It’s been almost 4 weeks since I got back to my home.
I’ve looked for My Furry Friend, FRED, everywhere in my backyard
but he is nowhere to be found.
For those of you who don’t know Fred, he is a chipmunk.
He the inspiration of this poem …
Fred, the chipmunk.
My furry backyard friend.
Makes squeaky chirpy blend.
Love to chase him but
he moves so quick.
Fred can run so slick.
Fred digs a hole
for his winter home.
Collects nuts and berries
to keep for his winter sleep.
He is also the inspiration of Sugar’s Furry Friend book written by mom.
By now, he should be around.
I know the weather has been odd lately and might have confused FRED.
I’ve been sitting where Fred usually sits.
Hoping my scent helps out to let him know I’m back.
Every day, I keep on Woof! Woof! to my mom to let me out as I just want to hang out on the patio. She finally decided to leave the sliding door open … and let me decide to come in when I’m done searching for Fred.
I do admit that I’ve been mischievous each time I go out on the patio.
I’m just simply searching for My Furry Friend, Fred.
One reason mom decided to place my bed by the sliding door overlooking the patio.
Keeping an eye on Fred’s appearance.
We had multiple orders of Sugar’s Furry Friend book and decided to do additional re-prints.
Thus, we are giving away 4 copies of Sugar’s Furry Friend book.

I hope you see Fred soon too Sugar. I’m sure he’ll show up very soon.
Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. 🙂
Ok, I never heard about Fred the chipmunk, but do you know that I have Fred the squirrel that comes to visit me in my window almost every day! I love chippers but we don’t have any, I have to go to Gramma’s or my cousin Lena’s house to see them but Fred is my squirrel. At one point he started coming with his friend so I named his friend Ralph. Do you have a Ralph too? I actually have 2 posts about Fred.
Holly @ A Pet's Life says
I hope Fred makes an appearance soon! You are so patient to wait for him – I’m sure he is excited to see you again too!

I feel so bad for you buddy, I’m sure Fred would be back as soon as he knows you’re there – Have you sent him a pee mail? I leave them all over the neighborhood when I’ve got something important to communicate! 🙂
Good luck in finding him,
Your pal Snoopy 🙂

I hadn’t heard about Fred the chipmunk, I think it would be a pretty cool book to read! And, I hope your buddy comes back soon, I’m sure the weather has him a little confused.
I hope furry Fred shows up. He probably went back into hibernation with this crazy weather.
Mitch and Molly says
Our chippers are slow to appear too, Sugar. Maybe they’re waiting for warmer weather before they make their appearance?!
Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning says

We hope you find Fred soon! In the meantime, we could send an annoying squirrel named Chippy…..
Here’s to Fred’s reappearance! Though, if Fred is related to that lying scum of a groundhog, Puxatawney Phil, he may have been lynched last month. Just sayin’.

Dachshund Nola says
Hope Fred returns soon!
Oh Sugar, of course Fred will come back to see you! He probally just doesn’t know your back yet. Be patient, the wacky weather probally is to blame.
Wow, I’m so sorry you are missing your furiend! Maybe he is still snoozing in a nice tree nest until it warms up. I love my copy of your book and I’ll get this current giveaway added to the BCCalendar.
Grr and Woof,
Hello Sugar. I wish I had a FRED. All eyes got is some tree rats. Maybe FRED went on a vacation to visit some of his relatives. I’m sure he will be back soon. I would loves to get a copy of your Mum’s book. I don’t read too good yet (as I’m only 1) … so my mum reads to me.
I hopes I win.
