N's Postcards - 28

A couple of groundhogs (that's a guess, but they look like groundhogs!) saying "xoxo Sure do miss you xoxo" From Grandma on a visit to Salt Lake City.

**Note: They are prairie dogs, not groundhogs. The difference is a couple of pounds and that groundhogs don't burrow in colonies (though they do burrow) and have longer ears and tails.**

Those are "prairie dogs". :)

We use the names interchangeably... Maybe because our prairie dogs are so big. :) But yes, it looks like you are right, since I can see their burrow, and groundhogs don't have burrows. Learn something new everyday!
