That's one tough mutt.
A bulldog is recovering at home in Oklahoma after a run-in with a porcupine left her with a face full of quills.
Three-year-old Bella Mae was rooting around a backyard pond with two other dogs last week when she spooked the spiky critter, her owners, Jerry and Allison Noles, told local News 9.
The porcupine impaled all three dogs, but Bella took the brunt of the attack.

I hurt just looking at that photo.
Glad Bella is much better.
Like our economy.
Oh my!! My dog Otis got it from a porcupine when we were
in Queechee,VT. Had to go under general anesthesia to
have them removed,but nothing like that! WOW!
Thank goodness for the emergency veterinary clinics that
The porcupine must be naked.
500 quills? That’s just the ‘thing’ to write the great American novel.
Methinks Poochie would prefer a word processor.
Poor baby!! The article didn’t mention anything about poor Bella’s sight so it must be okay. Poor poochie looks like a cactus!
I wonder if some of those quills are in Bella’s eyes. There are so many quills I don’t see how the eyes wouldn’t get them, too.
That picture makes me hurt.
There was a vet show a while back I found interesting called “Dr Pol” Guess it wasn’t picked up. I liked it because it showed some of the more interesting vet situations in a farm county.
He said he did this (porcupine) at least once a week. On one episode, he had the SAME dog come back same week, even worse. Dumb dog.
>>Like our economy.<<
You put it so well...I was trying to think of an analogy to our present political situation...and yours is perfect! :)
...or my *lame* one.....how Ryan will look when Hussein’s operatives get done with him. :(
Then don’t look at these...makes me cringe!
We had a Lab who found a porkie by the camp in VT...fortunately there were just a few quills in her snout.
Any porkie we find near the camp [usually found by the side of the road licking a wood post] gets dispatched with a single round to the head....to avoid dog v porkie encounters.
HA Oh I see where you're going with that, and it's not all not bad. I might suggest, though, a slight refinement- weaving in Ryan, a voodoo doll and the sinister witchdoctor into the narrative...and we know who that might be.
As for the Bulldog, every specimen I've known personally would huff and puff and snort at this and go right back at the porcupine the very next chance it got. I bet our hero here is no exception.
I'm shaking my head as I question this, what seems to be, a PC commentary.
This story wants to make a person believe that 3 pooches were just roaming around, minding their own business and the mean old porcupine waylaid them all, instead of these 3 hooligans found this porcupine taking a breather from the heat near some water when this pack jumped him. Now the perpetrators are the victims.
Having said that, I do feel sorry for the little guy but I have a feeling he was the instigator ;)
