Is it all marmots or just this one that can stop time?

This reminds me of a conversation I often have with my dog:

*dog approaches my face*

Me: Hi.
Dog (translated from facial expressions): Wassup.
Me: Not much. You're not going to--
Dog: Lick your face? Wouldn't dream of it.
Me: Good because I'm not really in the--
Dog: Oh goodness me, no worries. It's the furthest thing from my mind.
Me: I appreciate that because I'm kind of tired of--
Me: Aw, what the--
Dog: *LICK*
Me: --hell!?
Dog: Sorry dude, it's just what I do.

The marmot has dirty whiskers. I want to clean them. I must clean them!

Wow, I should go dig my old Interrupting Marmots tour shirt out from the bottom of the drawer.

Was it a Hoary Marmot though? Or possibly a Whory Marmot (SFW)?

Sorry, I'll take my Dwarf Fortress obsession elsewhere.

BAH! How much did Go Pro pay that marmot indeed! Harrumph.

Marmots are curious little beasts. A couple of years ago, a marmot was captured in San Jose, who had apparently hitched a ride down from Yosemite in a visitor's car.

The marmot is a giant squirrel? No wonder I like them. Look at that euphoric buoyancy. Bounce, bounce, bounce up to the camera. That marmot reminds me that life is wonderful.

I want one.

I don't know. That marmot deployed more tongue than is strictly polite on first meeting.

That's a cute creature. I was expecting something like a mammot in My Singing Monsters and cursed my child for his fell influence.

That is a marmot. Yes indeedy.

It's what you get when you rub your camera with. Blueberry jam, I guess. At least no whistling. That would have been loud. They're the born whistleblowers...
