Wally the squirrel captured all our hearts when the world watched him try to bury a nut (not a euphemism) in a dog’s fur. But there’s more to him that than that! For example, Wally also fucks around at home, eats crappy carbs, and yawns. SQUIRRELS! THEY’RE JUST LIKE US.
Of course you are already familiar with Wally, either because you use Facebook (where the above video was shared a zillion times) or because you watch the MTV show Ridiculousness, where that same video was broadcast to whomever still watches MTV (“My DVR thought it was Catfish!” Nice try, champ).
Shannon Apple, the guardian of both Wally the squirrel and his dog pal, Jax is clearly stunned by the millions of views the delightful(!) video of Wally attempting to hide a nut in Jax’s fur has garnered. But that’s not the first time Wally was caught on tape being totally fucking adorable.
For example, here Wally is stealing some Teddy Grahams last September:
Blair Witch style, with a couple turtles (shot yesterday, because the public always needs more! It’s a tough gig, Wally.):
Hiding Cheez-Its (my god, between those and the Teddy Grahams, the Apples are my kind of carb clan) in September 2013:
Really showing off his tail in November, 2012:
And here he is, at five weeks old in August 2012, yawning:
There are SO MANY THINGS I want to ask about the Apple household, besides how Shannon has Teddy Grahams and Cheez-Its in the house but still manages to look lovely in her twitter profile photo. Like, what’s with having a squirrel as a pet? In addition to what looks like several birds, turtles, and at least one dog? And, also, can I come over?
