He is so cool!

What a wonderful picture! Buddy obviously trusts you and, yes, he does enjoy his carrots!

How neat, great shot and interesting friend. I've never seen one this close up so I'm glad he is a daily winner because he made my day! And got my vote.

Boy, it was hard to choose this week but Buddy looks so sweet. He got my vote.

Buddy gets my vote

I love all animals and this little guy is so lovable just to look at him enjoying his carrot and not being afraid. Thank you for saving buddy.

Where's the beef???

Can't help but love him.So cute&colorful.

Buddy is a cuttie and should win. I think he is adorable. Is he a buddy buddy or a wild one? He reminds me of my guys.

Buddy is adorable...It's amazing that he has decided to be your buddy. That must have taken lots of time and patience...Good for you. I love all animals...

Can Buddy come over and play?

Isn't this weight watcher's food? Good for eyesight too.

It's folks like you that make this confused world worth living in.

Such a cutie patootie!Looks like he enjoys rabbit food too. ;)
my birthday is on Groundhog Day,too.

How sweet! I love groundhogs! We had one living under our shed. She'd come out in the afternoon to eat grass. I always wondered if anyone had been able to tame one and you proved it could be done! You are fortunate to have such a cute buddy!

Hey, You lookin at me?

This carrot is worth its weight in gold and its mine!!!! All mine!!!!

I've had a couple of these "orphans" myself. not only did they eat the carrots they tried to eat the whole garden!!! make nice pets.

THESE ARE THE MOST ADORABLE PETS. I RAISED FOUR ON BOTTLES!! IT WAS SO REWARDING. THEY LIVED UNDER MY MOTHER'S MOBILE HOME, AND WE HAD A SMALL HOLE IN THE KITCHEN FLOOR AND THEY CAME IN THERE TO EAT..I'VE GOT LOTS OF PICTURES..THEY ALSO LIKE VANILLA WAFERS!!!!! THANKS FOR SAVING THIS LITTLE GUY...GOD BLESS...

This Liitle guy should be in the calendar for
Febuary.

Buddy is wild. He goes into hibernation every fall but come Springtime, he makes his way up the hill and is the first to come when called. He has two sisters,Shy Baby and Stomper and one brother called Bear. I have about 12 groundhogs that will come and eat treats everyday. I have lost a couple to old age and natures way,which is a heart break.
I have several babies every Spring to play with. I also rescued a mother and 2 babies from a terrible fate. They were rescued on different days about 2 weeks apart. 3 days later they found each other and lived out the rest of the Summer in peace. I have 100's and 100's of photos. Please see the groundhogs as a thing of beauty in nature as they are indeed special little animals.
Thanks everyone for the kind words as well.

I love this story. Everyone around here shoots groundhogs! It makes me so upset. My groundhog had 5 babies this spring, I was so thrilled but nervous because they might move into dangerous territory. I get so tired of all of the stories of how destructive they are along with the rabbits. I have flowers galore and an unfenced vegetable garden and have never had one bite taken from either! I do not use chemicals on my lawn so I think that they readily eat the grasses and weeds. The real truth is that animals (even wild ones) can sense a kind heart and that is why they don't nibble at my flowers or vegetables! But God created them and they are welcome to live in my yard eat from it if they want to.
