I was mowing today and our two fur babies, Jewel, the matriarch and Libby the youngster of the duo, were digging frogs. Even in this dry weather and heat of over 100, we have frogs. Now they don't come out voluntary but I saw the fur babies really busy in the yard. So nothing doing I had to stop the mower, get off of it and go into the house to get the camera. I was hoping all the way, please don't stop doing your thing little fur babies. Well lo and behold they didn't let me down.
Now when there is a rabbit in the yard there is a LOT of action but the frogs it is mostly digging, following and then just ignoring them.
Hello to Jewel, we think she is nine and oh such a good little digger.
We have several holes like this and have to fill them up every once in a while, well more so than that. Miss Jewel will sit forever at the holes and I guess she smells them out, don't know how she knows where to dig. But dig she does.
Thought you might like a close up of the hole.
Now once the frog pops out Libby, who we think is about 6 or 7, is there at attention. She usually lets Jewel do the digging while Libby's fluffy tail just wigs and wags watching intently.
Now this is not for the faint of heart , but she isn't eating it. She grabs it ever so tenderly and then spits it out and shakes her head. This little game goes on for a while and then they get bored with it and the frog hops off going to his party or whatever he does underground. Today was a bonus, they dug up two of them.
I know you are thinking is that all Annette has got to do on a hot summer day? Probably not but just had to share on the last day of June. I do have some art stuff to share in a day or so.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in Annette's world.
