me: LOOK WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL.
Victor: WTF. I’m on a conference call.
me: I’m thinking of calling her Daenerys TAILgaryen. Because she has a tail.
Victor: That’s terrible.
me: Marmot of Dragons.
Victor: I’m literally working here.
me: FURst of her name.
me: I can’t come up with a better Game of Thrones squirrel pun. It’s nuts.
me: I’m so sorry. I walnut do it again.

That is perfect. You must always refer to her by her full, majestic name.
LOOK HOW HAPPY SHE IS!!!
I can say no more.
Whatever her name ends up being, she looks very happy to be getting puppy kisses… 🙂
If you manage to find her some dragons to ride, you will be my forever hero – but don’t light her on fire…I’m not sure, but I think that might turn out badly.
She smiles because she knows she’s found the best possible home… and because you’re annoying Victor. We all smile when you annoy Victor.
Dorothy Barker looks so confused!
I dunno. She kinda looks like she’s happily giving birth to an avocado…
That is amazing and Dorothy thinks so too! Now if there is just a stuffed flying squirrel out there somewhere….
Your puns are a thing of beauty.
I’d get mad about the terrible puns, but there’s no point in dragon you about it.
I knew it’d be taxidermy. She’s magnificent,, Jenny.
That last pic with Dorothy Barker needs to be the cover of your next book. (I have the right dog, yes? If not, I’m sorry!).
Dorothy Barker is thinking, “I could chew on this!”
OMG you are something else! LOL!
Does the squirrel have three heads?
I am really bad at puns and am envious of your skillz.
House motto: Fire and Nuts.
Oh wait. She’s the leader of the Unsquirrellied.
(SO MANY HIGH FIVES. ~ Jenny)
THE EGG, OMFG.
I’m trying to think of a better pun but I got nuttin’.
She looks like someone in the Disney version of Robin Hood.
Now you’ve distracted the dog.
Wait, is this what you were supposed to be getting instead of the penises??
It’s impossible to top these, I rodent even try. ;o)
That is by far the happiest dead squirrel I have ever seen. I think it’s because she loves her name so much.
She’s got quite the rack… what about Dolly Pardon my Pecans?
Dorothy is giving her a kiss. It’s the best thing I’ve ever seen.
This is amazing! Congrats on the new addition! 😀
Put her on a lazy susan & call her Squirreling Dervish.
Did Dorothy Barker growl at your newest family member?
(A little. She’s intimidated by royal squirrels. ~ Jenny)
I want to open your mail, it’s way better than what comes in mine. Also, she’s a looker and I’m smitten. And, is she busty? Some girls have all the luck.
Dorothy Barker is duly impressed, I see.
She’s very cheery. Did she come with the wig and apparel, or did you add that? Either way, she’s quite elegant.
(She came full-Khaleesi. ~ Jenny)
Baaaah haaaa haaaa haaaa! She looks so happy to be there too. I love it!
If she was alive, I have a feeling her and Dorothy Barker would be dating.
That’s one happy rodent! And she’s stacked too!
You are the best Jenny. You are the best. This has been your funniest post for some time.
Daenarys is approved of by Dorothy and by me!!
That is the cutest dead squirrel that I have ever seen! I was never a fan of taxidermy until I discovered you, Jenny!
SQUIRREL, you really got me now (to the beat of the Van Halen song) #lovesquirrels
Well, this just made my day.
Song of Mice and Fire. Sorry, but that smile looks extremely conspiratorial. You took that squirrel out of the box and she was all ‘yeah, let’s go annoy Victor, we totally got this. I was made for this.’
I’m going to hell. Before I read the comments I thought someone had sent you a squirrel version of the Virgin Mary……
You were PINE-ing for her, weren’t you?
I walnut do it again. I’m dead. Complete belly laugh
Last pic featuring Khal Doggo.
Introducing: Daenerys Squirrellborn, of the House Tailgaryn, First of Her Name, the UnTrapped, Queen of the Acorns and the First Squirrels, Squirleesi of the Great OakTree, Breaker of Nuts, and the Mother of Dragonflys (because why the hell not)?
Just don’t cut yourself when you take her off the mount to put her on her dragon. 😉
LOL Jennifer a
People send you the best things!!
Dorothy’s expression is priceless!
I named my squirrel nemesis Squeaky Fromme, but she had no other cute nicknames because she was just plain evil. I’ve never seen a squirrel with a white chest–where I live they’re all monochrome!
WEA-sel see how this turns out. You MUST-elid us know what name you choose. I’m going with weasel family here because she doesn’t have big incisors. But she could be a rodent. Let me know if I am out of order here.
