Squirrel Appreciation Day


 

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

.

.

Today, January 21st, is a great and wonderful day my fellow friends.  It is Squirrel Appreciation Day.  I can tell you – today is *my* day.  Today, you should appreciate us tree climbing, entertaining, nut gathering neighborhood squirrels.  Being a squirrel can be hard.  Some of us give others a bad name.  They are the ones that eat food out of the feeders, eat some veggies in your gardens and chase/tease your pooches.  Then there are squirrels like me who are highly educated, have families to take care of and bring your enjoyment and education.  Focus on us great squirrels for the day.  Heck, give us some nuts, a little hand out, or wave at us from time to time.

Enjoy the day my friends.  I’ll be back soon!

Dear Bacon – Special Edition – Dear Boo

This week is a really special edition of Dear Bacon.

My friend Boo at http://peacelovenwhiskers.com has volunteered to help me out once again with some special letters.  Boo concentrated really hard, read the letters and posted some awesome replies.  Please show some love to Dear Boo my friends!  And, don’t forget to go and visit him at his blog.  He’s still a kitten and is full of energy and spunk as you will see below 🙂  Enjoy

Dear Boo,
What? We’re just taking a break, figured I would show you what true working mules really do. Not the easy job of going to birthday parties and having kiddies ride your back. No, this is hard hat and safety gear moving dirt sort of work. So when do you plan on joining us?
Signed Working 925 Mules

Dear 925 Mules,

I don’t think meowmy would want me playing in dirt, but I would look great in a pair of shades and a white hard hat. Meowmy would appreciate me wearing a safety vest though so she can see me better at night.  Signed Boo

Dear Boo,

Why are they laughing? I just stuck my head in a bag of chips and this is what I came out of the bag with. Can you enlighten me as to what’s so funny? Signed in confusion, Duckface Dog

Duckface Dog,
If they are laughing then you are doing something right. I say prance around and enjoy the attention, then demand more chips. I would.  Signed Boo

Dear Boo,

Here I am making my doggy treat withdrawal for the day. The humans wanted me to be more responsible with my treats so I opened an account. I’ve got about 20 dog bone treats deposited. Not bad for being a few weeks into the new year. How are your resolutions holding up?  Signed, Biscuit Keeper

Dear Biscuit Keeper,
I’m sorry I have 2 brofurs here and leaving treats unguarded in the house is dangerous. I wish I could deposit mine for safe keeping for later, but I‘m “live in the present” sort of kitty. But that’s for the advice. Love, Boo

Dear Boo,

*yawns* I think it’s time for a cat nap, can I lay with you?  Yawning Piggy

Dear Piggy,
*yawns* Sure, but I don’t think you can quite sleep curled up like I do. And I think Meowmy will suspect that I was trying to harm you.  Your sleeping pal, Boo

Dear Boo,

Eeeeeekk! It’s after me, quick hide me! Scared deer

Dear Scared Deer,

*eyes widen, crouches low, butt wiggles, leaps, catches*  Oh it’s just a little bat.. or squirrel, either way you are safe now my friend. You may want to take a flashlight next time you go into the woods.  Your rescuer, Boo

.

A huge shout out and thank you for Boo for taking care of Dear Bacon this week. I really appreciate it pal!
