stench of vermin on golden retrievers hunting at 11:00 p.m. in the backyard on our mountain. back in the house with an undecipherable, room-filling smell. the possibilities are endless; probably armadillo! city mouse calls country mouse and asks, in a fevered pitch, what to do. three step procedure is suggested: while wearing rubber gloves, pour listerine (in their mouths and hold shut for a few seconds;) pour peroxide on their fur; rinse with apple cider vinegar (my idea.) better . . .but they’re staying outside all day. strongly scented candles burn in the house. hunting season has arrived.
