Abby & Her Prince

I was relaxing out on our back porch this afternoon, reading a great book, when I heard the puppy going after something.
After a few minutes of hearing her pawing the ground and letting little "ruffs" out, I got up to see what she was doing.

I couldn't see what she was after, but I could hear something rustling through the leaves.
Abby was bound & determined to get this thing, whatever it was.

And then, I saw it:

Poor little froggie, he was just minding his own business when he made the mistake of attracting my puppy's attention.

Well, Abby was convinced that this was her new play toy. And Abby doesn't exactly play nice. But before I butt in to save the froggie's life, I couldn't resist snapping a few photos :)

(by the way, Abby's nails aren't that long, she was stretching toward him and her claws came out like crazy!)

But then I realized what she was doing!
She was just trying to kiss him to turn him into a prince :)

Unfortunately, that didn't work out too well.

Anyways, I shooed the froggie back under our porch and told Abby not to play with him any more.

I went back to reading my book & Abby went back to tormenting the frog.

A few pages later, I fell asleep.

And woke up to see my puppy rolling in something.

Yeah. You probably just got the same picture in your head that I did:
Frog guts.

And then, as I watch, she jumps up and grabs whatever she was rolling in, up into her mouth and starts running around the yard with it.

Well, I was fully awake now and could not allow my puppy to eat a frog. SO I jumped up from my chair and yelled at her to drop it.

She must have a hearing problem because she didn't listen. Derrick heard me yelling and went to see what she had. She dropped it for him.

And much to my happiness - she had a stone.
