    Kudos to you for having the kindness and dedication to helping creatures great and small. We have our two little poochies and - much as I love them - I don't have the energy for a house full of them. But then, I also raised an only child. I must not be a great multi-tasker!

    Patty! I think it is more to do with drawing the line and setting our limits, accepting reality rather than your multi tasking abilities. I certainly wouldnt want to over commit myself and who in their right mind volunteers themselves for a life of stress,obligation, demands and hassle when it is not compulsory and there is no objective. It must require excellent multi tasking skills to raise a child and a dependant at that. The concept of 'quality of life' as opposed to 'slave' is just too important. Dedication is one thing but overstepping your limits has too many consequenes.

    Clive!I have a hedgehog that has taken up territory sharing ours and the neighbours back garden. It was great having significantly less slug damage this year and no need for the awful sight of slug pellets. The greenist ive ever been i think.

    Well hedgehogs are one of natures beautiful pest removers shame they are getting less and less these days...if every one left a pile of leaves in a corner...they the hedgehogs would have a nice place to rest over winter...most gardens have wooden fencing so they cannot get from one garden to the next....now people are asked to make a little hole just under one fence...hedgehogs will find the hole and can continue to go to the next garden.....My brother hes a falconer and has many falcons he flies....just the other day i saw a sparrow hawk eating a Pigeon on our road so cool

    Default Im not talking to you!

    I feel as if im writing speech bubbles for a cartoon strip or comic. Seriously though its purely a different perspective on the care required.

    As the tank is screened off when Im not home to avoid one major ailment of these creatures in captivity, which is snout rot from constant rubbing of nose to glass, when I am home and otherwise engaged the sounds of excessive bumping and banging about of the tank are surely these pair having a bro/sister fall out/disagreement/ and a good chase about. Not often thankfully, and if a mating pair would require attention aswell as two of the same sex coupled off would mean caution.

    The easiest thing for me to do to break the tension is to give them time out/ space.........they always make up shortly afterwards with a joint exploration of the room, knocking dvds flying and pulling curtains down.

    I have a Sheltie named Gracie - she's our second Sheltie. I love the breed! My husband went from having a big old slobbery English bulldog to deciding he needed a smaller dog - one that we could handle and lift easier. So before his old bulldog had to be put down, we got a pseudo-chihuahua. The owners said he was pure-bred and showed us his parents, but I am sure someone else hopped the fence, because this little guy looks and acts more like a miniature hound dog. This little guy is named Bugsy and is the epitome of the word "joy." He does everything with exuberance!

    Default How to train your dragon to surf.

    Not usually a photogenic character when on his 'runaround' but the warmth of the keyboard came in useful. This is Mr Beardie (i know i could have been more inventive), a Bearded Dragon , 7 years old living in a completely different setting to the guys above, from the amazon to the sahara.

    He went for an afternoon nap on the 25th November and has just resurfaced fom his seagrass basket privacy section, ramming the door since sunrise for water and bugs. Raging hormones will be wasted though as there is no female about or male for that matter to express strength in a wrestle. I suppose I could refer to the needed presence of a female in order to wrestle.! A Female would live a very unhappy life sharing with a male in captivity as in the wild you have one male dominate who has the most elevated position available, a 'x' number of males who dare to challenge and a harem of females to share the burden of the very harsh and violent mating procedure.

    Here he is after an hour of observing the mouse cursor on the screen activating all the keys functions on the keyboard.
