    Default Encounter with the unknown

    A bit blurry pic but still shows how Castor tonight had his first close encounter with a hedgehog. He was very curious but the hedgehog of course didn't respond the way Castor expected, so Castor got rather agitated by the lack of response (and, we suspect, from the hedgehog spines).

    You have to be careful with those Castor. I've seen what they can do to a bullys mouth when the encounter is too close....

    You are right - I think both Castor and we learned that there are other animals that make better friends!

    @RiiSi Update: we have now also learned that hedgehogs carry fleas...late last night we noticed something crawling on Castor's face and he was scratching. I brushed him and wiped him with wet towels and found some more.After that no more scratching and Castor slept all night so I think we got rid of them, and Castor has Bravecto against ticks and they should also take care of fleas. I knew hedgehogs had ticks but had no idea about the fleas. Apparently very common that dogs get hedgehog fleas (although they don't do much harm as the dog isn't a suitable host).

    Gosh - I've always liked hedgehogs but from now on we'll stay away from them!

    Thanks for the news on hedgehogs, less likely to happen here however those black and white stripped kitties raccoon, possums are common here and all have fleas. Chance has been told that he is not allowed to have them on his friends list. Mind you Chance will look at a dandelion and if the wind moves it he will bark at it for 10 minutes - go figure Castor has the world to explore unfortunately it does not all fit in the mouth but he will try. Give him a tickle from us

    Yes, bulldogs are inquisitive animals! I do understand we were naive, though - I knew they have ticks and should have realised they have fleas too. Castor is a very friendly guy who wants to say hi to everyone but clearly there are some that should not be on his friends list, as you say!
