Yesterday morning, Ranger discovered one of these:
in our yard. He scratched at the hedgehog, as it balled up. I dragged Ranger inside to let the hedgehog leave the yard. Ranger just barked at the windows. When Ashlyn got up, we went outside to look at it. This made Ranger spaz even more as he ran barking from the front door to the back, repeatedly. That hedgehog just took his time getting away. He meandered through the yard, snuffling and sniffing around, as if there wasn't a dog wanting to get him the entire time. I finally let Ranger out after nearly two hours, where he sniffed the yard sufficiently and then quietly came back inside for a nap.
I want to go to a medieval festival and, perhaps, swimming. It sounds like Allen will be working all weekend, so I'll probably be on my own. The sudden appearance of clouds this afternoon does not seem like a good addition to my weekend plans. What are you doing this weekend?
