8/1/2005: Porcupined dog



If it's an animal pic, and not Friday, it's not gonna be good. Making the rounds is this bull terrier's encounter with a porcupine.



One hopes the puppy lives and one wonders how it could possibly have gone so wrong.



Hobbs  Monday Aug 1 10:43 AM

This just makes my face hurt.



BigV  Monday Aug 1 10:53 AM

Somewhere, there's a balding porcupine feeling a draft and asking "What the hell is that?!"



Bullitt  Monday Aug 1 10:58 AM

That is a new kind of hurt right there.. Porcupine: 1, Dog: 0



xant  Monday Aug 1 12:06 PM

The porcupine evolved this defense to keep from getting attacked and eaten, right? Looks to me like it didn't work. I suspect rather a lot of dogs would keep attacking that thing no matter how many spines they collected.

Dogs are too dumb for this kind of defense to work, and besides, he'll heal. Sucks to be the porcupine.



lookout123  Monday Aug 1 12:27 PM

seriously. if i try to bite something 238 times and each of those 238 times something sharp and pointy imbeds itself in my flesh - i'm going to quit biting it. well, maybe 240 is the magic number...



capnhowdy  Monday Aug 1 02:53 PM

I'd hate to have this guy's vet bill. I feel sorry for the dog. Any other breed would have probably left it alone after the first encounter, BUT NO.. NOT THE BULL TERRIER.
I just hope he still has eyeballs....stupid mutt......



Emrikol  Monday Aug 1 02:57 PM

They never learn. . .

Gee...that sounds so familiar...where have I seen something like that before? <sarcasm>Huummmm....</sarcasm>

Oh, yeah. Here.
Long time ago too


The older one got off a whole lot better though

I've been lurking here too damned long. I think I remember most of everything that's been on IoTD



barefoot serpent  Monday Aug 1 05:04 PM

somehow this dog just got a bit less ugly



dar512  Monday Aug 1 05:41 PM

I'm guessing that's going to take anasthesia and a lot of time to get all those out. The vet bill is going to be huge.



lookout123  Monday Aug 1 05:44 PM

reminds me of a joke about my exwife...something along the lines of "if she had as many pricks sticking out as she has going in she'd look like a porcupine..."



ferret88  Monday Aug 1 05:44 PM

my dog has a little bull terrier in him and he's a little dense, but i cannot imagine any dog that single-mindedly intent on doing ill to a porcupine

Porqupined Dog

For those interested in removing quills: http//www.thepetcenter.com/gen/pg.html

None of the pictures look anything like the one here. The family dog, a not very smart dalmatian, used to mix with porqupines. My father removed the quills, but it wasn't fun or easy. The dunb - er- not very smart - dog never did learn to leave those particular animals alone.

Somewhere out there is a naked Porcupine. 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. There 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...



tandr  Tuesday Aug 2 02:14 AM

shoot... I am quite nasty-picture-resistant, but this one almost made me puke. Poor (and STUPID) dog. How does it looks now?

Interesting how much did it cost to remove all this shit?



Griff  Tuesday Aug 2 06:46 AM

Hmm... Looks like Merlin is smarter than one other dog anyway. Actually he's bright just a little over-enthusiastic. It only took one porky incident.



Leus  Tuesday Aug 2 09:41 AM

"You should've seen the other guy."



mrnoodle  Tuesday Aug 2 10:44 AM

Now that the quills are removed (and assuming that the dog is still stupid, which is a safe bet), that porcupine could be in a world of hurt....

Dog: "Remember me, porky?"
Porcupine: "Shit." (cue Keystone Kops music, running fx)



lookout123  Tuesday Aug 2 11:01 AM

now that is funny mrn.
