LEAPFROG | BLOG HOP

By Wednesday, July 16, 2014 14 , Permalink

I’m always entertained when I take Harley out for a walk. He takes his walks very seriously – and he takes his time during these walks. He is not the dog you want to walk when you’re in a hurry to go somewhere. Every tree, every mailbox, every light post gets “thoroughly” examined. This is his job, and he rarely gets distracted  – until the day he played leapfrog while on a walk in Charleston…

Charleston July 4th 2014 014

Frogs on the sidewalk are somewhat rare in our Virginia neighborhood, but in Charleston after a hard rain you can spot them hopping around freely in the early evening. When Harley first spotted Mr. Frog he walked past it as if it was a rock (rocks are not on his sniffing list). But as soon as he stepped over it – Mr. Frog hopped.

This sudden movement caused Harley to spin around. I swear he had the most puzzled look on his face trying to figure out how the rock moved. So when Mr. Frog leaped again, right before his eyes – the leapfrog game was on!

Each time Mr. Frog leaped, Harley hopped behind it.

It was an extra long walk back to the house!

    Mom has worked hard to teach us to be scared of creepy things like frogs. She is terrified of them and doesn’t want them anywhere near us…silly, I know.

      Deirdre, Harley hops all the time. At the Pet Resort they nick-named him “Rabbit” P.S. I agree with you – Doodles are the best!

    Aw what a cute new friend! Shiner spotted a lizard yesterday in the question and immediately notified me. I had my 9 year old catch it and put it outside.
