Thank you Paolo! Il tuo link non ha funzionato così ho bisogno del numero della foto. Che il piccino lì seduto allerta tutti i suoi amici e non in movimento. :)

Hi dianne. The one in the next picture does too. I guess they are only cute from a distance. Thank you for your visit and comments.

Gracias por su josastur muy amables comentarios. Saludos de nuevo a usted, Margot

He looks like he's about to sneeze. But I think he's cute anyway.


mardrl on September 30, 2009

He does, doesn't he? He is actually warning the other prairie dogs to get below NOW.

I've always thought that the only reason people think of them as 'cute' is because we call them 'dogs' - based on my experience, they should be called 'Prairie Rats' dave hermon

dave - Spoken like a true Colorado rancher! I think they are cute but not too photogenic! :)

Great warning shot!

Funny, I love prairie dogs and think they are so fun to watch. But here we hate pocket golfers! Guess it is different when you have to live with them & the damage they do in your fields!

he's got a look on his face like something has a grip on his nether regions.

mardrl on October 2, 2009

Lol maybe that is why he didn't move. :)

--JF** They are fun to watch but they sure create havoc on farms and ranches. We have pocket gophers too.

Ahhah looks so funny :)) Nice to know their language ;) Very good shot!

Greetings, Ritva

They are really cute when they are not creating havoc! Thank you for your comment Ritva.
