The Tiger Roars

By
Title Insurance with First American Title

I was in one of my favorite little towns in the Pacific Northwest not long ago, Gig Harbor. I always enjoy my visits here. This day I was on a friendly reconnaissance mission in old downtown down by the waterfront. We were scouting out locations on Harborview Drive for my Mobilecomcamp class.

We stopped at several of the local small businesses along the way and our last stop before taking a lunch break was Wild Birds Unlimited. Out front they have a wonderful menagerie of yard ornaments, bird baths, and yard art etc., and inside the store they have all kinds of pet and wild bird supplies, (food for squirrels too!), and a fun little gift shop.

I totally cracked up when I discovered this 3d cardboard Tiger card... What a cool idea! I couldn't resist and had to put this little video together... Enjoy!

Rene- I love stores like this!  We have a new addition to our yard and this sounds like just the place to buy squirrel food as well as a feeder!

Thanks for sharing this Rene, my dog Jack heard the video and jumped up from under my desk to see what was happening as soon as the tiger started to roar.

That's a very creative tiger, Rene.  And the sounds that go along with it, match to a tee.
