National Squirrel Day


News Flash * News Flash * News Flash * News Flash * News Flash * News Flash

This just in from Rocky the Squirrel Journalist – I’m temporarily taking over this blog for a public announcement. Today is National Squirrel Day. That’s right folks. You heard it here first. The pig has been dethroned off his lap top so that this message may be brought to you. This is in the upmost seriousness.

In case you were wondering: Squirrel Appreciation Day was created by wildlife rehabilitator Christy Hargrove of Asheville, North Carolina

There are more than 300 species of squirrel. Different types of squirrels range in size from five inches (the African pygmy squirrel) to three feet (Indian giant squirrel). The word “squirrel” comes from the Greek word skiouros, which means shadow-tailed.

When hiding its food, a squirrel goes through an elaborate process of masking the location by pretending to bury the item a few times before settling on a final spot. While red squirrels are known for vigorously defending their territories, some females turn over all or part of their holdings, including a critical food cache, to their offspring as a way of bolstering the pups’ chances of survival during the difficult first year of life.

So upon this holiday, please reflect a few minutes on us and throw us some extra feed.

Thank you very much. This public announcement had been brought to you by Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. Thank you for your time.

Nana Brought Gifts

20130120-140343.jpgNANA BROUGHT GIFTS!!

I have the bestest nana in the world!

I was all cuddly on the couch beside mommy and we heard a knock on the door.  It was nana.

She dropped in unexpectedly and brought me something – something that was totally wonderful.

Something that was totally out of this world.  Mommy has been telling her how excited I get over these things.

She had to see if for herself and even fed me a few of them.  They were scrumptious!  I got all kinds of them.  I know you’re asking, “Just tell me pig – what did you get?”  Well, let me just show you what she brought this little oinker.


Well, nana brought me some bananas and some Animal Crackers!  FOUR pounds of delicious animal crackers.  Mommy has been telling her that I know what the container looks like.  As soon as I saw it, I went crazy!  Whoever thought you can buy this much in bulk?  I love them!

I may be a lot of things but my little belly gives me away every time.  I think mom even ate a couple of these.

Don’t you love them too?
