Guard duty – Small Stone # 29

the terrier guards against all trespassers, I never knew hedgehogs could scream




just so you know

no hedgehogs died for the making of this small stone

but baby hedgehogs can scream


when a dog just pokes them with a wet nose

  1. Poor doggie 🙂 I remember our dog barking very high when there were hedgehogs in the garden, but after one encounter, he never tried to attack them anymore!
    Lovely dog!


There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
