    Dog vs. Porcupine

    Betcha never seen anything like this before. For all you dog owners, show these pictures to your dog !

    This dog had already gotten off lucky once before with only about 40 quills, last year, after attacking a porcupine on the front lawn.

    The dog apparently did not know when to quit when she encountered the latest porcupine. These are the pictures the vet sent before the long (and expensive) procedure to remove the quills.

    She had hundreds of quills, and her tongue was so covered, she could not close her mouth. Somewhere out there, there is now a naked Porcupine.

    Could have run into a skunk after that workout. Poor thing, lets hope she understands and gets the point this time.

    That looks like a bull terrier. Poor doggie. Dumb doggie! I remember my two boxers tangling with a skunk. I never did see the incident, but I sure did smell the aftermath.

    I think that dog will not bother any more porcupines.

    I think the email said it was a pit bull cross, IIRC. I too wonder how the poor dog kept from being blinded. All kinds of things for dogs to get into trouble with. Those of us from Arizona know there is something worse for dogs, and humans, to get into, Chollo (pronounced "choy ya"). The little clusters of spines fall to the ground waiting for someone, or something, to step on, kick or otherwise come in contact with. The face full of porcupine quills would seem like a walk in the park.
