got my lab sprayed a few years back...what a F^&ing mess she made coming back in the house and spreading that smell all over the walls and furniture !
Took us over 2 months to get rid of the lingering roadkill smell in the house !
The dog got skunked this summer. You need to have 5 bottles of peroxide on hand
LOL wonder would have happened to a black lab once wash with peroxide... for some reason image of Platinum Blondes comes to mind.
We used a product called deskunk, recommended by our vet. We could mix it in water to wash the walls and furniture as well as shampoo for the dog.
At the end we realised that putting a cap in our laundry loads for a few weeks also help. That smell got stuck in everything...
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....
Went through the same with one of my dogs. She got her nail stuck in the patio screen rail following me while I was closing it. She panicked and pull the entire nail off. Vet recommendation was to soak it in mixture of water and bleach.
I'll take your word on the "sulfur compound" statement, i'm no chemist... but I visited Soufriere in St-Lucia and sulfur smell like bad eggs... skunk to me is closer to the smell of pepper spray when fresh !
I'll bet most folks would prefer the taste of the pigeon over wild turkey.
Happy holiday @Boubou @Guitarmageddon and the rest of you in Canada
going to take a nap now
That bird likes to live on the edge!
Happy (very) Belated Thanksgiving!
