This week we learned that the average dog is as intelligent as a two-year-old child. The study was established based on the canine's language development abilities, as both two-year-old children and dogs can learn up to 165 words.

Smarter than a two year old! Cattle and Sheep dogs have the highest intelligence.

Pit bull 0 - Porcupine 1347

This is so painful that I'm not posting a picture:

A pit bull decided to do battle with a Porcupine in the back of his house in Southern California..
But being brave and stupid, he learnt the hard way that he can't always win, no matter how tough you are..

A vet sedated the dog then removed 1,347 quills..
The dog survived, and hopefully learned his lesson..

Big ouchy!!! view at your own risk
