Hedgehog Retriever

Boy howdy was Nigel a pissed little hedgehog tonight.  He was on my lap this evening and Quincy (my parents dog) decided it would be fun to pick Nigel up in his mouth.  We think maybe Quincy thought he was a toy?  Not sure if it was the mouth full of prickles or the fact that Nigel moved that freaked the dog out but one of those made him drop the little critter on the living room floor.

No worries - everyone is just fine but it did take good 15 minutes or so for the little critter to quit huffing and puffing and unroll.  Once he was upstairs and in the safety of his cage with some yummy worms all was forgotten.  Poor little dude.  I am glad everyone is okay....
