Okay. This isn’t breaking news by any stretch, but there’s something about a bunch of pictures of a squirrel in a dress that, to me, transcends issues of “timeliness” and “relevance.”

So in the 1940s a D.C. woman adopted a baby squirrel, named him Tommy Tucker, and created 30 “specially made costumes” for him. Lucky for us, Life Magazine did a story on Tommy, complete with photos.

You really have to spend the minute it takes to view these. They’re like William Wegman’s Weimaraner photos, but more emotionally affecting.
