Okay, so back in May, I had an "I know you!" moment with a toad.
We'd moved the trailer out of our yard and come across the toad and the kids were picking it up and holding it.
Got a GREAT picture of my oldest holding it.
Well, that evening, I saw it again in the laundry room, and I -recognized- it!!
I'd seen it in August a year before, in pretty much the exact same spot. And I recognized it for the white patch it has on it's back!
Back in May, it visited us for four evenings and then moved on its way. I was afraid the dogs had stepped on it, but they actually avoid it...kind of like they do the cat when he's pissy (;
Well, I saw it day before yesterday, in the morning.
Enjoying a nice soak in the dog's water dish. (lol) When I dashed off to get my camera, I'd apparently scared it off and missed the opportunity.
Well, it came back last night (:
We call it our Lucky Toad and think of it like another pet-- but one we don't have to do anything for (lol).
