I'll bite. What is it?
Marmots do know how to enjoy life. Nothing to do but eat and sun on the rocks. My family and I just spent the last 2 weeks of June touring parks from Dinosaur National Monument to Glacier National Park. Lots of marmots to be seen laid out on the rocks.
The "marmot" in the Big Lebowski looked more like a ferret to me. Marmots, or groundhogs, are pretty smart, and can be quite friendly. I have a whole family living in my backyard, and they all recognize me. If someone else, even my wife, comes around, they scamper for their den, but they go about their business when I am working back there.
It looks like a young manbearpig to me. I am serial.
Does Nina ever stay home?
It's a hoary marmot, Marmota caligata. "Caligata" means (roughly) wearing small boots; cf the emperor Caligula (Little Boots); you can see in the photo at the link the brownish feet. They live a mellow life under the harshest of conditions, and are therefore sometime thought to be the totemic animal of law professors.
