Are prairie dogs popping up in your thoughts often? The image of a prairie dog showing up in your thoughts means that bad times are over and the good news are there.

The symbolism of a prairie dog appearing in your thoughts is:

  • Swiftness.
  • Industrious.
  • Constructive.
  • Preparedness.
  • Playful.
  • Life.
  • Enjoyment.
  • Positive.
  • Community.
  • Aggression.
  • Sociable.
  • Defensive.

The prairie dog is from the same species of animals as the squirrel. Squirrels have longer tails and live on trees whereas the prairie dogs have shorter tails and they live underground. They live in huge communities in burrows inside the earth spread over hundreds of square kilometers. Sometimes this network of burrows can be spread over thousands of square kilometers as well.

The prairie dog has large solemn eyes which help it to negotiate the dark maze of tunnels of the network. The eyes of the prairie dog are symbolic for you in the sense that you are being told to see everything in an overall perspective and not a narrow one.

This symbolizes that you should be cheerful while you go about your jobs when everything is going well, for you never know when things will change for the worse. The symbol of the prairie dog teaches you to take things in your stride and not to falter in your step. It tells you that a time of peace and well-being have arrived and you should take full advantage of it.

The symbolism of the prairie dog teaches you that your outlook about life should always be positive. Only then the people around you will feel the impact of this positive outlook and reciprocate to you in the same way.

The prairie dog is fiercely defensive of its territory and is very aggressive in protecting its family and home. This symbolic meaning means that your family and home is very sacred to you and they should be protected with all the might you have.

The prairie dog mainly eats grass and sometimes insects too. Their droppings act as fertilizers and their burrows help in avoiding run-offs or floods during the rains. Thus their constructions help to keep the water-line at a good level. This symbolism tells you to work in a constructive way so that your work not only benefits you but also others.

The prairie dog is very social animal and communicates very well with its family and other prairie dogs in the community. It teaches you to be social just like it is and take good care of your family and friends with all the means you have at your disposal.
