Pink Saturday **How my dogs met Pepe Le Pew

Happy Pink Saturday!

I had some big plans for this week's Pink Saturday but some things came up at the last minute and I was unable to even begin my photo journey. At about 10:30 pm Thursday night two of my dogs, aka Big Stinker and Little Stinker, decided to shake hands with a huge male skunk. We have 6 acres of land and I swear that 3/4's of it smells like skunk. I think the dogs chased the poor thing all over our property!

Thank goodness it was a relatively warm night and I could bathe both dogs outside with the hose. PU! I actually hosed them down and washed them twice but this morning the skunk odor was still evident so I bathed them for a third time, and then a fourth time. Then I had to start cleaning up the house. I won't go into detail on my cleaning procedure but my hands are still pruney!

I am dedicating my Pink Saturday to Pepe Le Peu in hopes that if he gets enough attention now maybe he will not feel the need to visit again any time soon!

From Wikipedia: Pepé Le Pew is an Academy Award-winning fictional character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons, first introduced in 1945. A French anthropomorphic skunk that always strolls around in Paris in the springtime, when everyone's thoughts are of "love", Pepé is constantly seeking "l'amour" of his own. Chuck Jones, Pepé's creator, wrote that Pepé was based (loosely) on the personality of his Termite Terrace colleague, writer Tedd Pierce, a self-styled "ladies' man" who reportedly always assumed that his infatuations were requited. Pepé's voice, provided by Mel Blanc, was based on Charles Boyer's Pépé le Moko from Algiers (1938), a remake of the 1937 French film Pépé le Moko.

Penelope Pussycat is best known as the often bewildered love interest of Looney Tunes star-skunk, Pepe Le Pew. Penelope is a typical black and white pussycat, though by some means or another, she often finds herself with a white stripe down her back. She talks very seldom, and has a somewhat shy personality...until she falls in love. When Penelope falls in love, and there is nothing to get in her way, she can be just as aggressively passionate and unstoppable as Pepe. Penelope is always on the lookout for romance, but often that romance comes paired with a disturbingly foul odor.

Today is Pink Saturday's One Year Anniversary so Happy Birthday Pink! Please visit Miss Beverly of How Sweet the Sound and see what the other Pinksters are up to!

And don't forget our Pink Saturday motto:

Get Pink !!!

It's not just a color, it's an attitude.
