That poor dog was roaming in a town near our house. I hope he was belonging to someone and who will be able to have those quills being removed by a vet...

Oh that poor dog! Guess it knows what a porcupine is now! Technically, I find the colors a little flat. Composition is ok. Wish you could see a bit more of it's back legs or less. I hope the dog is ok!

Dog + Porcupine = One Unhappy Dog.

I don't have time to vote on this, sorry, but what a great picture! I wish I could have seen the porcupine! Was he naked?

Alternate title? Know when to give up!

Heh. Dogs are so dumb. Porcupines are neither a threat nor a source of food for a domesticated animal.

07/27/2005 11:08:50 PM
Odd, I got photos of this dog emailed to me the other day with the quills all over it???

So sad. It breaks my heart. But a great picture. I like the light on the dog's forehead and the shallow dof.

I hope this is fake, or atleast - you did not promote this.

Pain.

07/27/2005 12:36:33 PM
Dang... that hurts just looking at it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2005 12:16:19 PM
OMG!!! I'm not certain how to vote for this one. I feel sorry for the dog, but he/she got what it deserved. Unfortunately, most of the dog is in shadows. It's a keeper if you do some photoshop correction to it. (Of course that can't be done in the challenge.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2005 12:08:50 PM
Ouch!! I hope the little fella was ok.

Oh my gosh! I bet he never does that again. Is the dog OK? What about the porcupine? Great capture I don't think I have ever seen a photo describing painfull mistakes!! Love it.

This picture got me staring at it for a very long time (that's good!). The subject is very original (never seen this before). Nice composition, very sharp, details look awsome. I love the leaves in the upper right corner, it adds a lot to what happened before the shot was taken and the bug above his eye just adds one more cool element to look at. A very busy picture but well done. Poor boy tough. The spikes don't look that deep to be painful but the ones on his nose must have hurt a bit.
