IT WAS A FROGGY WEEK

This week has been pretty much run of the mill.  It rained a few days, so a lot of Tippy’s time was spent napping.  We did take off the trash and drove over to drop some stuff off at the Post Office.  She always enjoys a ride, no matter where to or how far we go.

We were able to take a few walks into the neighbor’s pasture.  The most interesting wildlife we found was this little frog.  It’s a Northern Cricket Frog, so named because of the noise it makes.  They are apparently fairly abundant, but I had never seen one before.  Had it not jumped in front of me, I would have missed this one.   In the “far away” picture he is at about 2 o’clock from the buttercup.  Do you see it?  It has great camouflage.

We’re almost sure that Tippy has some Australian Shepherd in her, so she likes to herd.  I am always concerned when we go into the pasture and see the cows.  She will usually take a run toward them, growl, and move on.  I think she does it just to get a rise out of me.  The cows know she is harmless, so will usually just stand there and look at her.

The last couple of times we have seen them she just walks right on by like they aren’t there.

Cows? What cows? I don’t see any cows?

It has been hot out, when it’s not raining.  Tippy and I aren’t ready for it to be humid and over 80°F.  After our walk today, she plopped down in her favorite spot to cool off…the kitchen tile.  I was tempted to join her.

We hope you make interesting discoveries and have fun adventures in the week to come.

  1. Pretty much the same here although it has been very cold in the mornings and Benji has been very reluctant to go out in the AM. His look was a sort of “come back when the sun is up and I’ll think about it” We are cold and damp and winter “officially” begins next week. Like Tippy, Benji loves a good car ride however long or short the trip.
