If you get any more, you will get it yourself. Ground hog.
3. He picked up his gun and whistled to his dog; Away to the wild woods to catch a ground hog. Ground hug.
4. Daddy returned in a hour and a half
With a great big ground hog as big as a calf. Ground hog.

In a very few minutes he had it skinned. Ground hog.

7. Old Kate was the mother of them all;
She fed them on ground hog before they could crawl. Ground hog.
