a few weeks ago i was out running around new jersey.  i was running around the hotel which is in this industrial area.  the industrial areas in nj are a little better than most places, because they have lots of trees and grass around them.  i was running in this one area that looked like a park, lots of grass, a little pond these really nice trees…and these funny little animals.  at first i thought they were prairie dogs, or beavers… i had to wait to see its tail, then i ruled out beaver.  i couldn’t figure out what it was, and to be honest, i don’t think very well when i run…so i just left it as a really fat prairie dog.


yesterday, my friend/coworker told me that he was out running around the hotel, and saw the same fat out of shape prairie dogs….and they were in fact ground hogs!
