A local veterinarian was known for his wry humor.
He surpassed himself one summer day when a woman, who was visiting, brought a dog to him after an encounter with a porcupine.
After almost an hour of prying, pulling, cutting and stitching, he returned the dog to its owner, who asked what she owed.
“$150 dollars, ma’am,” he answered.
“Now that’s simply outrageous!” she stormed. “That’s what’s wrong with you people! You’re always trying to overcharge summer visitors. What do you do in the winter, when there is no one here to overcharge?”
“We raise porcupines, ma’am.”
