Customer Question

I don't think my 2 doxies (tweenie and standard reds)s have been skunked (they were once before), because they and the house now smells very strongly of "rotten onions" mixed with a "metallic' smell. Could they have eaten a gopher? a small lizard? We have both. Eaten, what do they smell like? About 30 minutes ago my dogs went into the back yard, were barking excitedly, dashed back into the house, the standard repeatedly wiping her jaws on the carpet, and I heard and saw the tweenie chewing ?small bones, and dribbling about 6 inches of white stringy stuff. Both now have a taste in their mouth they're trying to get our. My husband looked all around outside with a bright large flashlight. Found nothing.
I feel tingly (fear?). They are not whining. But they won't sleep together. They smell!!!
