If on a nice walk in the woods . . .
. . you might run into one of these . . .
. . . and your dog may sprout a quill goatee . . .
. . . and you will need some pliers . . .
No fun for anyone.

No fun. At least most of them don’t do it twice. Hope your dog is ok!
My golden lab has been sprayed 6 times in 2012. I’m starting to think she likes the smell..
This dog, Tess, has a lot of heart. She never missed a beat on the hunt and is fine. Those skunks are terrible but porcupines are worse! Happy New Year!
Been there,done that with my shorthair. Only once so far and hope one porky was enough. He went on hunting after I pulled all the quills out like nothing ever happened.
Those pups are tough critters. Why let a face full of porcupine quills spoil the hunt!
Ouch! We hunt the desert southwest, no porcupines but out here jumping cholla are pretty common. Pliers are a must.
My dog rolled on porcupine carcass earlier this season. She seemed to be enjoying it when I pulled her off it.
Who wouldn’t enjoy that! Yuck – pain and stench. Thanks for visiting!
