Squirrel Appreciation What..huh??**NEWS FLASH--No School Today --YAY!!***

So I got my calendar of events for our Three Dog Bakery..they have Mutt Mixers, Puppy Playdates..all that fun stuff with lots of good food.
On their calendar they have an event..it says.. Squirrel Appreciation Day

When :Thursday, Jan 21, 2010..
For real? Do you guys know anything about this?? We have a day to appreciate them??? And our local Three Dog gives you Squirrel cookies?? Really??
I had to research this...so I found the following from The Huffington Post: SQUIRREL APPRECIATION DAY Is January 21: Are You Ready?
They have a guide on how to celebrate this day..what is the world coming to??
I also found this interesting story at the New York Times:
Enter the “Save Our Squirrels” campaign begun in 2006 to rescue Britain’s red squirrels by piquing the nation’s appetite for their marauding North American cousins. With a rallying motto of “Save a red, eat a gray!” the campaign created a market for culled squirrel meat
Appreciate them..eat them...Hmmmm
For the rest of this interesting tale...tail..click here :)
What a day...I need to go and chase a squirrel or something.
***Woke up and found out, we can all go back to bed--No School!!! Woohoo!!!***


  1. Oh Olive that is too funny!!! Mom and I had no clue there was a squirrel appreciation day. Mom said she would 'appreciate' it if they would not chew on our deck railings.
