We have a pet skunk and we just adore him. Anyone else here have one? Ours is named Sparky. He is about 7 months now. Neutered male. Yes, he is descented (so many people ask that!). He gets along with my dogs though sometimes he is naughty and nibbles at their toes which makes them yelp and then he knows he is in trouble and runs because he HATES timeout. He is very affectionate with us. Playful and sometimes makes us laugh with his antics.
