  1. Dave,
    Stay in our burrow and keep sleeping this year! We already know it is going to be an early spring because you aren’t going to see anything out there today especially your shadow!

  2. Please predict an early spring! We are sick of the snow and cold! Have a cookie for us.

  3. Happy belated Easter and Happy early Spring to Dunkirk Dave and his family. Your early spring prediction was right on target
    for the Adirondacks this year! Yeah!! We are at least 2-3 weeks early! I hope the Easter bunny was very good to you and that you are enjoying this wonderful spring weather!

    All our love from Sheila and critters.

    Thrilled with your early spring prediction. We are freezing in Tampa Bay and need a warm-weather prognostication! Thanks from a very special Florida friend. Barbara

  5. My friend is from Punxsutawney and all this time I’ve heard about Gobbler’s Knob and the all-famous Phil, I forgot to mention to said friend that in Dunkirk we have our own prognosticator, Dave.

    Also, Mirror Images is a fine service. Woohoo.

    Finally, preview for Sunday: Polamalu predicts:

  6. Dear Dave,

    You have cute babies. Happy Groundhog’s Day! We are sorry you saw your shadow. We are tired of the cold weather. Stay Warm!

  7. Dave,
    Thanks again for your forecast. Shucks,…there goes the good skiing. I’m not insinuating anything but I hope to never be reading headlines in the paper like, “Local woodchuck accepts boodle of carrot cake to look the other way.” I know you wouldn’t do that. Right? Are you absolutely sure you put your contacts in this morning before you went out?
    Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to live with it. Thanks anyways.
    Peace and fresh green grass,

  8. Phil WHO??? We’re going with YOU Dave! You’re the best! C’mon Spring! Thanks for cheering us up! P.S. We’re going to be coming to Dunkirk this June…..any chance we could stop by for a visit?

  9. HAPPY GROUNDHOG’S DAY! I knew Dunkirk Dave would predict any early Spring because that is what New Yorkers
    are hoping for! He was correct last year and I know he will
    be right this year too!

    Also, a very belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    You are always thought of and loved here on the Mountain of Bleecker in Fulton County, NY. All the Bleecker woodchucks
    give their love to you and your woodchuck family.

    I also want to compliment Bob Will and Bill Verge on their endless dedicated years of work with the woodchucks of NY State.

    All my love to all of you! Sheila and Bleecker critters

  10. Way to go Dave. Thanks for the good prediction. You and your family are looking great. Stay warm and look for that early spring grass.

  11. DD:
    Love the prediction – but unable to get the audio with Safari browser. May try another browser as I see others heard Dunkirk Dave earlier today. Thanks for the educational website and great info.

  12. I love spring because you can play any thing even hide and seek.
    so dave youre asome me and you now this man

  13. Our class, form Williamsville, NY, enjoyed seeing the photos and videos. We had never heard a groundhog before! Thanks so much.

  14. Hi Dave, Sent a message to you through the contact section. We are rehabilitating a very ill little female groundhog Never realized what endearing and charming personalities these little critters have. She is a delight to be nursing back to health and we hope she responds to the antibiotics and gets better. Will keep you posted!

  15. Hi Dave,

    You are adorable! I just started a blog to share photos and stories about several groundhogs living on my property. Oops, I mean whose property I am living on. :) I have your website link on my blog. Great website – I have so much to learn about you sweeties!

  16. Hello from Bemus Point! I am 7 years old and in the First Grade at Bemus Point Elementary. I think you are cool. We are all hoping for spring! I was wondering where you live, so I looked you up on the internet! I enjoyed your pictures. Thanks!

  17. Dunkirk Dave, how can I keep groundhogs out of my garden this spring? Do I have to dig a deep trench and bury a fence underground? I don’t want to hurt your kind, but you keep eating my vegetables. Should I setup an open garden for you to eat from?

  18. Hi Dave, I always mention you when people forget NY has its own weather hog! I love you Dave! I just stopped in to see what you had to say on Groundhog Day. Thanks for stepping out in the cold for us. Bye!
    Yours truly, Beth

    Your friend, Greta

  21. Dunkirk Dave talks to Bob? So sweet.
    They want a low swing put up and he wants to buy Bob a present someday.
    AND…the last thing he said was to tell everyone he and his family loves you very much…they would like to go Disney World someday. Just to enjoy the grass and see my familys have fun.
    That was what Wonderful Dunkirk Dave had to say.
    Love to All!

    I am soooo glad you predicted an early spring especially
    with the brutual early winter this year! I love this website,
    I love Dunkirk Dave with all my heart and I love his large
    woodchuck family.

    I want to THANK Bob and Bill for all the work they do for
    woodchucks in New York State! God bless the both of you!

    All my love and blessings, Sheila
