|Scorpion belt buckles. these are real Scorpions.|
He had to go to the groomer for a bath the next day. He hates that. He knew what was happening and we had to chase him around the yard. Now he is afraid to go outside in the night. I received a little gift from him in the morning in my office area. I have heard that dogs have no memory of what they have done wrong unless it just happened. It is hard to believe this because every time he does this, he acts guilty. I don't even need to say anything to him. He just lowers his head and shakes when he sees that I have been in the room where he has been bad. I don't blame him. I hate skunks too. Once you are skunked, you never forget it.
Then there are the scorpions. My landlord has a woman friend living here. Two nights ago she found a huge scorpion in her bed. Then two mornings later, when I was letting Chico out and it was still a little dark, I saw a strange shaped shadow near my foot. I turned on the light and it was a scorpion. It was alive too.
The day before, my place had been sprayed for bugs. I guess that brought the scorpion out of hiding. I killed him with my shoe. Chico and I had walked right past it and I was barefooted. We were lucky that time. Years ago, Chico was stung by a scorpion in his dog house. He never went into it again. I hope he doesn't decide not to go outside at night anymore because of the skunk. We all have long memories when it comes to painful things......
