Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #28-We’ve Been Skunked Again

I really thought by working less at my day job, I would have plenty of time for comments and blogging, but it seems there is always something that fills the day. The foster puppy got adopted:) I’ve had some evening commitments this week, and our dog, Mo, was skunked the other night. I know I’ve shared my ire for skunks in the past, but really, what other creature is so foul? Is there a purpose in the ecosystem that is fulfilled by skunks?
