Dog vs. Porcupine

To the winner goes the spoils

Last summer, our Lilly Belle attacked a skunk. It was a horrible and tragic story (for the pack leaders), Lilly seemed oblivious to all the commotion and the "stink" that surrounded our acreage after her victory. You can read the full story here...

Today I received an email from a friend telling of an equally terrible tale of a Pit Bull who made the wrong decision to tangle with a poor little Porcupine; but being brave and stupid, he learned the hard way that you can't always win, no matter how tough you are. The Vet sedated the dog and removed 1347 quills...the dog survived and hopefully learned a lesson.

1. There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity
2. Choose your fights wisely. 3. Don't mess with Porcupines!

Ouch, that smarts!
