    I guess tossing her in the washer for an extra rinse cycle is out?

    By living in Newfoundland, you’ve also missed the joys of de-skunking or de-porcupining the dogs, so the universe is probably still in balance.

    That is true. There were both such critters in New Brunswick, but the dogs were old and wise by then and left them alone.

    The thing about the washing machine method is that she’d have to go in head first. Apparently social services isn’t keen on that sort of thing. Cna’t imagine why not.

    Oh my! I’ll have to file that one away so that if I ever find myself in that predicament, I’ll at least have a reasonable expectation 🙂
