Never mess with a Canadian beaver.
Canadians are very passionate about their beavers.
Just ask some of our Canadian Blog House readers.
We heard some of you loud and clear when we hinted that our beaver was getting a makeover.
” I hope you aren’t getting rid of your beaver!” some of you said in comments and private messages.
I must admit, while planning changes to Canadian Blog House, I had decided I was going to retire the beaver. That cute beaver had served us well but, after almost five years, it was time for a change.
Time to freshen things up a little.
We wanted a whole new look and feel to the blog, a new tagline, and a new logo.
And while our intention was for an updated look, without a Canadian beaver, it soon became apparent that it
woodent wouldn’t be Canadian Blog House without a Canadian beaver.
But it was still time to retire the beaver that has been with us since the blog was started. A new blog look needed a new Canadian beaver.
Now, our new beaver needs a name. Or so I think so. He’s just too cute not to have a name!
And so, I want to have a little fun with this, and I need your help.
I need you to come up with a fabulous name for this eager Canadian beaver!
So put your thinking caps on!
This beaver needs a name that is “uniquely Canadian“.
And no…as much as I love that red-headed British prince…we are not naming our Canadian beaver Prince Harry, lol.
