    Prairie dogs have French accents? Who knew? I always assumed the ones around here had a western Oklahoma twang (“Now darlin’, don’t yew worry none. Ah ain’t gonna go NOplace without yew, except mebbe the OU-Texas game. What say we move this down inta the burrow?”) Maybe romance makes Frenchmen of us all.

  6. Oui, Von Zep – the formal appellation is “les chiens de la place flatte.”

  7. More prairie dogs, please. They’re such funny little beasties.

    @ Babs: Good one!

  8. I think the polar bear could take lessons from this guy. No cheesy pick-up lines needed here. Whoops! Crash! 😀

    That dramatic prairie dog never fails to slay me!

  9. In the immortal words of Jean Paul Sartre, ‘Au revoir, prairay doogs’.

    (CO’s making me channel Caddyshack today)

  10. Get a room! LOL! They are too cute!

  11. (honk!)
    Nothing is more romantic than your lover honking your nose :p

  12. And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed
    Singin and jingin the jango
    Floatin like the heavens above
    It looks like prairie dog love

  13. I assume French prairie dogs come from Prairie du Chien.

  14. I love prairie dogs. It’s my brothers nick name for me (very long story)

  15. Thank You Gizmo !!! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one with that silly song messing with my head all day !

  16. I’m rather jealous……

  17. LOL My favorite part.. okay favorite after them actually kissing LOL is the people in the back ground making kissing noises.

  18. He’s not kissing back.

  19. So sweet, I loff them!

  20. @ Babs “flatte” is ot a word in french, not even in bad french, I think you meant “plate” as in flat. Ok end of french lesson, you can go back to “La plume de ma tante”

  21. anatomically correct or twigs? subtle, ain’t ah?

    the OU-Texas game!!! yes yes. how well i remember. never went, but i do remember…

    ultimately Texas alum…

    so who knows the state of texas song?? me, me…

    texas, our texas, all hail the mighty state
    texas, our texas, ummm daaa umdaaaaaa (something)

  22. I love you more!
    No I love you more!
    No I…hey, you got something in your eye.
    And I think you have a grasshopper leg stuck in your teeth, hold on let me get that for you…
    I love you more!
    No I love you more!
    (whoops! crash!)

  23. Ok people, here is the correct french translation for prairie dog: “Chien de prairie”
    And Cute is “mignon”.

  24. Prairie dogs are notoriously publicly affectionate!

  25. BeckyMonster says:

    Can I just say “WTF” is up with the soundtrack with that clip??? Did they have a studio audience or something?

    What they really need is the “boump, chicka, wow wow” music from the 70’s. And don’t pretend like you don’t know what I mean!

  26. BeckyMonster says:

    All animals in love speak with a French accent.

  27. They also look like they’re about to waltz.

  28. Von Zeppelin says:

    Second line: “Texas, our Texas, all hail the mighty state!”
    I learned “Texas, Our Texas” as an elementary school student and Houstonian in those long ago days. Even at the time, I wondered why they picked such a stupid state song, with all the great songs about Texas. If they ever decide to change it, I nominate “All My Exes Live in Texas” by George Strait.

    My current state of residence (where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain) has, I believe, the only state song composed by Rodgers and Hammerstein.

  29. @Gigi: Eez franglais.

  30. Von Zeppelin says:

    Addendum to “Texas, Our Texas” Oops! The second line is actually:
    “Texas, our Texas, so wonderful, so great!”
    In my previous post, I was slightly befuddled by the unspeakable lameness of the lyrics, which sound like a third-rate junior high alma mater.
    (Wanders away whistling “Waltz Across Texas” by the great Ernest Tubb)

  31. “At the St. McGillicuddy Jr. High School prom, Sister Mary Margaret had her hands full making sure the couples on the dance floor kept at least six inches apart. MEANWHILE, in the parking lot behind the gym…”

  32. VON Z.. Personally I think they should all be composed by Rodgers and Hamerstein
    but I currently llive in the state with this for the state song.

    I love you, California, you’re the greatest state of all
    I love you in the winter, summer, spring, and in the fall.
    I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore,
    I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.


    I love your redwood forests – love your fields of yellow grain,
    I love your summer breezes, and I love your winter rain,
    I love you, land of flowers; land of honey, fruit and wine,
    I love you, California; you have won this heart of mine.

    Theres more versus just like the first one… Lots of them!

  33. definitely searching for head lice.

  34. Von Zeppelin says:

    Wow! I always assumed the California song was “California, Here I Come.” I see by the Wikipedia entry for this song that the tune was composed by one “Abraham Franklin Frankenstein (1873-1934), then conductor of the Orpheum Theatre Orchestra.” He pronounced it, no doubt, “Fronkensteen.”
    I see the last verse rhymes “dear to me” and “Yosemite.”
    With respect to state songs, I’d only add: “You’re doin’ fine, Oklahoma. . .”

  35. @VonZep, and I’m Eyegor. What hump?

  36. Hey, my state song is sung to the tune of O Christmas Tree/O Tannenbaum!
    However, whenever I hear OOOOOOklahoma, I immediately think of Sesame Street… anybody remember Forgetful Jones and his rendition????

    Funny little prairie dogs!

  37. Hey, some of us have a state song written by a king! (Although Rogers and Hammerstein is probably more sing-able….)

  38. bookmonstercats says:

    I can’t think of any songs about where I live – not clean ones anyway.

