My Little Tax Write Off (HELP ME!)

No, it's not my son, who turns 21 today (Happy Birthday, son - I love you!)
Nor is it my beautiful daughter in grad school (love you, too!) who we jokingly threatened to name the beast after....



It's my hedgehog!
For those of you not following me via Facebook, here she is:



I am currently working on a story involving a girl who wants a hedgehog as a pet (guess who wanted a hedgehog as a pet years ago...) It took very little convincing to have my husband agree. (Cats & dogs are verboten due to allergies.)

Here's the thing, we still haven't named the little girl, whom I picked up Sunday on my way home from the fabulous NESCBWI conference in New Hampshire.

Any ideas?

So far, we have Thistle, Cocoa, Cookie, and Porky (which could lead to an eating disorder, I fear). My boy said "Gorgoroth" so he can use her to transport his little army men when he comes home this summer. (BTW, did I mention he is a junior in college? haha)

Come on all you writers out there, I need some help to name my little female Chocolate Hedgehog!

Haha! I loved that character - she was a hoot. I wonder if I could get her some cat eye glasses to complete her look.

She very cute. Hmmm--I hate to say it, but I like Lady Godiva the prickly little chocolate girl.

She is very picky - the breeder said to use potholders if you had to try to get her to do something she didn't want to do...like getting in a traveling cage.

potholders - that cracked me up

That's a cute one...she could be a Mitzi. Did you ever have a pet by that name or did it just pop into your head?

She just looks like a mitzi to me.

Re: Hedgehog name
I like Spike quite a bit, however...he is a she!

She is adorable. Why not Gigi (which you can tell your adorable son is short for Gorgoroth)?

Re: hedgehog
She is a cutie. One funny thing she does is push orange wiffle golf balls around with her nose. She loves to rearrange everything in her cage every night, too.
