Ted, my dear hedgehog, passed last week: April the 10, 2012, a day before my birthday. This little champion has provided me with much entertainment, comfort, and companionship that I had always thought I’d have with a hedgehog. I can only hope I also provided for him a happy household to cause a ruckus in.
To the best of my knowledge, Ted was of the African Pygmy variety, which is a variety of hedgehog that is specifically subject to wobbly hedgehog syndrome. His last few weeks of life he was afflicted with this, and it became increasingly hard for him to function as a proper hedgehog.
I realized this, and picked a good day that fit into both of our schedules and booked a shoot with him.
I will miss you Ted; I loved that little bugger.
