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!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Jeep

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to our edition of SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!

UPDATE:  Jeep turned ONE yesterday – OMP – Squeals – Let’s all wish him a Happy Birthday too!

Name:  Neutron the Jeep, (call me Jeep)

Age:  20, well, 10 months but compared to humans I’m at that physical stage in my life

Location:  THE BEACH!!! (Indian Shores, Florida)

Web/Blog Page:  Neutron Jeep – Facebook (Be sure to pop over and say hey – remember to tell Jeep that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)  

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Thank God! They look like they love doggies

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Mommy did the “flipty flip” thing with me while Daddy filmed it.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  I growled at Daddy while I was eating his leftover steak bone. He threw away the bone and put me in “time out” it was very sad.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Daddy. He likes to act tough but he can NEVER resist loving on me when I brush up against him

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  I’m a “cute”, “sweet”, and loving little dog. I’m not that little. I’m not always “good” and CERTAINLY not always “sweet”.


 Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Jeep – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
