Hoppin' Hoggie

Don't let the heat fool you, fall has hit Northern Virginia. I know, I know, you don't believe me. But just like the groundhog let's us know how much more winter we will have, Sophie lets us know when fall is here. It is officially fall when the toad returns.

You read that right.  Every fall, a tiny toad appears on our front walk and Sophie spots it first.  It hops, she hops. It goes into our flower bed and Sophie tries to track it. Fortunately she never catches it - I fear what could happen. But there is nothing funnier than watching Sophie and her frog hop around the yard. (Unless it is 3 in the morning and then you want to scream.)

Last night, Grannie took Sophie out and when the toad went under my car, Sophie did the same. Thankfully she was on a leash at the time.

So get ready to bust out those fall clothes. I mean who are you going to believe - meteorologists or Hoppin' Hoggie?
