We’ve been having a very nice summer this year. Unfortunately, that also means that we have an abundance of mosquitos…damned birds of prey. I hate those little buggers.
But it also means that we have a lot of frogs as well. I can usually find three or four of them a day. Like this little guy for instance…
My dog likes to patrol around the house when darkness falls. One night, I noticed some odd behavior…er…odder than normal anyway, and I went outside to check things out.
The frogs are usually smart and stay out of grabbing distance of the dog. Not this night. Dog must have been ‘investigating’ the frog/toad for a while as he kept licking his lips. Apparently, he does not like the taste of frogs piss. *snort* I was going to rescue the poor creature when I noticed the oddest thing. The dog would wait for the frog to jump, then hurry back over, give it a sniff, then piss on it.
But the really hilarious thing was he would always miss. I watched him do the same ritual four times. I think the dog was getting cranky that he couldn’t hit the target. lol Best pissing match ever! I would have to say the frog won, since the dog never presented me with the corpse of the little beastie the next day. :lol:
