Three little toads were swimming around in the pool this morning. The storm last night brought them out of the mud. After fishing them out of the water, I shooed them away so that Brandi wouldn't find them. She has flattened more than a few little toads. I always worry she will get one of the poisonous river toads, but so far, she has only found the little spade foot toads. She has turned out to be quite a little huntress. Birds, toads, lizards, she catches them all. And I am the one that has to clean up after her.
