  1. she has had the quill in her for a few days

    tonight we had a tick feat and got ride of all their ticks. i found what looked like a peice of straw sticking out of her shoulder, my dad pulled it out, and it was a quill
    i think it was like, tuesday when she tangoed with the porcupine. i remember being outside with my RC tank, when my dogs run out behind the house. i hear a sharp yelp and see Nikki running as fast as she could go. porcupine was the first thing that came to minds, but when i saw her running, i just guessed she was chasing s bunny.

    i feel bad now [​IMG]

    Ugh! at least the quill was on the shoulder, when they are inside the mouth and on the tongue--can be very difficult to remove.

    I've even had horses get quills in their nose and front legs...[​IMG]
