    This poor puppers...

    Here is a picture of a dog that tangled with a Porcupine.
    She is part pit and Australian Cattle Dog. The vet took the photo's before
    the long surgery to remove them.Her tongue was covered and she couldn't
    open her mouth before he removed them.
    She is doing OK after surgery and is on antibiotics.

    Awww....... That poor dog!
    She must have been feeling so sorry for herself.
    I'm so pleased that she's recovering now.

    Another little-known fact about porcupines: You can actually pet them. There are some that have been raised to be very docile and are used to people. If you stroke them along their back, in the direction the quills lay, you can pet them and not get skewered! I'm not sure why anyone would WANT to, but it is possible!
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    That is hellish. The poor dog. OMG !!!! Porcupine quills generally have to be snipped in half to release the pressure inside the tube of the quill, then the barb contracts and they can be pulled out with less distress to the animal on the receiving end of the quill.
    Oh I find that pic disturbing
