A New Pet?

You know, I’m seriously trying to cull the pet population around here, but, what can I say? I’m weak. At least this one, if we keep him (or her), was free.

Tonight I rescued Toad (a clever name, if we do say so ourselves, from one of our favorite book series Frog and Toad) from our boxer, Jake. I bought him inside – in the bucket that I used to catch him…I didn’t actually touch him – to show the kids.


Not surprisingly, they wanted to know if we could keep him. Since we have a recently vacated 10-gallon aquarium, I told them that we’d keep him and observe him for a couple of days.

Then, we caught bugs for him to eat. He was way more entertaining to watch than the tree frog we used to have. I got online to identify him. He’s an American toad and there was lots of information available on how to care for him. Josh quietly informed me that he needs a pet since his gerbil died.

We’ll see.
