Today at work we were looking at the various volunteer opportunities to sign up for this year, and one that I really wanted to do (because I'm a sucker for anything that involves animals) was at Gress Mountain Ranch. It was a bit too far away from where I work, so despite my enthusiasm that idea got shot down. But of course, I got sidetracked checking out their website, and now I've decided I want one of these:

Seriously, how cute are they??
And speaking of odd pets, just because I feel like sharing, here's a photo of Holly, the sweet little hedgehog I had as a pet all through college:
Here she is playing under a dish towel on the kitchen floor during my junior year of college. (I think it must have been the burrowing instinct, this was one of her favorite games. That and running around with her head jammed into a toilet paper tube.)
I didn't realize this until Glen and I had already had Elvis for awhile, but Holly died on April 29, 2006 - the exact same day Elvis was born. Coincidence? I think not. :-)
