Happy hump day. There is nothing quite like a cute animal video to mark the middle of the work week.
Lucky for you, this one is extra cute because it involves a plump prairie dog.
You see this couple was going on their merry way when all of a sudden they (probably) saw the cutest head pop out from the middle of the road.
Who knows how long this cute head was there for, in the hot sun and dry heat…
The encounter, of course, turned out to be a good thing because the humans eventually pulled the prairie dog out of his hole and he himself went on his merry way.
Watch the rescue, below. (The close-up of the whole thing is at the 1:19 mark).
