Will I Ever Learn
The photo above is one of me when I was just a wee lil pup. You see 3 and a half years ago, I was sitting all alone starring out and doing a little people watching, when this couple stopped by and gave me the warmest smile of my puppy life. I became so overwhelmed by their exhibited non verbal skills, that my tail wagged so hard I was literally being thrown all over the place. Suddenly, I began to feel rather silly and desperately tried to control my emotions, but it was to late. That's when it happen, time seemed to slow down and the attendant's speech began to drag and slur. As she slowly approached my gate lock, and attemped to open it, her fingers seem to lose it's way. I tried to help but to no avail. Finally, the lock gave way and I was in the arms of the lady with the pretty eyes and great smile. We couldn't help but be a match, because after all, I picked her.
She introduced me to her partner. He's the guy you're more familiar with and who by the way, is still trying to figure out how I managed to get into his head and write this post. But desperate times require, desperate measures. Besides its his fault for allowing me to watch tv. I particularly like Jerry Springer and that guy who yells, "You are NOT the father", ... Ha, ha.... . Of course, my favorite is show is watching "Brian", from Family Guy.
Ok, back to my plight.
I need your help in order to find out does anyone else out there, who try with all their might to just be friendly..., get hammered when you kiss a frog? Ummm, and if you don't, then why, Oh why sweet Jesus, is it always me?
Here's what I know.
The practice of "toad-licking" has evolved into an urban legend, in that the venom secreted through the skin of some toads cause hallucinations. Which is why I think, I'm a contributing author of this blog post.
See what I mean?
Anyway, the venom is highly toxic to pets. Take for instance, my other friends and family members (dogs), are most likely to come in contact with a toad, and have a high probability of dying if untreated.
I quess, I should leave that curiousity thing to cats.
I also found out that I don't necessarily have to lick or God forbid eat a toad, to be poisoned. There have been cases where frogs have been attracted to a dogs water dish and just because it was unattended, they sat along the rim, leaving enough toxin to make you sick. It's actual difficult to find the presence of the toxin. You technically have to see it happen, but if you're suspcious...
Here's what to look for:
If your four legged family member has ingested enough toxin, they may have an irregular heartbeat and may start acting strangely, as if they are locked in the grip of a hallucination. Call your veterinarian if you observe:
*Mouth irritation with foamy salivation
Well, I patiently await your reply to let me know if it's just me, because just the other day, I was in the back yard minding my own business, when suddenly there he was, gazing at me with those huge bulging eyes. I tried to just walk away, but I was trapped in their stare. That's when it happen, I heard that ribbb--it call and I... ok, I licked it. YUKK!!, not again... "Will I Ever Learn"?
