Bouchard’s Toad Legs After Dinner Snack

Bouchard got his frog’s legs this full moon night.  Actually, they were toad’s legs.  Eeegads!  Baby and I came back from obedience practice, and by the time I let everyone out and took two minutes to myself, Bouchard had slime all over his face and the back pavers!  It was really just gross!  I don’t think it was my frog prince.  It appeared to be a juvenile Bufo Toad, those horrid creatures!  They can kill a dog with their poisonous slime.  So I threw a net over it, Bouchard’s mouth was full of foam and so was the ground.  I had to rinse his snoot out with water pronto, and keep the others away from the lump of toad.  Lump of toad got tossed into the poop bucket and thrown away.  It was a lot more traumatic than that, but I’m exhausted, so that’s the story in a nutshell.


About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
