Meet Rick, the hedgehog who is always smiling. When we picked up this shy African Pygmy hedgehog from the breeder, he didn’t show us much joy. We used to think, “This hog hates us”...

But then, slowly he opened up and became the most cheerful little fellow who makes me smile even on the worst days. I started taking photos of him because I think he is the cutest thing on earth. Rick always works the camera like a supermodel.

These photos are too adorable not to share. Prepare yourself for a serious cuteness overload!

"This is my Teddy, he's my best friend. Do you like him?" of course the only answer can be yes. That or surely you are heartless and dead inside... In which case you clearly need a smiling hedgehog in your life so go and look at the rest of the pictures!
