True Story:

I had a dog that got quilled by a porcupine eleven times (fifty or sixty quills each time) in one winter in Massachusetts. The vet asked me if I let her out with another dog, and I said yes. He told me start letting her out by herself, which I did, and she never got quilled again.

I pictured her running into a porcupine alone, checking to see if anybody was looking, then slinking off, thinking, "Phew! I don't have to make it look good this time."
