DogDaz Zoo: Happy Whistle-Pig Day

02 Feb

They are such funny weather predicting creatures, these ground hogs. They have names like woodchuck, land-beaver, and whistle-pig. Our regional prognosticator is name Punxsutawney Phil. He’s known as the “Seer of Seers,” the “Prognosticator of Prognosticators” and the “Most Photographed Pennsylvanian.” People in Pennsylvania dress up in top hats and tails and have this whole big event each year to see if we are going to have an early spring or late winter. Leave it to a rodent to let us know.

      Oh spring will come to you sooner or later, whistle pig or not. Don’t worry.

    I wasn’t home to see if the groundhog that lives under our deck, Sunny is her name, came out or not. Oh, I know she will, eventually! And gobble up some garden goodies! Stay warm until spring arrives, Lorian!

      That is so cute, Vicki. We will all eventually come out when the sun shines. Spring is just around the corner
