GUESS WHAT?

I'M GETTING A HEDGEHOG TOMORROW!!!!!

Now that it's a reality, I'm a little nervous. Getting a new family member is a big deal. I was pretty much over the obsession, then there was an ad in the paper that got me started up again but that guy was all out of hedgehogs. Mr. Ashley had already given the okay on an early birthday hedgehog so he felt bad for me that the hedgehogs were gone.

Then I found some on Craigslist. They live in Miami but the lady is delivering hedgehogs all over the S. Florida area tomorrow and is putting me on her route. They are 3 months old, all boys. She asked if I wanted a blond or a regular and I told her to save the tiniest, sweetest one for me (actually Mr. Ashley told her that, but I told him to tell her that. He handled the calling part which was way nice of him). I don't really care which color, as long as it doesn't have red eyes.

So what shall we name it??

How about Badger? As in Ashley had to badger Mr. Ashley for nearly 3 months to get her hedgehog...

Congrats! When you fell in love with them you swore it was inevitable. Glad to see you finally wore him down.

Bonus- Hedgehogs have a natural defense against little kid!

Asshole? That's usually what I end up calling all my animals the first time they poop in my house. Might as well cut to the chase and just name 'em that.

Napoleon, for sure.

I'm excited for you, I want one really bad! My dog would almost certainly eat it, though.

Hows about "Lil Prick"? Sorry, that was the very first thing that came to mind, and I figured I'd better not type that, but what the hell:)
Congrats on getting a hedgehog! Please post pics when you get him!

Aw - I'm sooo jealous! My son's best friend in high school had a hedgehog (along with a bunch of other "weird pets". It was so cute! He brought it to school for show-n-tell one day and I happened to be there as a parent helper. He was the star of the class for the whole day.

I can't think of a good name, but I did like the Lil Prick suggestion Jen made. Might be kind of hard to explain to the kids though...

I cannot believe you actually got a hedgehog.
