…there seems to be a mass amount of groundhogs where I live in Ottawa, Canada. I am not accustomed to this phenomena, being from the East Coast. But I absolutely ADORE seeing them. They are so cute and hilarious to watch. They all seem to stand up on their hind legs and just stare for extended periods, and I just have to giggle every time I see them standing…they just look so dead serious, you wonder what they could possibly be pondering. And It’s like you expect them to saunter off on their two legs. I’ve talked to some locals and I don’t think they feel the same way I do..as they are very used to them & groundhogs tend to get into gardens, etc. I have a cat that poops in my garden, obviously I don’t hold it against the species. :P I love all creatures. most. We were up close to a groundhog yesterday and he was eating dandelions WHOLE, in one gulp..it was incredible.
(Hope all is well with everyone!!! Still out of the loop.so BUSY!!)
