I have to admit, I’m seldom startle easily.. but the other morning when I walked into my garden, I heard this odd rustling noise? Then a kind of a gurgling, peeping grunt.  I’m sure I’m not describing this sound accurately, but certain that I’d not heard it recently in my garden!  I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the nesting turtles, but so far none have appeared.  This sound was so unfamiliar to me and then as I was about to enter the comfrey patch he  appeared!  I think he was as startled as I was..but one thing was very clear–I wasn’t about to tackle this fellow all alone!  Many years ago our Jackson went head to head with one of these critters that had decided to take up residency in our back barn.  Not one of Bubba’s  finer investigational moments, but a real learning experience for him and after our emergency visit to the vet, Jackson learned really fast to respect these quilly little guys.  So I backed off.. he  stood there checking me out for a few moments and then hobbled off without uttering another peep.  I hope Quentin, the quilly porcupine  (yeah, I have a habit of naming most critters I come in contact with) doesn’t take this personally, but I’m praying he never comes back!
