Hedgehog Belly Rubs

This little guy is a very relaxed and happy camper.

Brazos Museum - Name that Hedgehog!

Maria Lazo, Museum Associate Director with the nameless hedgie

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History has received a rescue hedgie from the The Brazos Animal Shelter in Texas. The museum intends to use the little guy for educational programming. You can visit the hedgie and participate in the naming contest they are holding. I looked on the Museum website and it seems like you need to go in person to participate. The museum looks like a very cool place with lots of interesting exhibits. Too bad it is a *bit* of a commute from Canada.

I had a hard time figuring out what to name Peggy. I had to try a few different names over the course of a few days but then finally decided on Peggy for reasons I posted here. Actually to be very specific her full name is Lady Margaret Tiggywinkle. But that is more for a lark than anything. I know, I am a total geek. How did you name your Hedgehog?

Hedgehog Rides a Snail!

I really like these two works from Inside a Black Apple. They are cute and quirky with a bit of whimsy!

Happy Hedgehog Day!!

It is Groundhog Hedgehog day today! (see my earlier post on how the Groundhog usurped the Hedgie here) So, in a completely unscientific test I took Peggy out to see if she saw her shadow. Peggy did not see her shadow nor did she seem impressed with being woken up for this pagan ritual. I however am relieved winter will end.

Did your hedgie see her shadow today?
