DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — If you think social distancing means just sitting at home, think again. Take Steve for instance: He's done everything from visiting Hogwarts Castle, to playing chess, to defeating dragons.
He's also done more than just watch a Harry Potter marathon. Also, this is where we should probably mention that Steve is a hedgehog who lives in Sedalia.
His family has been spending their time social distancing taking creative and ... dare we say ... very extra photos of Steve going on all sorts of adventures.
Steve’s mom, Kim Krueger, said he’ll be celebrating his first birthday on April 14. Colorado's stay-at-home order extends until at least April 11. The hedgehog has a sibling named Peppermint, and belongs to Kim’s 11-year-old son Alex (the family has another son, dogs and goats ... so it's a full house).
Krueger said they’ve been trying to make their Steve photoshoots fairly simple, and they have been doing them before Alex and his brother start remote lessons for the day.