Why does that squirrel look so happy? I’ve seen happy squirrels all the time but none of them were smiling!
Game of Cones
Daenerys Tailgaryen, Marmot of Dragons. This is the best thing I’ve seen all year! Now if I only had your facility with puns, I would come up with a name for Missandei because she is never far from her beloved leader of the Unsquirreled.
So, if you’re feeling up to a trip to Austin, the O Henry PunOff is next month. Just sayin’.
Perhaps an actual bearded dragon may be acceptable to her majesty? If fur chance you find one.
Ohhh, that little side smirk. ❤️ https://possumscatsthingsgnawingatme.wordpress.com/2018/04/09/how-cool-was-my-day/
All hail Daenerys Tailgaryen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Mother of Dragons, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains.
Watch the beginning of Dinner With Schmucks. Think of all the possibilities!
She’s cute. But I think it’s a bit weird that she had tiny,squirrel boobies.
To be a fly on the wall at your house Jenny, lol! I love your stories. I have to consult you for names from now on. You
come up with the best ones😁
All of those made me laugh and my husband smirked, too!! (Trust me, a smirk is a great sign.)
Can I just give you the responsibility of naming everything I ever have to name?!
Oh, Dorothy Barker luffs her! As long as Daenerys doesn’t hurl a dragon at her (I’m behind, I admit it).
That is awesome. You can’t make that kind of stuff up.
I’m officially declaring you me curtsying The Queen of Pun. (Seriously. I could not have done better.)
I was having a bad day and I’m okay now. I really didn’t realize puns had that power.
Daheiress or hairess Treeborn.
Omg the smile on her face is amazing. I just adopted a black kitten named Rutherford. I named him Sir Rutherford the first but he needs a last name. Tribe please help. If you want to see a pic first his Instagram is Sir_Rutherford_thecat
I’m not a watcher of Game of Thrones (or most of the other currently popular series’). That being said, my first reaction to seeing your squirrel’s costume was first to wonder if if was supposed to be Mother Theresa. Then, I thought, “Heavens no! What ‘s the matter with me? It must be Marie Antoinette.” I’m old, and I really obviously need to keep up.
I hope Victor knows how lucky he is to have you. This is perfection!
You say she came in the mail, but she looks as though she might have just walked right up and knocked on the door…
(I apologize for this comment containing no puns…)
SHE LOOKS SO PLEASED.
Excellent funny post. The Queen of puns on a Tuesday morning
Game of Nuts. I think you just need dragons. Possibly stuffed iguanas. They sound like excellent May Day presents.
Ms. Emily Tootsalot, Empress of the One Cheek Sneak
Odenna Squirrel? I mean, she did engineer the downfall of everyone’s least favorite character.
Thank you for making my dreary day brighter!!
SQUIRREL RUN BARTERTOWN!
This squirrel looks happier than I am right now. It looks so danged chipper. And my name choice is… Vhaenla Squirrenaeris.
Some black hair dye & some strap-on wings and Dorothy Barker could be transformed into Drogon Barker.
I love the hair. And your husband.
OMG that face!
Would someone please make tiny clothing for my one and only stuffed critter? I named him Levi years ago (pun deficient, I know) but I’m thinking if he had a badass pair of 90s mom jeans…
Crap…there’s no way to add a picture here. Boo.
i kind of want to see a lil baby dragon hatch from that tiny stone 😀
Thank you for the laugh this morning. I am in london for work and my anxiety is through the roof – travel and introversion are a difficult mix. So thanks for being you and making me smile 🙂
It’s astonishing how comforting that stuffed squirrel’s face is
Oh god! I love her, and the GoT puns. I’m actually surprised at how not-terrifying she looks.
I love this so much.
Beautiful! Your cleverness knows no bounds…or bondage. Whatever, that’s a hoot.
Okay. For the nerds. Squirrels are from the family ‘Sciuridae’.
Sooo….take a deep breath…..’Sciuridaenarys Tailgaryon’. Nerd pun for the win, but a bit too much of a mouthful for everyday use.
Or for cuteness, I loved Beatrix Potter as a kid so simply ‘Mother of Nutkins’ will do.
Game of Acorns?
Victor must love having such acorn-y life. Pe-CAN you be my bestest friend? Because you are nuts in all the best ways.
Anyway, I gotta go – cashew later!
This is the first post I’ve ever read on your blog and now I’m staying forever. Furever. Whatever.
Love the dog smelling her over!! I’m crying!
You are now my new favourite blog person. I have been trying to win a stuffed squirrel all week on ebay. I thought I was the only one with a squirrel obsession!
It’s impossible to top these, I rodent even try.
