Showing Our Appreciation

Somehow, it’s so appropriate that today is squirrel appreciation day. I’m not sure why, but it is. This is a holiday I can wrap my brain around!

Evil Squirrel's Nest

Woohoo!  It's our day!!!!  OUR DAY!!!!!! Woohoo! It’s our day!!!! Just for us!!!

For the first time since I started the feature in the Fall of 2012, my weekly Saturday Squirrel post coincides with the biggest sciurine holiday of them all, National Squirrel sqturday squirrel logoAppreciation Day!  Celebrated every January 21st since 2001, it is a time for reflecting on the many positive qualities squirrels bring to our lives.  It is a time to love the species rather than curse its existence.  It is a time to celebrate the happiness and joy that we humans can get from these very special arboreal critters that can be found almost everywhere on earth!

The Nest will honor this most glorious occasion by recalling some of our favorite Saturday Squirrels from the past, so you can get to appreciate their beauty and humor one more time!  And we may as well start with the squirrel who appears in every Saturday post…

    No one appreciates squirrels more than Dusty T. Dog. The appreciation is NOT mutual, however. 🙂

      Funny you should mention that. Both Bonnie and Gibbs are quite passionate in their appreciation, but oddly, the squirrels are not nearly as enthusiastic. I can’t understand it. Maybe it’s a failure to communicate!

      Yeah, alas, but dogs and squirrels have a relationship that is not entirely healthy. Or happy. Or safe for the squirrels.
