Three weeks after Ron’s dad installed a metal cyclone fence around the back yard someone had left the front gate, near the garage, open. During the night a polecat had found its way into the yard, but apparently did not find its way out of the yard.
The next morning when Ron’s dog was let out of the house, it sensed something strange in the back yard. When he ran to the back yard he apparently thought a cat was in the backyard and went to play with it, scare it, or something.
Anyway he raced up to the fence and by the time he realized it was a real enemy it was too late. He slid to a stop too near the rear of the polecat and you can guess what happened.
Ron and Mom had watched the event from the dining room window. Ron ran to wash his dog. Again Mom poured shampoo and Ron hosed the dog. Even after several washings the dog did still stink…and for days.
