My family had an Irish Setter when I was a kid. She was a fun dog with a great disposition...but she was dumb as a dumb gets when it comes to wild animals. Porcupines? Yeah, we pulled MANY a quill from her nose and paws. She is to this day still the only dog I have ever known that got chased and bitten by a possum. Skunks...well they apparently held a special place in her heart. It was like she LIKED being sprayed. She would run up to the hind quarters of a skunk and start sniffing, and then when the skunk propped itself up on it's front two legs she would start running around in circles excitedly as if to say "YAY!! SPRAY ME! SPRAY ME!!" And then the skunk would oblige her. Like 6 times a year or more. The first couple of times we tried to clean her up a bit, after that we just gave up.

Same with my rotty. I don't know how me manged it but it was like he was going out of his way to fucking find them. He's dissapear, then show up a while later whimpering and reeking of skunk spray and I'd be all like "Berkely, you motherfucker!" and drag him into the backyard for tomato baths and repeated shampoos. Neither one of us was too happy about it.

And its funny Mash mentions bears. I've seen several in my wilderness adventures over the years but never close enough to be a threat. Except one time when one wandered through our campsite one night. Strangest damn thing, he just sort of snuffled around for a minute, checked us out and mosied off back into the bush. Almost shat my pants! And we did not go to sleep until the dawn.
