Everything in my back hurts today, so I’m not feeling much like blogging or joining in the holiday spirit of things. Here’s Tumbleweed not cooperating as I attempt to take a picture of her in a sleigh. I’m doing a blog hop contest starting next week  –  I’ll throw up some more details about that soon.  (I’ll be hosting my portion of it on my official author site). However, part of the giveaway is a stuffed hedgehog. Alas that Tumbleweed refused to really want to be part of the promo shots… (This is her: “I’m going to crawl into your bed tonight and shank you” look.) A melding of minds, perhaps.

Alas, the main point to this post is that I actually decided to take her to the vet on Saturday. (Lucky me, we have an exotic vet group right up the street.) Even if she was grumpy for the sake of being grumpy, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to at least get a baseline on her in case anything appeared to be wrong in the future. Of course, that does pose a bit of… Read more

And here she is. 🙂 Just one quick shot tonight, but I will try to get some better shots as the week goes on. She’s a bit timid right now (but she’s only 8 weeks old, so that’s understandable). As pygmy hedgehogs go, she’s pretty cute!… Read more
