Chucky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chucky
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Delran, New Jersey, USA
   Chucky, an African Pygmy Hedgehog, is almost a year old. He lives with his owner, Missy, and grandparents, Gloria and Paul, in Delran, New Jersey. His best friend is Max, our ten-pound LhasaPoo dog! Chucky loves computing all night long--as you can see from his photo he keeps Missy company right by the computer as she searches the internet or composes letters. He is a nocturnal animal and fits right into all our lifestyles. During the day he lives in a glass cage with cat balls to play with for exercise when he is not off bristling against the computer's monitor and Brrriiinngg with annoyance when it won't give way to his insistent attack with his quills. Chucky has future plans for a hedgehog chat room and maybe a summertime get together.
