So out walking in our local park this evening and I always pause to feed the birds, Ripley normally just wonders about and sniffs around (and chases the odd squirrel too..!). My attention was on the birds and the next thing I know Ripley is howling and howling next to a litter bin. I call her over and she comes and I calm her down but then she trys to lead me straight back to the bin. She is not a barky or howly dog when out walking, she is vocal when playing with dogs but that is it. She goes back to the bin and starts to howl and bark again so I follow her over and look in the bin and there is a hedgehog stuck in there! Ripley carries on howling until I carefully pull out the bin bag and release the hedgehog into a nearby bush, I could see it was still breathing, just balled up. I then look at Ripley who comes over nudges my hand, wags her tail and walks away all happy again...! I think my girl saved a hedgehog tonight!!!
