    It is about a week away from being the 1 year anniversary of Ruby passing away. I still miss the little bugger. Well today mom and I drove down to Northern Virginia and picked up a new baby hedgehog :D

    My mom is calling him Max, I've yet to pick a name. He is a little over 6 weeks old(just old enough to be seperated from his mother). Hes tiny compared to the size of Ruby when she passed. He is also very friendly. Ruby would hide at any sudden movements or people she didn't know. The very first time he saw me he started playing with my hands and didn't freak out at all. He slept peacefully the entire ride home and was still sleeping a few minutes ago when I woke him for pictures.


    Any thoughts on names? I was going to name my next hedgehog another precious stones (ie. opal, saphire, etc.) but being as this is a boy, I don't care for that plan. I kind of like Max but want to make Mom sweat as to what the name will be. He has a little albino spot on the side you see in the second picture, just hidden in my hand. Spot is too obvious though, and NO WAY will it be Sonic.

    it doesn't seem like a year. Good ol' Ruby.

    Anyway, if you decide to go with Max... I think calling him Maximillian would be cooler. :thumb:

    I don't like Max. That's kinda common.






    You should name him Emery. That's my favorite name in the world.



    And he's pretty cute!

    Congrats on the new baby! Sure doesn't seem like a whole year that Ruby's been gone.

    Max is a cool name, but maybe something will strike you after you've had him for a few more days.

    Enjoy:)

    Why not go with a "rougher" stone? Granite, shale, something dirtier. Mud even...

    Hey, I hadn't thought of that, I'll have to think along those lines, thanks.\

    Hes cute, he didn't know how to operate the water bottle. So before I went to bed I gave him water from a water bottle cap. In the middle of the night I woke up to a banging noise. he had figured out how to get water, sort of. He would lick the end of the bottle a few times, get a little water, then chomp down on the end of it and pull on it. I can only imagine this is what he had to do to get milk from his mother? Whatever, hes getting the hang of it, just makes a racket when it bounces off the side of the cage cause hes shaking it.
