Ramblings

We are suffering through very hot weather. the computer room is the hottest room in the house and mom has not been spending too much time in it. We don’t want to go out for walks during the day and the bufo toads are all over the place at night. They are extremely dangerous to dogs as the emit a poisonous venom when they spray after being approached. Mom has had friends lose their dogs to this and she is spastic when we walk at night.
The indestructible toy is still in one piece. It is almost two weeks and Shelby has been shaking it violently. It looks the same as the first day. This might be a worthwhile toy. If three Scotties have not dismembered it yet, it might be a good value. We will keep you apprised.
Sophie had her first taste of mango today. It was a big hit. The biggies have been having it for years and they really love it. The trees are abundant and I will just wait to see how her stomach reacts to the new addition. Scotties have been known to have problems with new foods and it is almost time to take Sophie off of puppy food.009006

    Oh great, something else to add to the list of things that Mom can worry about killing me. Toads. I think she should worry more about me dying of hunger when she doesn’t come home until 6:30 at night. Or cats. Cats are scary. At least most cats. No offense to the nice cats who read my blog and are my friends. So glad your new toy is holding up. (You all should probably try harder, BOL!)

      Not all toads. Bufos are poisonous. Check them out on Goggle to see what they look like. We have them here in South Florida. I’m not usre what else they can be found. The guys have never met any cats. They lead a sheltered life.

      They might be indigenous to South Florida. A neighbor lost two Yorkies to them in a matter of minutes. Friends with bigger dogs stand a chance in getting the poison out of the dogs’ mouth.

      They are only a problem at night. I don’t think that I have ever seen them during the day. We have had thunder,but no rain today. Sid is in hiding.

    You all are so brave to live with poisonous toads in the area!! I don’t think my mom would keep sane with that peril added to her already long list of “things that could hurt me” (or worse than hurt). Guess she’d dress me up in a bio-hazard suit for walks! Snort!! Stay safe down there, please!? 🙂

      Your mom sounds just like me. You should feel blessed to have a caring mom. I take the dogs out in two shifts. Sophie goes alone. I carry a flash light and try to keep her close. The biggies go out together. The flash light is present at all times. We do not go far. Thanks for joining us.

      The dogs have got to go potty at night. It is the only walk in the dark. There is a flashlight present and we go in two shifts. It is impossible to walk Sophie with the others and we stay in front of the house with all of the outside lights blazing.

    Kismet, you always get the last word, sweet girl! The frogs do sound so very dangerous and we bet they are very stealth. Fingers crossed that you stay out of harm’s way. Keep us posted about Mango…that might be nice for Sky Man. Your beat wave sounds miz. Ours comes next week, so we will be walking early am and evening. Please stay safe and hydrated!

      There were no stomach upsets with the mango. The biggies have been getting it for years. I don’t know why I was worried about Sophie. She has been many unusual things and has not suffered. We stay close to the house. The outside lights are on and a flashlight is in my hand.
