This week's friend isn't a specific individual, it's a whole species. I don't know much about cicadas. They live in the ground? They sleep for 100 years? I do know that they make a wild buzzing noise and they shed some type of outer skeleton shell. I also know that my dog Maggie loves to eat them. Doesn't matter if they are dead or just a shell. One even flew into her mouth and buzzed around there before heading towards her stomach. The zzzzz sound is so constant that it's turned into background static. I don't even notice it anymore.
If you would like your best animal associate to be featured email me 3 pictures of them and I will do my best to try and capture their essence.
