The Official Announcement

Let me introduce you to Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle!

She arrived in our arms on Thursday afternoon and has endeared herself in everyone's hearts.

When she gets upset she becomes a very prickly ball,

but it usually doesn't take her too long before she goes back into the adorable little house Shannon made for her.

Congratulations to all you who guessed a hedgehog! Now you just have to stop by to see her. ;-)



  1. She is soooo cute! I love hedgehogs!

  2. Oh my goodness! How adorable! And what a great name... :-)

  3. Oh Tiff! You are the luckiest girl ever!
    Where ever in the world do you get a hedgehog?!
    Mrs T. is just absolutely Lovely! You are ever ever so lucky! *swoons*

  4. Thank you all for your lovely comments.

    Aly-I happen to think she's quite cute myself. ;-)

    Laura-When I first showed her to people at school they kept asking if her name was Sonic. As if I could every name something with such a cute face after a video game. Once I knew I was getting a hedgehog, I knew the name would be either MRS. Tiggy-Winkle or MR. Pricklepins (a rather unknown Beatrix Potter sketch that Shannon found). Well, as you know she turned out to be a MRS. Tiggy-Winkle.

    Kim-It was quite a challenge finding a pet store that carries them as they are considered exotic pets. I finally found one about three months ago and was put on their waiting list. And voila! Seriously, you should come over and see her!


  5. Tiff! I would absolutely LOVE to! My heart was taken away by the photos! And now all my poor dear husband has heard about is "the hedgehog!" haha! :o) You my dear have one of the best presents of the year - a prickly wee lil one to take care of! Oh joy!

    Hope you all have a Blessed and Merry Christmas! And hope to see you, Shan, Mom and Mrs TW soon! ;oD
