Can you guess which of the hedgies in this strip is Rupert? I’ll give you a hint: Each hedgie has a slightly different color scheme, so feel free to look back in the past comics and see which one is most like our Rupert.

The calendar in the back of the strip is one for Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital, a famous wildlife hospital in England that specializes in the care of hedgehogs! In honor of our fictional Rupert, I donated to the hospital and helped adopt a hedgehog by paying for his food and care for a year. Want to help out? You can currently adopt Hoggle, a permanent resident hedgie at Tiggywinkles and pay for his care for the next year! Chapel and the ladies at the Hedgehog Society would surely thank you.
I'am drawing the hedgehog society because it's so cute😆

Emoji hero 5/18/15
I'm so happy you like it!

Like it it's too funny and cute but mostly funny

Aww this strip is adorable!! And speaking of hedgies my friend just got a baby pygmy hedgehog who is tiny and looks like the cutest creature in the world.They named him Atticus.
It was so funny because when she first told me about her knew hedgehog my mind went straight to Chapel!!! ^^

Gosh I'm tired.
Ava 10/18/13
Oh my goodness! I wish I could have a hedgie, but they're illegal to keep as pets in California. Good luck to your friend on her hedgehog-owning adventure!

now for something completely diffrent! i have started on a new, hopefully a serirs of short stories about a young girl Named "Rachel Genny" and her family. It is the first work i have done in years and i am thinking of posting snipits of it here this friday for you all to look over.

the only bit i am worried about it that i am trying to split the reading between real time normal story narration and Diary logs/after the fact parts.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/17/13
mind you, this will be REAL rough draft and might have misspellings. i'm doing this on note pad anyway. I do need to get a copy of word somehow.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/17/13
well, i could just email you a copy if that is alright. i don't have many places i can post it.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/17/13
Taxil, I'm so excited that you're working on a short story! However, I don't think this is a great place to post it. Do you have somewhere else you could put it so that people can read it?
 Emma  10/17/13
So... many... adorable... hedgehogs...

I like the hedgehog in the wheel, running then panting, running then panting... a true workout.
whippedcream 10/16/13
Yes, definitely! Panel 1 was so much fun to draw -- a whole panel of cute hedgies, what's not to like?
 Emma  10/17/13
This conversation is kind of reminding me of the Monty Python four Yorkshireman sketch.

'When I were a young lad, we had to get up at 6 in the morning, clean the paper bag, walk up to work in t'old mill for 6 pence a month and when we got 'ome, our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt.'

Ivresse 10/16/13
Ha ha, yes...don't worry, Chapel will get her fair share of hard work!
 Emma  10/17/13
Hehe lol" Have you considerd getting a job?"
Julie 10/14/13
in this economy, good luck Chapel! Although Miss Emma has a great head start on hers.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/15/13
Thank you, Taxil, that's very kind of you!
 Emma  10/17/13
It's never too young to start, according to the ladies of the Hedgie Society.
 Emma  10/17/13
I actually think that the hedgehog between the running wheel and the brown and grey hedgehog (with the tennis ball between them) is Rupert.
Charlamayne 10/14/13
Rupert is actually the one trying to talk to the orangey hedgehog, and then getting rejected! Although he does look similar to the one playing with the ball, his nose is less pointy.

my baby cousin Jonathan, i saw him a couple of months ago. he brought out the "ahhhhhhh how cute!" even out of me.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/13/13
Aww, well, babies in general are just super cute.
 Emma  10/17/13
Hedgies playing is SO fun to draw, because yes, they are so cute!
 Emma  10/17/13
Ha ha! In the first panel, I love how the hedgehog is peeking out of the sock! Its adorable! Of course, the rest are too!
Izzy (Isabella) 10/11/13
Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I had fun drawing the hedgies all doing different things in each panel. They're so cute!
 Emma  10/11/13
I love the gray hedgie!!! Sooooo cute!!!
Missy 10/11/13
is the one playing with the Ball! right?

OH! HAH! yes Chapel and Miss Emma, i WAS working when i was eleven. But i know it's a job that kids these days are probably never going to have any more, sad to say. I'll let you all guess what job it was. just post it here I'll tell you how close you guess is.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/11/13
Eh, I worked summers with my dad when I was eleven. He was a painting contractor, and I was cheap labor and followed instructions better than some of the people he hired... and most times the owners thought it cute that I was helping out dad.

Were you a paperboy Taxil? When I was a kid, I couldn't be a paperboy; I had to be sixteen and have a car. TV lied to me yet again (much like firemen rescuing cats from trees isn't true either).

It does seem that Chapel is older than eleven on many an occasion, I think as well, so it might be an easy mistake to make.
Miles 10/11/13
Wow, got it at the first swing! Yes, i was a paper boy, a CLASSIC paper boy! i carried around 80 pounds worth of newspapers in a sling sack and walked my neighborhood and a nearby neighborhood as well. I mowed lawns too later on.

It's sad that this young generation will never know what being one is like. It's all moved to guys in cars delivering them now.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/11/13
"Newspaper"? Wot's dat??

KilleenWizard 10/12/13
OUCH! right in the old age! ><
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 10/12/13
Ha ha!
 Emma  10/17/13
Hopefully they won't die out yet! I still read the NY Times every day.
 Emma  10/17/13
A paper boy! That's so cool, Taxil. What an interesting job to have.
 Emma  10/17/13
Chapel is more mature than some other people her age, yes, but she still does act like a kid on occasion. It's neat to read about everyone's job experiences!
 Emma  10/17/13
I'm sorry, but I have no idea what the job might be.
I agree that Rupert is probably the one playing with the ball!
Izzy (Isabella) 10/11/13
I am 12, but had a job when I was 11 too. Babysitting.
Izzy (Isabella) 10/12/13
Oh, babysitting. That's a good job!
 Emma  10/17/13
Rupert is actually the one trying to talk to the orange hedgie, and getting rejected! The one playing with the ball has similar colors, but a pointier nose than Rupert's.
