I be grumpy hedgie by JesIdres I be grumpy hedgie by JesIdres
This be Dexter, my friend's hedgehog who has managed to make me go aww at every dang picture he's in. So much so that I probably will adopt or purchase one from a breeder after I decide I have the resources for a wonderful little one. (And I have decided naming one after a character from Sonic the Hedgehog should be a capital offense. That show is the cause of so many abused hedgies...)

Dexter's a bit of a grump, being the subject of so many pictures, but he's still adorkable. I mean, terribly so.

Based off a failed attempt to catch record of the infamous "Butt of Invisibility". Yes, Dexter, acting like an ostrich makes you completely invisible (hey, she never did get it on film...maybe it really works...)


*Runs away with him*

10 minute sketch from photo, with HB .5 lead on copy paper.

EDIT: Dexter now has a cousin ;D my very own hedgie, Wiki.

We have a semi-tame wild hedgie in my garden in the UK. It was only a tiny baby when we found it, it was badly malnourished. But now it's kinda a pet after we cared for it.

Maybe he's grumpy from so many people huggling his cute little self? I certainly would. I love hedgehogs but whenever my friends see that I have pics of them on my laptop they look at me like I'm weird for loving their cuteness. Nice job.

Not always. Just depends on disposition and how their cared for. Dexter is a rescue pog, which is why he's a bit aloof and grumpy.

Awww! We used to have a hedgie, but then she died. Still miss her. Hedgies say "Huff Chuff" and then they go quill (meaning curl up) She was such a sweetie. Love the drawing!
