it finally happened!!!

hello every bloggie

I just wanted to say something quickly about yesterday's post. Yep I had an encounter with a nesting swan. I didn't get this close to see it hissing at me. Thankfully I had my leash attached. I actually walked right by it at first and it appeared out of nowhere. Whew.. mom was glad my leash was on. It was HUGE and monopolized the trail. We had to take an off trail way around. I didn't want to mess with this one.

Now onto more important things. IT FINALLY HAPPENED! I was walking along my usual trail. Mr. Frog decided to veer away from the pond side and right on the trail path.
See.. him. I did and before I knew it.. I had it in my mouth. I finally caught him!
Then I heard a "eeesschh nooo". The frog flung from my lips and I began to "froth'. A stream of suds (like Mango but not nearly as impressive) came dripping out. I was spitting and frothing.
Mom checked out the frog and all appendages were in tact. No blood no teeth marks. She was afraid frog guts would start spewing from me. Thankfully no... I guess I don't like the frog flavor but it still hasn't stopped me from hunting them. huh? now I'm confused.


  1. Sometimes we still khrave what we know isn't good fur us -


  2. Try adding a little Tabasco next time.

  3. Norwood, that swan is a good picture for eyewatch Friday. I put my eyewatch up a little early as a tribute to my big Sis's birthday. How did the frog taste?? Did you try the legs? I hear that people eat them sometimes.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  4. We came over from the OP Pac blog. We think that our Monty tried to eat a dead frog once!

  5. Oh my goodness, that sounds pretty exciting Norwood. I haven't caught one of those yet.

  6. How were the frogs legs, Norwood? We've heard they're the tasty part!
    Dauby would let you swim in our pond! She's a nice swan!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. Not liking something has never stopped us from hunting it.

  8. Yuck! I bet that frog was wearing some weird skin cream that made him taste funny.


    Finally you did it!!!!!
    You have tasted Mr Frog!!!!!!!
    We can't believeeeeeeee!!!!!!
    And....sometimes things we thought had a good taste...BLEAHHHHHHHHH!!!!
    No no....haven't a good taste indeed!!!!
    Do you think eating Mr Frog again Norwood???!!!!
    And that Swan looks soooooooooooo beautiful!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!!
    HAve a wonderful thursday dear friend!!!
    TOns of love and kisses!!!!
    And a special kiss to Mr Frog!!!

  10. Froggy probably trying to shoot untasty stuff so you'd drop him.Some frogs are dangerous and lizards Look out my man

  11. At least lizards don't make me foam at the mouth! Hope you've survived that traumatic least the swan didn't attack you too!
    your pal,
    p.s. sharon will be back at the shop today...yipee I get to have fancy feast!

  12. How exciting Norwood! I´ve never tried a frog!


  13. Ewww! Ick!! We'll try to remember!!!

    You might want to change your "All About Me" to read something more specific than "I love frogs".

    Are ya still frothing???


    Duly impressed,
    Jake (and Fergi) xxoo

  14. EWWWIE! I hope you remember next time that frogs are better left to the hoomans... they like frog legs as a delicacy, but I'll stick with chiken' thankyouverymuch!

  15. We're impressed Norwood - you caught it, even if it didn't taste very nice. The nslm's parents used to eat a lot of frogs legs, snails and other funny stuff like that when they lived in Belgium - but they say the secret is lots of lots of garlic!!

    Maybe next time ...

    take care

  16. Hi Norwood - wow, what an evetful walk! Hey, it's almost a shame it was a frog you licked - we hear that if you licked a toad you'd feel all mellow and relaxed, he he he! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  17. Hmmm, congrats, we think:) And something tells us you aren't going to trade in frogs for something else to hunt.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  18. Nice hunting Norwood.Pretty nifty. But prolly better sauted and served with garlic butter and a slug of white burgundy rather than your carpaccio style.

    Wiry wags n kisses Eric xx

  19. Wow, we're glad you were able to take some pictures to capture this important moment in history. Ahhhh, we're sure you will cherish the memories for many years to come...

  20. Hi, Norwood!
    Glad you did not have a close encounter with that Swam... he looks mean!
    I am so impressed! You got that frog??
    Sorry you had to leave it!
    My mom says frog legs taste like chicken but I am not so sure!
    Kisses and hugs

  21. Great job Norwood that you caught him ..... ;)
    Did you also played with the swan !!!!
    hugs my friend
    Kareltje =^.^=

  22. Yes, Sharon is back! Now, I'm back online! Happy Friday buddy!
    your pal,

  23. Very impressive, Norwood! You can add frog tasting to your repertoire. But very glad you did not try going for that huge hissing swan.
    xo Sammie

  24. Ewwwwwww... you tasted the froggie.... was it just like chicken?!? We saw a few when we were in Maine on holiday but our mommy person pulled us away immediately. We're sure you just wanted to play, Riiiiiiiight?

    Have a great weekend Norwood...

  25. Hi Norwood...just wanted to let you know that sharon sent you an email to your gmail account. After you read it, let her know what you think.

  26. Eeew, bet it tasted yuckey, perhaps you are better just to look for them next time Norwood and not actually taste them..hehe

    Glad the froggy was ok.

    Holly & Zac...XX

  27. Oh Norwood, I missed so much while I was away.

    I am so glad you are ok after the froggy incident, and the frog was also not harmed. My heart skipped a beat while reading that, you see, some frogs are toxic to doggies. I almost lost Princess, my female GSD, when she bit a frog, and she had to be hospitalized for several days.

    They are fun to look at, admire, and sometimes even chase, but be careful.

    Lots of love and many many tummy rubs for all the ones I missed.

  28. There's no accouting for tastes, that's what they say. =) I think I'd never put a real frog in my mouth, but I do love the taste of mud, don't you?! You're the best Norwood! =** Much love from Brazil!

  29. The book is on its way! And yes, I can do you think I could blog if I couldn't read?
    Hope you're having a frog-filled day!
    your pal,

  30. Good thing that crazy swan didn't get you!

    I love to play with hippities, but they make me froth & foam & sometimes even throw up. I know it's wrong, but I am weak against their powers!
