    Porcupines, gotta lovem

    Taking dummy in to the vet this morning. Decided he needed to taste a porcupine. I pulled 200 quills before he decided he was done with me. I'll let the vet finish up.

    Oh man, that’s gotta hurt. You can see it in his eyes.

    That look in his eyes is dont mess with me. I had already pulled 200 + quills and decided it was a job for the vet as the dog had become hostile at that point.

    I've seen more in the last couple months than I have in a long time. Probably seen a dozen road kill in the last couple weeks alone.

    Old bulldog learned his lesson. Found out he is not the baddest thing in the yard. He is fairly smart so I doubt he'll do it again. Just glad my lab pup was in his kennel or he would have been covered in quills. Seeing more and more of these damn porcupines. No predators when you're covered in needles I guess. Used to be a rare sight to see one now you see them all the time. Easy to find around here in the winter because they chew the bark off the trees. If they find one the like they'll chew the bark off from the bottom to the top. I've only seen one on the river in Alfalfa county but the area where I live in the Kingfisher/ Blaine county area those things are taking over.

    They taste really good from what I hear. A lotta folks up north eat them. OKBOB gave me one several years back. Used a lot of the quills in taxidermy stuff as part of the habitat display. Wished I still had a few left.
