Cute Little Critters


Prairie-DogWhen the kids & I moved here to Colorado 18 years ago I was just enamored with these little critters.  Growing up in California (the bay area) I had never seen a “Prairie Dog” but here in Colorado they are everywhere.  The kids and I were always calling out “there’s a prairie dog”! Every open space or empty field is crawling with these little guys (open space = any piece of property without a building).  They pop out of their little piles of dirt to say hello (I’m sure they’re just looking for bugs)!  They are so cute – they remind me of sea otters with their little paws.  I realize they are probably disease infected carriers of possibly the plague but I can’t help but adore them. I drove by an open space the other day and I STILL thought to myself  “ahhh look, there’s a prairie dog”!
