How long did Mr. Hedgehog live? Based on Bagoas' Xmas present I'd guess an hour, max.

Mr. Hedgehog had a long and productive life under prior wolfhound and greyhound management, but the new owner (by right of enthusiasm) has brought in a new program.

That last picture is lovely. What a pretty horsey. I'm gonna photograph the SHIT out of my house when I get home. Battle Photo will be ON.

So Mr. Hedgehog died, you served him up, you're happy you took photos of it, and the horse is not impressed.

Horse and sausage photographs are in the wrong order.

Indestructible toys never seem to actually be indestructible. But what a sweet dog...just begging for a big hug.

So then.
Mr.Hedgehog: white wine or red? Discuss.

I'm down in Columbus now permanently. Hope we can get together for a drink real soon!

Merry, Merry!

How could it be all that bad if thunder lives here?

I should be returning to Columbus around Monday or so, BG. And against all odds, I'll probably be thirsty again shortly thereafter.

A big part of the factors contributing to the Red wine/White wine decision around Mr. Hedgehog is the marinade. Bright citrus-y with thyme and lemon juice would likely call for a white. Richer, earthier marinade from soy and vinegar and perhaps coriander and cayenne would want a red...

Well, one does not wish to be a splitter, but have you considered the source of the Mr Hedgehogs?
Farm raised hedgehogs should be marinated in a red wine based marinade, their taste is too bland otherwise. Wild hedgehogs need a white wine/ vinegar based marinade because of their more gamy taste.
This is particularly true for the Hampton Hedgehogs which gain extra piquancy from the salt grass in that area.
