He looks so adorable...

...but just couple of days later he bit someone's feet when the food didn't come fast enough! Lucky me it was somebody else who was too slow delivering the food. :)

It was the defense of vested interests. Yes, that is very sweet looking. It's nice to see a hedgehog even in the picture. Around here they do not show up. Oh, and happy birthday. Suddenly, the time has elapsed.

@Jypyä Pop: You don't have any hedgehogs running around anymore? That is so sad...
Thank you, the time goes by so fast it's sometimes hard to understand...

A wonderful image, Hedgehogs are now quite rare, it is nice to see that there are still some of them!

Beautiful Thursday to both of you!

Hope your not thinking of turning the Terrible Two into the Terrible Three...Sounds like young Spikey would fit in no problem . ;>))

@Jeff & Pat: Oh no, Spikey lives so far away it would be a bit of a problem to include him into the Terrible Two (or three)... :)

Happy Birthday!!!!
I have never seen a live hedgehog - we do not have them where I live. This is so adorable!!!

@Ruthiebear: Thank you!
Wow, I never thought someone lives somewhere where there aren't any hedgehogs! I wish I could send you a couple of them so you could enjoy seeing and hearing them - they are absolutely wonderful and get used to people quite easily. :)

Happy birthday to you! Pity it's not a coded message from your seniors.
Lovely shot, I never knew they bit people, we have one that visits regularly and we give it treats too.

@The Mouse: Thank you! Well, atleast they are not talking about how many years I've been around... :-)
I think this was the first time I've ever heard them biting someone... When I was a kid we had a whole family of them visiting us every summer evening, they ate from the same bowl with our dogs and never bit people. :-)
