The True Story of Bucky and Pete
Once upon a time there was a tiny baby squirrel that fell out of a tree. The little guy didn't have any hair yet and his eyes were closed. He cried and cried for his mom but she was nowhere to be found. A passerby heard him and saw that he was being quickly tromped on by little ants. She picked him up and dusted him off and called the Squirrelady.
The Squirrelady picked him up, covered him with tiny kisses from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail. She said "Little buddy, I will call you "Bucky". Let's go home and give you some sweet warm milk." From that day on, which was in the beginning of August 09, little Bucky grew and grew and became an amazing furry squirrel!
After 6 weeks went buy, a little boy was playing in the park and found a baby squirrel laying on the ground. He brought the squirrel to his grandma and asked, " Grandma, is this little squirrel ok? He's not moving. Can we bring him home? They called the Squirrelady and she went right over to check out the little squirrel. She said, "This little buddy hasn't eaten in about 4 days. He is partly here and partly in the other world. I will bring him home and have a talk with him. I will call him Pete."
So little Pete went home with the Squirrelady and she tried to feed him. He was not real interested in eating so she held him close and gave him Reiki. She sat with him and listened and finally said to him, "Pete, my little friend, if you want to return to the One Squirrel Heart, I will let you go, but I want you to know that if you stay, you will have a little brother named Bucky. And you and Bucky can grow up together and be friends forever."
Then a miracle happened. Within 36 hours, little Pete decided to stay! The next time the Squirrelady gave him milk he slurped it down with glee! From that day on, little Pete ate and grew and ate and grew some more. After he caught up in size to Bucky, the Squirrelady put them in the same nest! You can see them on You Tube if you click below:
