On Friday, Spartacus and I went to the local feed store to have him pick out his new birthday toy. Here is what he chose. It is a Hedgehog. I wanted him to get a nice purple Octapus. But he likes Hedgehogs for some reason. He likes furry things that make nice noises when you squeeze them. The new Hedgehog makes a very loud "honking" sound when you squeeze his middle, and he has smaller "squeekers" in his feet. About three years ago I got him a smaller Hedgehog. Here he is with both of them. He loves his new Hedgehog!!
