Spring has sprung!!

Thank you all so much for sending Sweetpea good vibes! Yesterday she perked up quite a bit. Her coughing fits are slowly going away. Yesterday, while I was at home watching over Pea the whole ShyScout clan enjoyed some time in the sun.

It took some time coaxing pea out of her bed by the window, but eventually she gave in. (She does have all four legs, it is just an strange angle...she wasn't in the mood to model) Abe wasn't too sure about the fresh air either...

Eventually he started running around like a crazy man. The last photo is of him self anointing. When hedgehogs smell something unfamiliar they will spit on their backs to try to neutralize things. It is really strange and slightly gross but fun to watch. Abe had a bubble bath after this outing since he managed to cover himself in slime. How charming.

It sure was a beautiful day. Alright, let's be honest, this post was mainly to show off the loves of my life with a little bit of spring sprinkled in. I managed to hit up some thrift stores last night too. I found some pretty fantastic things, but I am saving that for another day.

Until next time, have a beautiful day!

  3. Seriously, Allison, your pets are the cutest animals ever! I am glad Sweetpea is starting to feel better. I am also happy you finally made it to the thrift store.

    The pictures of the flowers are beautiful.

  4. Glad your pup is feeling better! I brought mine to the park yesterday and she got stung by a bee. It broke my heart! haha but after an ice pack and an hour later, she was all good. Also, I adopted a dapple dachshund a few weeks ago, I just haven't shared it on the blog yet. I need to do that in the next few days! I've never had a dachshund before but he is stealing my heart!

    1. Thank you. Oh dear! I probably would have been more upset than my pup if she got stung, haha. I am glad she is ok!

      THAT IS SO EXCITING!!! OMG. AHHHHH. Dapple doxies are the cutest things on the planet. I hope you share him on your blog soon. I would love to meet the lil guy. AHHHHHH!! I love dachshunds so much, haha. I think you will probably see why soon if you haven't already :]

  5. Okay how cute is your hedgehog? Oh my goodness! I've always wanted one but I worry I'm only a dog person. Which of course means I love your pup as well ;-)

  9. I can't get over the amount of cuteness in this post. The hedgehog is so friggin adorable! Do hedgehogs cuddle? I know next to nothing about hedgehogs actually.

    1. Haha. Yes they do...well kind of. They are super timid creatures so it takes a bit of time for him to relax, but once he does he just snuggles on up next to me and sleeps. When he is really relaxed he spreads out his arms and legs and sprawls out. It is the cutest thing ever.

  10. Omg definitely cuteness overload!! I'm happy SweetPea was feeling better and what a sweet day you and your babies had sunbathing! I am so gaga over Abe and that picture of him laying out in the grass like a sun god. haha!!
    I had no idea hedgehogs slimed all over themselves - gross!!......but yeah, it is cute in a weird way. Is it hard to give him baths? Does he poke you or is that just porcupines? Sorry for the Q&A. I'm so curious! I really love Abe and it'd be awesome if I could convince Mikey to get me a hedgehog, but I know that won't happen. Jaxon would probably eat him. :/

    1. Nevermind, I just spent like the last hour or so reading up on hedgehogs and pet skunks. haha Mikey loves the hedgehogs...that's nice to know!! ;))

    2. Thank you so much. It was such a beautiful say, and has been all week. Haha, he does look like a sun god. He was getting all kinds of cozy in the grass.

      Haha, I am glad you took the time to research about them. A pet skunk would be wild, they are so cute. It is pretty easy giving abe a bath, he doesn't like it much though. He usually runs around the tub like a wild man. Some hedgehogs love to swim, but Abe not so much. I am glad Mikey likes them. I look forward to meeting you newest addition to the fam ;] jk.

      Sweetpea would love to try to eat abe if she had the chance though. I have to keep them separated or supervised at all times.

    oh! & what do hedgehogs feel like?
    they look prickly, but they aren't right?
    they are adorable none-the-less.

    & isn't the weather getting wonderful!? it's already 86 degrees here.
    sheesh.
    and it is only March.
    That just tells you how hot it gets here!

    1. :] They do look so similar! How cute. I am glad to meet another blogger with a doxie. I love them so much.

      Hedgehogs can hurt a bit to hold when they are scared and curled up in a ball, but when they are relaxed their quills are smooth. They sort of feel like hair brush bristles. His belly also isn't covered in quills, so it is nice and soft :]

      Oh my! It has been in the high 70's and 80's here all week. The weather completely skipped spring.
