Oh, I should have explained that this photo is not a picture of my boss's dog. A friend of his sent him this photo along with another one.

My boss's dog really did get into a fight with a porcupine this weekend, and she is doing fine now.

I add more info. to the original entry.

Ah, I misunderstood.

I can't imagine seeing one of my dogs in this state.

i can't blame you for misunderstanding. i didn't explain completely.

earlier in an email, i did a much better job of sharing the complete story. should have just lifted the words from that email instead of recomposing the story.

Thanks for the link. I'll have to check it out. Yes, it would be horrific for one's pooch to be in this state. My boss was quite concerned, though he said his dog didn't seem to be in pain. Shock, probably. My boss pulled out each needle himself. He has a gentle dog. Not sure the owner of the pitbull (I think) in the photo could do that. Sedation seems necessary.

I can barely look at that image... the stuff of horror. I'm surprised it didn't loose its sight.

True.

I was sure it would have been put to sleep.

But like my boss said about his own dog, she probably went into shock which helped her to surivive.

btw: nice usericon. you truly have some of the best i've seen. :)
