a bright-eyed and bushy tailed squirrel


New Member
Hi everyone...

Would anyone know how to say : bright-eyed and bushy tailed in french? or an equivalent to the saying?

I am in fact referring to a squirrel, and not a person :)

Merci mille fois!

    It seems as if what you're seeking involves alliteration (the repetition of beginning consonants--here, "B" for bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

    In the spirit of this alliteration, how about vif and vivace? Just a suggestion.

    (And "bright-eyed and bushy-tailed" does mean enthusiastic and friendly, as another poster replied.)
