The pups have emerged! Dan discovered our first litter yesterday and our good neighbor, Elizabeth Overholser, joined us at this exciting scene to photograph us in action. In the photo below, I am holding "my" first pup, looking like a bit of a nervous Nelly with a newborn in my hand!
More photos will surely be posted soon as we continue to weigh and mark these newly recruited members of our marmot population here at RMBL. We have already seen at least six pups and we expect to see more in days to come. Let the fun begin!
