hedgehog neighbour

sniff sniff

During my visit to Sweden I was happy to encounter a hedgehog almost every day. This particular one hanged around in the backyard. It was very fond of eggs and liver paté. Its fondness for eggs made it try to eat the plate as well, with such gusto that I feared for its teeth, but the teeth remained unharmed. Unfortunately the photos don’t capture the sniffing and huffing and puffing that are their signature sounds.

    Such wonderful photos of the hedgehogs! When I was growing up my father talked about hedghogs as he was originally from Europe. Now I can see how wonderful they look in the wild. Thank-you!

    I once ran across one in Amstelveen a very long time ago. It involved Dutch gin, but relatively good behavior. All I can say, truly, is that the hedgehog did not approve. That hedgehog must have been a Protestant.
