Prairie Dog Day



Prairie Dog Day.
February 2—Celebrate.


HIP! HIP! You little devil sitting out there in the sun!
What is that you’re always saying? See the little rascals run!
“Cheep, cheep, cheep—we don’t like strangers,
Cheep, cheep, cheep—this is our home.
Chip, chip, chip—now don’t you come here,
Cheep, cheep, cheep, chi, chip, cheep, chome!”

—W.L. Chittenden.
