Photo Tag: Piggy who passed on

This is Sally Snert. She was doing a favorite hedgehog activity, tubing. The charming yellow tube you see here is made from craft foam by her breeder. Hedgepigs like to stick their hedges into small spaces, especially something the size of a toilet paper tube. Then they wave their heads around, run, scoop up bedding & act generally silly. It looks like they hate the tube, but take it off of them, and they stick their little head right back in! It is effing hilarious.

Sally Snert was my second hedgehog; she did not develop properly & died at around 6 months of age. Don't let this scare you away from hedgies, it doesn't usually happen. I will write more about Snert in the future.

Now we need to play photo tag! I was tagged by Mother Moon. Here are the rules:
Open your first photo file
Scroll to the 10th photo
Post the photo and tell the story behind it
Tag five more people
I did cheat a teeny bit. The 10th photo in the hedgehog file was one I had already posted! So I went with Sally Snert.
I am tagging 
Birgit at because she's sure to have something wonderful
Nydia at because she's sure to have something interesting
Jules at because she's sure to have something green
Willow at because she's sure to be a cool new blog friend

One Pink Fish, or because she's sure to have awesome kid pics!
Go forth & post!


  1. What fun! Thank you for including me - we'll have to see just how green that photo might be!

  2. Too cute how they love something on their heads!

    Sad about Sally though. Luckily you've adopted more and are sharing the love!

  3. Thanks for thinking of me! I just posted about my 10th photo, and I loved yours, so funny! Mine also has a little rodent in it! :o)

    Kisses from Nhydia.

  4. Oh my, hedgies are INSECTIVORES, they get insulted if you call them rodents ;)

  5. Oh, how sad! Only 6 months. :(

  6. I am about to finally post my photo -- thanks for the fun! :)
