Night voices


While walking, we came across this pond.  My greyhounds had various reactions.  Fleur was an old hand and said "We can figure it out!

This is great!  Adventure!


"This is something new! 



Power on the other hand, was really excited and jumped up in the air from all four feet!  He said "This is something new!  Should I be afraid?  Should I jump on it?  Should I run away from it?  If I could get off this leash I could run till my excitement fades!  Let me go-go-go-go-go!"

I had not heard these voices in about 20 years.  Took me a while to decide what they were.  They do talk at night, but once the brain is aware, I heard their voices in the daytime also!

Nighttime symphony
C-r-o-o-a-a-k-k!

  1. It's one of the many interesting voices of spring, isn't it? Those are some big ones, and I imagine they make quite a symphony.

  2. Don't let the dogs get them, as they can poison them. My JR got hold of a toad and then dropped it. She then started to pant and foam at the mouth, I was getting to the stage of rushing her to the vets when she seemed to recover, but it was really horrible to watch for the few minutes she was effected.

  4. I love spring peepers! In the spring, when it starts getting warm enough to sleep with the windows open, I love hearing them sing at night. :)

  5. My guys are completely uninterested in frogs. Maybe because we have them all over our back yard.

  6. I love frogs! Our first Greyhound, Maggie, was a nervous nellie. When we first brought her home she would not go outside to go potty at night because of all the frogs. We lived out in the country and had a load of frogs. It was comical. After a week, she overcame her fear of frogs.

  7. You're so lucky! I haven't seen any frogs the whole time I've been on the road - at least I sure don't remember any. I don't think Katie would chase them, but she would probably be interested.

  8. The frog in the second to last photo is very well camoflagued! I had to look at the photo for quite a while before I could see it. We don't have much in the way of frogs around here. Although I did have one appear in the lounge room one night a few months ago. I have no idea how it got there, lol! I managed to get it outside without Frankie touching it!
