Bob, you keep enticing Otis with this little Cutie.....can't you at least leave him a phone number here? E-mail address? PO Box number? GPS location? Something?

Best Regards!

Rupert, sorry to tell Otis, but Dolly is with child, probably 4 of them, and recently married her love since childhood and live in a new underground tunnel in Casa Grande, AZ.

Tess, they are built for burrowing and traveling through their tunnels they make. Larger ears would get in the way I think. thanks for looking. Bob
