CHARLIE & THE TOAD FROGS
Last night while I was cooking dinner I looked out my kitchen window and saw Charlie pestering our resident toad that lives in the downspout drain pipe.
I told him to stop and he came in the doggie door.
I watched the toad and he hopped toward the doggie door. Waited a few seconds and hopped again and then again, toward the doggie door. I thought, "oh my gosh, is that frog coming after Charlie?". I got the camera and after the flash, the frog turned away. Whew!! It is a very large frog.
A couple of years ago, a handyman installed a larger doggie door for Charlie.
I saw Charlie sitting and staring at the doggie door. There was a frog with it's feet on the opening and staring back at Charlie.
I wonder if the light inside the house attracts the frogs. Maybe the plastic door reflects like it's water to the frog. Wonder what the frogs see that attracts them.
I don't think the frogs could push the doggie door open, so I'm not concerned about that. It's just interesting that they're so brave.
Or, maybe they ARE coming after Charlie because he won't leave them alone!!
