Stinkers The Porcu-Puppeh

Snickers Stinkers the Porkypine acts like a puppeh! “I didn’t think anyone could be as cute as Teddy Bear, but i was wrong! Heck, this could even be Teddy Bear but then all porcupines look alike to me (Sorry TB)!!” -Annie M.

    So that’s it! My Pippen is not a dog…he’s a Porkypine!!!!

    Also, are porcupines as soft in the front as they look?

  2. Please note: Puppeh or not .. ‘mom’ is still wear heavy gloves .. hehe
    (Smart mom!)

  3. One of the cruel jokes of the universe. Porcupines would make loving, affectionate pets except … well …
    “Stinkers, we need to talk.”

    I had to find out more about Stinkers the Porypine here so I did a little Googling and found this: Along with a few other vids of Stinkers in action…

  5. Peek me up! Peek me up! Peek me up!

    The stubby little legs kill me!

  7. I don’t care what you call him, he’s been eating way too many Snickers.

    Try a puffed rice cake sir.

  8. Love his little dance. Twerk-upine!

  9. Stinkers likes belleh rubs *asplode*

  10. Thanks for the link. Stickers, Snickers, Stinkers, a porcupine of many names and wide travels (and both genders, at least according to human guesswork). Apparently he was a wild animal who got too habituated to skiers. Also, he eats corn on the cob and makes noises almost exactly like Teddy, so it’s a species behavior, I guess.

    I’d be interested to know what happened to the back half of his quills, though. In the Colorado photos (before relocation) his coat looks the same all over, but in this video, am I the only one who sees him looking entirely different front half versus back half?

  11. Blue Footed Booby says:

    They’ve clearly clipped the pokiest section of quills to minimize danger to people.

  12. haha! I don’t think a porcupine has ever looked so cute to me! 😀

  13. Great. Now I want a pet porcupine.

  14. I wish porkys were as fuzzy and cuddly as they look.
    I bet Stinkers would have loved cuddling XD

    What an awful place to end the vid.. just as she was about to explain why they thought he was female DX
