Nemesis- 1. Me-0.

The porcupine returned to nibble on my pine trees. And our ferocious dogs did their best to stop it.

Buster took it like a man, as Newt removed the quills from his nose.

Buster just lays there, as Newt pulls the quills from his nose. Buster is the tough, silent type.

Porkchop was last to get quills pulled.

Porky looks sheepish, as he remembers the encounter with the porcupine.

The porcupine struck quills deep in the dogs' noses.  Buster even had them in his mouth.  ouch.

Porky resisted the treatment more than Buster.

Newt grimaces as he puts Porky in a headlock to pull quills.

Notice the concentrated grimace on Newt’s face. That is the same look I have when I’m trying to comb the knots from ReeRee’s hair. (And a similar headlock hold- haha!)

The porcupine probably left with a mouthful of pine bark in his mouth, snickering. Scratch one up to the porcupine. My nemesis= 1. I still have a big fat goose-egg.
