The original CHIP Whisperer...

Last month I posted a 30-second video of Amanda feeding and petting our little Chip... (one of them anyhow!)


Clearly the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.


Her grampa (my dad) also has a soft spot for all of God's little creatures...


When dad was here for lunch a couple of weeks ago I suggested we eat out on the deck (it was before the terrible heat wave hit!)


It wasn't long before Chip decided to join us, much to dad's delight!

What can I say? It's in the genes!
Now be sure and hop over to see Cindy, My Romantic Home, for more Show & Tell Friday!

Oh Donna Sweetie...
How sweet your Daddy looks feeding that little chipmunk. His little cheeks are so full I don't know how he could have possibly held another nut, but he must have loved your sweet Daddy.

Precious photos. So precious. Thank you for sharing with me today. Have a gorgeous day sweetie.

Country hugs..>Sherry

Your Dad has the sweetest face, Donna! I can just tell what a gentle man he is. Chips knows an animal lover when he sees one. I love this post.

Love that last photo of your dad. Pure joy on his face. So sweet!
Chip is one lucky chipmunk. He gets so much attention from your family.

Now I know why you are such an animal lover. You get it from your dad. And I get my love of animals from my mom.

Oh, how adorable. I love to see the soft side of a man with creatures.

Carolynn said...

Oh my goodness. Check out the bulging cheeks on that little fellow (the chipmunk, not your Dad). What a blessing to have made friends with a woodland creature, especially one so adorable.

I swung by for a peek from A New England Life.

Blessings,
Carolynn
