Computer monitor light with hallway light gave me enough darkness for them to come out and enough light for me to watch them finally! My daughter came in as well and we both sat and watched them running around their houses pushing things around, running on their saucer (which by the way is quite odd looking, not sure if they really like it?) snuffling under their various bedding, it was just so cute!

Riley jumped on his saucer a few times, Whyte did not. Whyte ran in these super-sprint-bursts in a funky pattern each time. Then he'd sit.....sit.....RUN RUN RUN!!! It was just too fun to watch. I have the computer in that room and am considering researching webcams again. At one point I had a webcam to watch my dogs during the day, that was fun. I think it would be fun to record the hedgies at night.

Re: I finally got to watch them play!

Oh yes id love to record my hedgie, i'd love to see how he completely trashes his cage of a night. Im lucky cus even with light on and my face right next to him he eats, drinks, and runs on wheel but i dont see him playing with his toys or anything so i'd like to see if he just ignores them etc.

You'll have to let us know if you do it :lol:

Re: I finally got to watch them play!

Just realized my mac has the built-in camera, I was thinking of the pc because that's the computer in their room. I am going to find out how to make this happen. Heck if I was really ambitious I could have it on the dogs during the day then back to hedgies at night, its a laptop afterall, and wireless, so wouldn't be a hassle to move. HMM!! Look out I'm on a project, everyone out of my way.... :D

Re: I finally got to watch them play!

I adore hedgies but I live in Pennsylvania where they are illegal. I would never subject a hedgie to possible confiscation just to satisfy my own wants. So I always come to the forums where people are kind enough to let me enjoy their little ones. I have also made friends with some wonderful people over the years. But obviously I do love Shetland sheepdogs too and I surely am owned by one of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: I finally got to watch them play!

off topic with ya' ....I have a Sheltie too! His name is Shep, he's about four years old. We have another male dog but he's definitely the man of the house. We just love him, what an interesting and highly intelligent breed.

Re: I finally got to watch them play!

I look forward to watching your animals play on the webcam! :lol:
Rocko's cage is always a disaster area in the morning. I'd like to see how he accomplishes such a big mess!

And I used to have two Shelties, too. :) My girl Lady, the one who followed me around everywhere and wouldn't sleep unless she was in my bed with me, died about a year ago of lymphoma. She was only seven. :cry: And when I left for college my parents kept Shania, my oddball little Sheltie puppy. I still get to see her when I go home and she peeks at me from behind the hallway, haha.

Please let me know if the site doesn't work but I believe I made it public. You will need quicktime. This is my night-shot video that I took of Riley. It is edited down to four minutes, he did this pattern repeatedly for a couple hours, I actually bored myself watching him on the wheel because he ran for so long, ha!
