Spanky Jack

Spanky Jack was the best dog I ever had. He really loved to run in the woods and mountains, but he had a little too much fun on this day. I miss him every day. Grangeville, Idaho. April 2004

Did you pull those out yourself? Spanky Jack seems remarkably calm.

Re: yikes

No I took him to a vet who put him under to pull them out. There were 60 some quills in him, some inside his mouth and others up his nostrils. It was worth the $80 to pay the vet and spare the dog the pain and me the trouble of removing them. He was pretty calm, but he was also hurting a bit. He was pretty subdued, which was not his nature and kept looking at me as if to say, "aren't you going to help me here?"

That is not a pleasant sight! I’m surprised that some sort of animal Geneva Convention hasn’t outlawed barbed porcupine quills.

Ouch indeed!

I remember when you first posted this. Your dog looks a lot like my blue heeler mutt.
