We were out hiking with our 4 dogs last night when they all found a porcupine! Our little Boston Terriers escaped with just a few quills each- easily pulled out. However the labs were more inquisitive. Our black lab mix got almost 2 dozen quills in his nose and face (none in the eyes). The yellow lab/ pit was much less fortunate- she tried to bite it
We had to pull at least 4 or 5 dozen out of her mouth, nose, face, chest, and foot. There were a few quills that broke- so she spent the day at the vet. They sedated her and removed the broken quills. All is better now- and thankfully it was not as bad as it could have been (dogs can die if the porcupine swings its tail at them). The worse part was- while we were trying to pull them off and pull the quills out, they were still trying to get the porcupine. The porcupine was in no hurry and just kinda waddled out of the way- real slow.
I don't have a picture of the event- no camera with me- but here are the dogs.
