Dogs and Porcupines

Dogs and Porcupines

What a day!! Today my German Shorthaired Pointer and I woke to another foot of fresh powder overnight and hit the trail around 6:30am. She was loving the fresh snow running laps up and down the ranch. Half way through our walk I noticed her trying to get into something on the side of the road. I was able to call her attention and we continued on without any issues.

On the way back to the house Char was off the the side of the trail at the same spot she was getting into trouble earlier, I figured she had a dead animal of some sort. When I grabbed her collar and pulled her back I noticed 2 porcupine quills sticking out of her lower lips. Dogs and Porcupines hardly get along.. I quickly took the quills out much to Chars relief. A friend mentioned if you cut the quills in half it creates an air pocket making them easier to be removed from the skin. I would later find out this method worked when i found 2 more quills hidden under Char’s collar.