    Prairie dog action. How sweet. Brings back mem’ries (not with prairie dogs, I hasten to add..)

  39. No prairie dogs here this week, just fish in parking lots (Flood of 2009). But the state song, “Georgia on My Mind,” as sung by Ray Charles, is very moving.

  40. @baileysgrandmom, today is Ray Charles’s birthday!

  41. ray charles was my love…once i drove to another town at night in a sleet storm to see him perform the ‘black requiem’ (i think that was the name). i sat very near the top of the balcony inbetween two VERY portly people who were rocking back and forth with the wonderful music and so, so was i. it was wonderful…

    anyone recall when ronald reagan died? well, i do. same day as ray charles. terrible loss, the latter…

    texas our texas, how wonderful, how great??? wooo, vonzep: that is true terribleness. i think i blocked that out from elementary school in san antonio…gajjjjjjjj

  42. OldLadyGamer says:

    baileysgrandmom, “Georgia on My Mind” is the best state song, ever! And I don’t even live there. 😉

    About the smooching prairie pups – adorable!!!

  43. dang, i want somebody to come over here and we could kiss till we fall over. i really miss that…you know, knocking lamps off tables, spilling the tea…

    old age sucks in some ways…

  44. Did anyone else feel uncomfortable watching that? Lol, bunch of voyeurs, we are!

  45. Great. Even the Prairie Dogs are getting more action than me !

  46. OMG I wish I was in the middle of a prairie dog sandwich !

  47. Awwwww, cuties!!

  48. dah, Dah, MWAHHHHHHHHH!!!! (drama prairie dog style 🙂 )

  49. Mothermercury says:

    I was reading the accent like in

  50. I hear goose honkings and possibly peafowl on the soundtrack. Were the p-dawgs filmed in Winnipeg, home of more than sweet guinea pigs and not just the prize in a pirate lottery?

  51. @colleenincairns: Don’t remind me….

  52. You must remeber zis a kees is just a kees a sigh iz just a sigh
    zer fundamental theengs apply as time goes by
    Moonlight and luff zongs nevare out of date
    hearts full of passion agony and hate
    Prairie dog needs Prairie dog
    and he must have his mate
    that nobody can deny

  53. Blesssss!!! *squeaks in high pitch voice*

    Needs Barry White music. Definitely. 🙂

  54. Loving the state song tangent. I’m from ol’ Idaho, which has this ‘gem’:

    “You’ve heard of the wonders our land does possess, / It’s beautiful valleys and hills, / The majestic forests where nature abounds, / We love every nook and rill.”
    (I remember asking my choir teacher back in grade school what a rill was when we learned this, and she didn’t know. I sang “nook and cranny” once and they weren’t amused.)
    Chorus: “And here we have Idaho / Winning her way to fame. / Silver and gold in the sunlight blaze, / and romance lies in her name. / Singing, we’re singing of you, /
    Ah, proudly too, all our lives thru, we’ll go / Singing, singing of you, singing of Idaho.”
    2nd verse, worse than the first:
    “There’s truly one state in this great land of ours / Where ideals can be realized. / The pioneers made it so for you and me, / A legacy we’ll always prize.”
    (repeat chorus)
    A quick Google search reveals that this was:
    Written by McKinley Helm & Albert J. Tompkins, Composed by Sallie Hume-Douglas

    McKinley Helm. Sounds like a character out of a B-rated sci-fi novel.

  55. I live in a suburb of London called Thornton Heath, we don’t have a son, neither does the county it’s in, Surrey (as far as I know). So I have written one.

    Thornton Heath oh Thornton Heath, it’s with relief I live there
    The mighty hills the shady rills, with no Racoons or Bear there
    nor snakes or bugs but many Pubs, we haven’t got a care there
    The sea and sand, the Mountains grand,we’d worship if we had em
    but as it is, I think it tis, inhabited by madmen.

  56. Bugger we don’t have a SONG.

  57. I don’t think we have a song. But our state motto is “Colorado sucks. Go back to California and tell all your friends.” 😀

  58. Loretta Eck says:

    Per Discovery Channel doc. – this is their way of greeting, identifying
    family/extended family members, etc. by touching teeth. But it’s still

  59. Get room, er, burrow!

  60. Hon Glad- your friends and neighbors are very glad that you have honored them with this wonderful accolade. You are just one of the funniest people on the face of the Earth. A laurel and hearty handshake to you.

  61. My fiance actually sings this around me, which I thought was cute…for a while 🙂 To make it worse, there’s actually a competing state song that’s even cheesier.

    Beautiful Nebraska, peaceful prairieland,
    Laced with many rivers, and the hills of sand;
    Dark green valleys cradled in the earth,
    Rain and sunshine bring abundant birth.

    Beautiful Nebraska, as you look around,
    You will find a rainbow reaching to the ground;
    All these wonders by the Master’s hand;
    Beautiful Nebraska land.

    We are so proud of this state where we live,
    There is no place that has so much to give.

    Beautiful Nebraska, as you look around,
    You will find a rainbow reaching to the ground;
    All these wonders by the Master’s hand,
    Beautiful Nebraska land.

  62. Aww, they are so adorable! They look so much in love. Thanks for sharing these great videos on your site. Take care, A.

  63. Made me smile.
