OK, so my husband, AJ, and I head off to bed about 1:30 last night, but Teak wants to go outside. So AJ sends Teak, Ren and Tie out to do their business. Lights get turned off, dogs come back in, and Teak heads under the covers. But he's being a bit too agitated so AJ pulls back the covers and…
"Hey! He's got porcupine quills in his nose!!"
Teak had 14 quills in his nose, but he was very cooperative and stoic about having them removed. He only squeaked a few times and snarled when the last 2 were pulled. Minimal bloodshed, and he's none the worse for the wear today! I think he's our first Basenji to have actually met a porcupine!
