now friends dogs, well that's another story, one buddy's dog got sprayed 3 night in a row trying to catch one once!
not the smartest dog in the world in my eye's or my buddies

on a side note, I have seen some crazy things with skunks, that if I didn;t see i wouldn;t believe
I have had raccoons in my yard and had skunks show up, and seen them coons run over shove there noses under a skunks butt lift its back legs up off the ground and walk it out of my yard as far as I could see
and seen it about 25 times now
talk about either brave or dumb raccoons, but NEVER did a skunk spray, and they were certainly looking into the eye of the danger when they did this

and another skunk story of sorts !

I had a friend that always had a skunk as a pet, he used to have there scent gland removed sop they couldn't; spray
said they make excellent guard dogs
his used to greet everyone that showed up, running at you as fast as it could

and if you didn;t know better, you turn and run away I think LOL
The way I hear it, dogs either learn not to mess with skunks after they get sprayed for the first time, or they never learn. Sounds like your buddy's dog is the latter. As for the raccoon, I guess they weren't causing enough harm to the skunk for it to spray, but that's brave or dumb to shove their nose that close to a skunk's ass. Funny mental image though. I have heard skunks can make good pets. They're cute.
