“Un grand merci for your work and your website! I thought you might appreciate these photos of a cute hedgehog discovering my parents’ garden on a sunny afternoon. Monsieur Hérisson is rather photogenic, and didn’t seem to be too scared when my dad took it in picture. à bientôt!” -Emma (from Paris, France)

Alternative Caption Theater

Sender-inner Sarah Q. helpfully pre-captioned this photo of this hedge and bear. Well if there’s anything our readers love, it’s putting words in the mouths of cute animals — and a challenge. So, what else might these two be saying?

Dr. Who Hog

Cory C. sent us photos with this note: These are pictures I took of my wife’s pet hedgehog, Pertwee. He is named for Jon Pertwee who played the third Doctor on Doctor Who in the 1970′s.

The Folks Back Home Are Never Gonna Believe This

Golly gracious, Hedgeopolis is such a big city! It’s been an thrilling vacation so far: skating at Rockquillfeller Center, a show at Radio City Nosicle…


… and the view from the Statue of Prickly is simply breathtaking!


It’s a good thing that Sarah McManiman took pictures!

Picnic pics by Lindsay C. who says, “Meet Buckley the Hedgehog; the sweetest little pudge-ball you’ll ever meet. They say hedgehogs are grumpy, but Buckley is quite the lover. He’s so cooperative and calm, he seems to truly enjoy each little photo shoot that we have.”

Cough Due to Cold?

Let me get you a tissue.


Get plenty of rest. May I recommend sleeping underneath something? The pressure is quite nice for a congested face.


Corndogs are a cure-all. They certainly make me feel better.


And by popular demand, we bring you TOOF-HANCE™


Penelope Pickles is a little helper! Melissa D. S. says, “Her favorite things are corndogs and naps. You can’t leave your plate idle with her around.” You can follow Penelope on the Facebooks.

Run for the Border!

You braved the seven-layer burrito; you marveled at the Doritos taco shell; and now Taco Bell brings you the ultimate in stunt cuisine: The Quillupa™, a spiky hedgehog wrapped in a soft flour tortilla — with extra sharp cheese.


“Hey, were you going to eat me? You were, weren’t you?”


Nikki M. says: “My baby hedgehog is so adorable a sweet and I just had to share him with you! His name is Sonni (pronounced like ‘Sunny’ — short for Sonic Spindash) and he’s almost 8 weeks old. I adopted him at 6 weeks old. Usually hedgehogs take a little while to become people friendly and socialized but with a lot of attention and love, he opened up within only a couple days!”

The Quill is Mightier

My great-great-great-great-great grandfather was Quilliam Shakespeare. His pin name was The Barb of Avon.


Sender-inner Christine L. tells us this is Barnaby! “He is a reverse pinto and we got him from Hamor Hollow. He is the cutest thing I have ever seen so of course I take pictures of him all the time.”

Sleeping In On Sunday- Do Not Disturb

Business-Class Buckley

Hello! Today I’m off to the annual convention of the Association of Quill Straighteners. Just a moment for a goodbye kiss from my lovely wife, Betsy — mwah! — and it’s away to the airport!


As a frequent business traveler, I demand on-time performance and a generous rewards program. That’s why I rely on Air Hand™.


Air Hand’s WheePerks™ Double Bonus Miles program rewards me with extra miles whenever I yell “whee!” while flying. I’m not sure why that’s so important to them, but apparently it is. Now, if you’ll excuse me, they’re calling my flight…
