This little fellow is a Pacific Chorus frog. He is very small and very brave. He's brave because The Lady Bullfrog is so much bigger than he is. And bullfrogs eat other frogs. On the menu! They will also eat mice, snakes and birds. And Pacific Chorus frogs. The reason we know he is a he is that he has been croaking his heart out looking for love.
And Abby is on Total Dog Alert about it. So is Yappy Dog in the kiddy-corner yard. Froggy starts croaking and Yappy Dog starts yapping. I'm considering tossing Abby over the fence to deal with Yappy Dog.
It's a zoo around here, I tell you!
