    I am from Nova Scotia. For the last month I have had a groundhog living underground under my back porch. I have named him Gary. After trying the foods he is supposed to like his favourite is bread. Who doesn’t like carbs! I am really enjoying watching him. This is a great website.

    I started last year taking a vacation day each Groundhog’s Day, so after seeing Phil in PA last year, I plan on being there to see Dave. I’m impressed with his predictions. Looking forward to a great time!

    Hi Dunkirk Dave. We dream with our daughter to see you live one day… We are from Poland but people here also know you very well.

  12. Timothy says:

    I hope Dunkirk does not see is hadow next year!

  13. Hi Dunkirk Dave and Family! We are so happy that you predicted an early SPRING!! We are tired of all of this snow!
    We have a Groundhog nearby named Brant Bob. He lives in Mrs. Zeffiro’s field. He agrees with your prognostication!
    Happy Groundhog Day!

    I love you Dunkirk Dave. You are my favorite chuck. And you are the cutest of all. To me, you are the only prognosticator! You’re my favorite of all animals. XOXO

  15. Laura says:

    I used to live in Chautauqua County, so I tend to find affinity with Dunkirk Dave, even though I am now in Pennsauken, NJ. If we had a ground hog, I’d be loyal to Dave.

  16. Russ says:

    I have a groundhog living under my backyard shed. Haven’t named him yet. My next door neighbor has two apple trees next to our fence, so he is well fed and leaves the gardens alone in the hood. Two summers ago, I tried to humanely trap him, but I guess the carrot bait wasn’t tempting enough. Then I tried spreading moth balls to repel him but that failed. After reading about “Dave”, I will now embrace his presence. He is kinda cute, and I’m a pushover for cute.

  17. Kinsey says:

    Hi, my name is Kinsey. We loved your book! I hope to see Sidewinder on groundhog’s day. I hope Sidewinder is ok because of her brain injury. She is very cute!
    We have a groundhog living at our house and we feed her. She has gotten very very big!
    P.S. I am six years old.
    P.P.S, I have a caring for animals .

    We met Dunkirk Dave many years ago at Bob Will’s house when we worked at the conference grounds. Dave is the best! He has never been wrong! Way to go, Dave!

  19. L Talbot says:

  28. Hugh & Marsha says:

    We met Dunkirk Dave back in 1985 when we bought a golf cart from Dave’s keeper. We can’t remember a year when Dave was not correct. Dave truly is the best!
