Recent dog blogging:
- Dorothy posts a video of Tobi the Maltese performing his whole repertoire of impressive tricks.
- Tim Irvin sent two photos of a pit bull who had a nasty run-in with a porcupine. Very foolhardy!
Yes, apparently these are real photos of a real porcupine encounter. I found the details at Snopes.com, where I learned that this incident happened on Victoria Day weekend of 2005. According to Inca’s owner, her dog simply kept on attacking the porcupine and would not give up!
She had thousands of quills, and her tongue was so covered that she could not close her mouth.These photos were taken by the vet before the quills were removed. Some could not be removed and had to be left to work themselves out over time, while others had to be cut out and the cuts stitched up after removal. Poor doggy!
