Yeah, but you should've seen the other guy...
A very determined pitbull (is there any other kind?) has an encounter with a porcupine. Quills fly.
I found these pictures on a bulletin board recently, and sure enough, Snopes already has the background to the story:
Inca apparently did not know when to quit when she encountered the porcupine on Victoria Day, May 23rd . These are the pictures the vet sent before the long (and expensive) procedure to remove the quills. She had thousands of quills, and her tongue was so covered, she could not close her mouth.
It was pretty scary at first. She is doing okay now, but looks like a World War III survivor as they had to cut some out in places, stitched between her toes, and many quills bled on removal.
Here are still quills buried in her, but they should work their way out over time (I pulled four more today). She is on antibiotics and pain meds and thankfully is doing quite well. Maybe she was showing off for her new boyfriend, Rocky, I don't know; but he only got a few in him, which friends were able to remove. Ike, of course, had better sense.
I sure hope that the Queen of Quills has learned her lesson...
