According to Buddha

True friendship consists in being mutually useful in offering one’s friend good cheer in distress, sympathy in sorrow, advice in trouble, and material help in times of real need. Friendship consists in rejoicing in the good fortune of one’s friends and in sympathizing with them in adversity. One who has given his friendship to another gladly foregoes selfish pleasures or self-interest for the sake of his friend’s happiness, without consciousness of loss or sacrifice, and without counting the cost.

muskrat susie, muskrat sam
do the jitterbug out in muskrat land
and they shimmy
and sammy’s so skinny
and they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed
singin’ and jingin’ the jango
floatin’ like the heavens above
it looks like muskrat love

muskrats in Last Mountain Lake, Town of Regina Beach, Southern Saskatchewan ~ November 2016

  1. Good friends are there through thick and thin. Wonderful photos of the muskrat home. Man another song I have not heard in years. Have fun in Regina.

  2. great photos and great toning! weren’t they scared of you standing above them?

    • thanks Inge…and no i was lying down and quiet…they were so cute…also rather rat like…but cute to see them together and swimming 😀 have a fun day ~ hugs and ❤

  3. Did you know rats are currently being studied in labs for their compasion. They will risk themselves for fellow rats. The photos are enticing.

    • no i didn’t Cindy…these are baby muskrats…and their animal totem would say they are known as “Adaptability, Ability to swim through emotional waters to return home, Understands value to survival of interspecies cooperation, Ability to reuse what others discard.”…amazing little critters…i also believe that animals teach us compassion…compose a fun day ~ smiles hedy

  4. I’ve never seen a muskrat before. You were fortunate to get these images, Hedy. I hope the week is going well for you. Cheers!

    • I’ve only seen them swimming but on the dock where the fishing people were…a man told look baby beavers…but then another said no they are muskrats 🤓 and yes they are baby muskrats waiting for fish and fish bait…I thought they were so cute and so fun to watch their activity…happy day you too Chris! ☺️

  5. OMG. I so LOVE them.

  6. Love those muskrats! And the way you captured them.

  7. I like seeing their nest, it’s an unusual glimpse into these cute little animals lives.
    Have a fabulous weekend, Hedy. 🙂

    • yes as a urban being i learned a little more about the muskrat and their lodges…when i saw this i just thought cool how thy used a human-made dock…i have no idea if the little ones stay there over the winter…apparently they usually breed during winter and females can have ten young ones…after two weeks they are able to swim but if the lodge is too crowded, they’ll drive the young ones away sometimes they kill and eat them…so i wondered if these 4 were abandoned…i could have watched them for hours they are so sweet to seeing swimming and cleaning each other was cute in a rat like way…yes it’s sunday hooray another peaceful day…sending you joy Genie! 😀
