Norman and the Chipmunks

Some of you probably noticed that my new toy is called, "Hide a Squirrel," yet I refer to the "squirrels" as "chipmunks." The reason for this is that they look more like chipmunks than squirrels to me, and I call 'em like I see 'em.

See those stripes? Those are chipmunk stripes.

See the resemblance?



This is a toy squirrel.

This is a real squirrel.



Squirrels come in other colors than just grey, but I don't think I've seen a striped squirrel, so I'm going to continue to call my "squirrels" "chipmunks." Besides, I already have a squirrel toy, and we can't go mixing up the toy names!!

    I thought that was a chippy munk too. That toy is so cute. Those chippies and squirrels deserve to be shaken up a bit.

    That's what I thought too when I got that toy. But all I really care about is that they are great to chase around and they make the best squeaky noises!!
    Love Clover xo

    They DO look like chipmunks. Where did you find this toy? I've been wanting it for my puggies...did you get it at PetCo or PetSmart?
