8/1/2005: Porcupined dog
Hobbs Monday Aug 1 10:43 AM
This just makes my face hurt.

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

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.

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...

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.

They never learn. . .
Gee...that sounds so familiar...where have I seen something like that before? <sarcasm>Huummmm....</sarcasm>

somehow this dog just got a bit less ugly

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.

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..."

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

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

"You should've seen the other guy."

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....
