A New Pet . . . Please Welcome

Froggie!!

I could tell that Maddy and Mr. Tennis were up to something recently, but I wasn't sure what they were plotting. When I got home one night last week, I thought Janie (the fish) and her little fish bowl looked different somehow. Upon closer review, I could tell there was a new guy in the house.

Froggie, the dwarf clawed frog, moved in with Miss Janie. He is a tiny little guy, but jumps all over the place and has really pepped Janie up. Janie used to barely swim and many times, I worried she was ready for her final journey down the potty. Now that Froggie is in there with her, she's busy keeping an eye on him and moving a lot more. Note to self: Stay Alert -- Mr. Tennis and Maddy are not to be trusted when it comes to pets!

I imagine that Janie is wondering who this new guy is that's moved into her place. I can relate to Mr. Tennis and Maddy getting new pets while you're not around...new fish mysteriously appear in Grace's fish tank on the weekend when I'm running errands or not home...;)

Cuuute froggie! You better watch out, one day your going to come home and Maddy and Mr. Tennis are going to have a puppy there!!

Cant say they are my favorite, but good for maddie on her new pet. We have a wash behind our house and in the spring we get tons of frogs. They are everywhere-- we drive over them, step on them and all kinds of nasty things-- yuck!! Tell maddie to keep mr. froggy close as to not get stepped on :)

How funny! It's a frog! I just knew it was going to be a cute little bichon like Larry, when I saw the title of your post.
Welcome, Froggy! Congratulations. :)
Somehow I think he'll be much easier than a puppy.

What a hoot! I agree -- they aren't to be trusted! LuLu the horse will be moving in soon!

I have another apple pie in the freezer. I think I need to make it and bring it in for you! No pie on Thanksgiving is a party foul!

Welcome Froggy!! However I do believe two people in your house have a plan in action. Don't turn your back, before you know it Larry will have a cousin.
