[PHOTOS] This Dog Had A Very Bad Day, and Learned A Very Painful Lesson

In the bout between a canine and a porcupine, it’s obvious to everyone but the canine who’s going to win. Take for instance Bella Mae, a sweet little bulldog who was only trying to defend her home. While she should definitely be rewarded for her valiant effort, the outcome ended painfully for her.

Upon discovering the mishap, her owners rushed her to the local veterinary hospital where she was immediately admitted and taken to an operating table. In all, the veterinarians removed more than 500 quills from her face, ears, paws and mouth.

Except for some painful lumps and damaged pride, she came through the ordeal without any serious injury.
