Baltimoreans will be cheering for their beloved Ravens during Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday, but you can cheer on another local celebrity earlier in the day during Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl . That's when cheerleader Valkyrie will enjoy her big moment in the sporting spotlight, and she'll be easy to spot--she's a hedgehog. Jennifer Smith of Columbia adopted her three-year-old, three-legged (Valkyrie lost a leg to an infection shortly before she was adopted) pet in October 2011 from Tru Chance Hedgehog Rescue & Rehab.

On Feb. 2, Punxsutawney Phil will emerge from his burrow after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow. As early as 3 a.m., flocks of Phil fanatics will trek to Gobbler's Knob in the hilly, chilly town of Punxsutawney, Pa., just in time for Phil's powerful prognostication. Will there be six more weeks of winter, or is spring just around the corner? This celebration of Groundhog Day dates back to a time when nature truly influenced our lives. It stems from similar beliefs associated with Candlemas Day, as told in an old Scottish couplet, "If Candlemas Day is Bright and Clear, there'll be two winters in the year."

"Once Upon a Forest"Animated featureDirected by Dave MichenerReleased by Twentieth Century FoxRated G... * 1/25/8 If there were a truth-in-titling clause in the federal code, "Once Upon a Forest" would have to be called "Three Vermin in Search of a Plot."Really, here's a movie about a mouse, a mole and a hedgehog. Bring on the cats! Here, nice kitty, kitty, come eat the cast. Thatta boy. Yes, gobble them up and swallow them down and spit out their bones.When Disney conflates a deer into some kind of mythic avatar of grace, beauty and purity in the world, that's fine, because as a creature a deer is a majestic gift, a miracle of sinew and bone on four sleek legs.

* Editor's note: A bossy badger learns that compromise and cooperation are important tools when it comes to building lasting friendships. It was a beautiful autumn day. Fox warmed herself in the last rays of the sun. The hares scampered here and there. Wild Boar munched on acorns and chestnuts, and Deer nibbled on the last juicy grass in the glen. Only Hedgehog snuffled restlessly through the leaves. "It will be winter soon," she said. "How do you propose we keep ourselves warm when the snow flies?"

They may be made of felt and fur and paper, but the Kaydee Puppets' rabbits, hedgehogs, wolves and little girl in a red riding hood will be the storytellers in a program Saturday at the White Marsh Branch Library, while puppeteers Dee and Chuck Cardiff stay behind the scenes, literally. The couple will work from behind a stage and use the hand puppets to involve the audience throughout the 30-minute event. "We stick mostly to fairy tales," says Dee, but they also update parts of the stories and throw in some current humor to keep it fun. The Kaydee Puppets will perform Little Red Riding Hood and Bunny Tales, including a story about Peter Rabbit and a hedgehog race and a story about how Peter outsmarted a fox and a wolf.

One look into those dark eyes, and 14-year-old Holly Reidt was hooked. This was no case of puppy love. It was something else entirely. It was marsupial love. On Christmas Eve, Holly opened her first gift, and it turned out to be her favorite. It was a sugar glider she named J-J Joey. Tears ran down her cheeks -- while her new pet, an Australian native resembling a flying squirrel, ran up her arm. "No one I know has one," says J-J Joey's proud owner, an eighth grader who also keeps a hamster named Sophia and a 2-year-old yellow Lab named Yallie at her home in Freeland.

ISAIAH Berlin, the great English critic, drew a distinction among novelists between hedgehogs and foxes. The fox knows many things, said Berlin, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. The same can be said of politicians.Jimmy Carter was a fox. He knew the nuts and bolts of policy and was widely credited with a keen intelligence. Ronald Reagan was a hedgehog; he knew one big thing -- government was not the solution, it was part of the problem.Bill Clinton is showing signs of foxdom. Is there an organizing principle to the Clinton agenda?
