Thirty one quills

These are porcupine quills




This is where I found them this morning

Poor babies, they were just trying to police the yard.

That's what you get when you live in the woods; sorry guys.


On the brighter side . . . it wasn't a skunk this time.

This is a good time to reveal that I am also a Veterinarian.

Over the years, I have removed fox-tails from Mitten's eyes (our cat),
Bloated ticks from Rusty and Rembrandt,
And an unidentified mole-type growth from Scooter.

Gross, I know.

But it's kinda like changing a poop diaper. . . .
we assist those we love when they are uncomfortable and helpless


. . . . and the real vet would charge $200 to do it.

The operation went smoothly

The boys
are in the Recovery Room (the hall outside my office).

Poor babies!! I just hate seeing animals suffer. They're lucky to have you...(0:

Our poor Dusty just got "fixed"...although he would say that he is now "broken"...and he's been a bit gloomy the past few days because of his stitches...poor guy.

Hey, if you're home, pick up...I'll try to call you around 1pm (my time...I'm not sure if that's 12 or 1 your time).

I love Jen's "broken" comment. So true!

And those are some lucky boys. And don't they know it. They follow your every move and are as close as possible to you at every moment... obviously that being the tile floor outside the office to keep their stink off the office carpet while you blog.

They don't even eat when you're not around! (emotional basket-cases) :)

Aw, poor doggies.

You're such a good mommy to the doggies and your babies :) Their snouts look so painful with those quills
