      If the cigarette is removed entirely from the mouth, that’s what French sounds like. Honest.

    Never traveled through the woods with a dog?

    It is immaterial how skunks speak or what they say.
    The point is whether they freak out, and where they spray.

      Back when we had a couple of outdoor cats, we’d keep a bowl of kitty chow outside the kitchen door. We live near a good-sized woodsy patch and a wildlife corridor along a railway embankment, so we got various visitors (everybody likes cat chow). One early summer eve we returned from a walk with our pug Albert to find an exceptionally lovely skunk snacking at the bowl in the glow of the entry light. Albert, a confident and sociable dog, advanced curiously on his extendable lead, tail wagging. The skunk, fearless as skunks tend to be, ceased munching and backed up a couple of paces, and then we saw the magnificant tail start to elevate. So we interrupted the little scene and went around by the other door.

        The real problem is one of communication: when a dog sticks its hindquarters up and its forequarters down, it signals playtime… ‘Oh, this animal wants to play!’

    But are they card-carrying members of the Lollipop Guild? Sounds like they should be.

    That must have been a tense minute or so… cyclist had nerves of steel to stand still while those skunks checked him out.
