Is that a Squirrel????

My mom's Aunt sent her an email, you got to see this!
As soon as she showed it to me I had to post it here, and mom agreed (really thought she would want to post it on her blog, glad she let me post it!)

The Moral of This Story is the Best Part!
Debby Cantlon, who plans to release Glen, the young squirrel, back into the wild, bottle-fed the infant squirrel after it was brought to her house.
 When Cantlon took in the tiny creature and began caring for him, she 
 found herself with an unlikely nurse's aide: her pregnant Papillion,
Mademoiselle Giselle.
 Glen was resting in a nest in a cage just days before Giselle was due 
to deliver her puppies. Cantlon and her husband watched as the dog
dragged the squirrel's cage twice to her own bedside before she gave birth.

Cantlon was concerned, yet ultimately decided to allow the squirrel out and the inter-species bonding began.

 Two days after giving birth, mama dog Giselle allowed Glen to nurse; family photos and a videotape show her encouraging him to suckle alongside her litter of five pups. Now, Glen mostly uses a bottle, but still snuggles with his 'siblings' in a mosh pit of puppies, rolling atop their bodies, and sinking in deeply for a nap.
 Glen and his new litter mates, five Papillion puppies, get along together as if they were meant to.
 Glen naps after feeding.
Glen makes himself at home with his new litter mates, nuzzling nose-to-nose for a nap after feeding.
 Send this along to brighten someone's day!
(or share)
Wouldn't it be nice if we could all get along
like Glen and the gang? 
 Keep loving everyone, even the squirrelly ones!!!!
 Wasn't that great?
I hope you liked it, and thanks mom for letting me post it here and 
thank you Aunt J for sending it to mom!
