Extra Extra Hear all about it!!! Road trips, Birthdays and Baby News! Hear All the latest Gossip!!

 Hello Blogville it's you one and only Gossip Bunny with all the latest news and gossip from my neck of the woods.... And pals do I have a lot to tell you!

So here it all is...So to start mummy had a couple of weeks of work so we had a holiday booked but before we left Jet/Hogmite the Hedgehog had to have his last round worm injection and then had to go and stay with one of Mummy's Friends for a week while we went on our Road trip and then we were of to stay in a lodge at a place nr Axminster in Spa Resort. It was very posh!

Sunset at our Lodge...

Then mummy went on some day trips some with me some without me...First was Montacute house, Seatown beach and finally Barrington Court...

While we were away I celebrated my 2nd Birthday....That's right I'm 2 years old now but its bitter sweet for Mummy because it also was 2 years since Speedy The Cheeky House Bunny my Predecessor left for the Rainbow Bridge. But like all good things Holidays must come to an end so we got back Thursday Night to beat the Friday Traffic. 

On Friday Mummy when to pick up Jet/Hogmite the old hedgehog and he from her friend to bring him home And there was a Huge Surprise! Mummy scooped the Jet/Hogmite out of the pen with some Bedding and popped him in a box as he was moving about Mum lifted the lid to see how he was only to see something she wasn't expecting....A Baby hedgehog next to him.....Shock Horror Jet is most definitely not Hogmite...Jet is definitely Jet and Jet is not a boy! Jet is a female and is a Proud Mum! of Course Mum said straight away that Jet would have to go back in the pen because there would have to be more babies in the rest of the nest. So Jet has to stay at mummy's friend until the babies are bigger and then the hole family will come back to the back garden where Jet can teach her babies to hunt for food and where to find food eventually in the front garden The whole family will be released when they are already because although Jet is getting on in years she needs to teach her babies to survive...maybe she will decide to stay in the garden maybe not but she is the first female Hedgehog to come and stay in the front garden in our nest boxes to have her babies. Normally they go and have their babies else where and then bring them to stay in our garden for a while to learn that there is always food, water, and a place to stay if they need it. So Jet came to have her babies with us because she was unwell and wanted a palace where she could rear her babies safely where food and water was plentiful. But also had Mummy not found her and got her the treatment she needed then there is a high risk that she and her babies would have passed away....Mummy saved not just Jet but her family too!

And last but not least Jo-Jo the Crow also stopped by for a visit Saturday Morning too...she was a bit naughty as she tried to steal one of mummy's diamond earing's but luckily she dropped it on the floor...imagine if she flew off with it?

Mummy doesn't normally have earing's in but she hadn't got round to taking them off when Jo-Jo turned up. Mummy said it was her fault for not taking them off before going out to feed Jo-Jo but at least that turned out okay with Mummy being able to retrieve the earing. Well after all that News you guys must feel worn out so best go take a nap...Until next time!

Hello Blogville its your one and only Gossip Bunny

Hello Blogville its your one and only Gossip bunny with all the latest gossip from my neck of the woods

I am sorry to say that things have been quiet here at my home not much in the way of adventures for me. Its either been to wet and windy or when it has been dry to cold for me that we really haven't been anywhere. That being said I have got some bits of gossip for you! Remember Roddy AKA Rodette the Hedgehog that was living with us for the winter well after having a soft release in the back garden she eventually decided to go back to the wild off on her adventures so we wish her safe travels on her journey!

Jo the Crow is still about and she is doing well sometimes she visits us and sometimes she doesn't...*giggles* she's a funny bird with her whims and moods

But as Roddy AKA Rodette vacated the greenhouse we have a new guest or rather an old one back in the greenhouse. Mummy was cleaning the food boxes for the Hedgehogs in the front garden and heard coughing coming from one of the nest boxes, so she investigated the box and found a large old male looking a bit poorly like he had lost a bit of weight. He stayed in the greenhouse over night and went to the vets on Monday  with a sample of his poop and he has roundworm for which he is being treated for but he also has ringworm on his face in a couple of places. How ever the Vets said he was a old hog and didn't want to put him under the stress of their normal treatment for ringworm so mummy has been in touch with a friend she know who has a Hedgehog Hospital and got some advice on how to treat the ring worm here at home so the stuff for that has to be ordered, its not easy to get so its going to take a while for it to arrive. Mummy said she will do everything she can to get Hogmite healthy but the reality is he is old and this could be his last year so he is going to be in retirement with us in the back garden for how ever long he has left. Mummy said normally they can only be kept if they are sick and getting treatment..which he is or if they are disabled they can live in a secure garden.

And I went on an adventure to an old Medieval church in a village called Marystow. The original part of the church that remains dates to the 1300's but has been rebuilt and added to many times over the centuries...

                                             Well that's all for now, Until next time
