How lovely seeing the sleepy hedgehog post hibernation! And lucky that you left the hog house in an undisturbed place. Sounds very sensible to keep your dog on the lead. Hopefully your dog didn’t actually bite the hog, but if a dog does actually bite a hog, it’s best to get the hog checked over by a hog carer/rehabilitator, as dog bites (which can be very difficult to see on a hog) can lead to nasty infections.
Hopefully the hog remained unscathed and is fit and well. After hibernation, it’s so lovely hearing a hog snuffling around again! Lucky you – no hogs back, here, yet. I hope the little hog has a successful season.
Good luck and happy hog watching.
