I bought this little chap at the weekend from the Warborough car boot sale.
Lovely Hubby was in a 'buying rusty tools because they might come in useful' mood and browsed the stalls getting some real bargains (yes, I have to admit it he did well), I bought a set of three books and then spyed this little chap. Made of wood he is about 4" high, but I don't know what he is, but at just 30p I thought he could come home with me .... I like wooden things.
At first glance I thought he was a squirrel, but that notion was quickly dispelled, his tail is wrong, second guess was beaver, but no wrong tail again.
His tail is just a little stumpy furry thing curled behind him. I wondered if he was a skinny, mini groundhog. But I don't know.
Do you know?
The little owl on the kitchen shelf next to him, just looks sad and puzzled .... but then he always does!!
Edited to add -
He's one of these .... a Prairie Dog.
