Meet the newest member of our outdoor crew. We’re not sure if it’s a beaver, a muskrat, or a groundhog. He looks a lot like a groundhog but he keeps disappearing into the river. He first showed up Sunday afternoon when we got back from the beach. I managed to snap a couple of pics before he slipped under the fence and left. We were wondering if we’d see him again and then this morning, during our exercise time, he showed up again. I think he’s a baby because he has a very short, stumpy tail – which is one way I can tell them apart.

I’d also like to introduce one of the newest members of our indoor crew …

This is Rupert, the proprietor of our new store, Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals. We’ve been spending a lot of time trying to get his blog up and running. He’s also on Twitter, if you want to see what hedgehogs think during the day. We’d love to have you follow him and spread the word to anyone who might like stuffed animals. God knows we do!

    That would be a groundhog. Groundhogs apparantly do go into water or maybe he has burrowed a hole under the fence….

    Rupert is adorable! One of my favorite Christmas tree ornaments is 2 groundhogs snuggled up. Sigh.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such an encouraging comment!
