She's helping to take care of him!
Gretchen lives out on some property owned by a local greyhound rescue organization, and she gets to hang out outside for a lot of the day, working with the greyhounds--she works there. She sees some pretty cool stuff out there:
This is "Albert" (her name for him), a toad she found and described as the biggest toad she'd ever seen. Not ten minutes later, I got the following photo with the text "toady tricks:"
I replied, "That Anthony, always fooling around!" She was pleased with my name for the smaller guy. How she got these guys to pose like this, I have no idea. Maybe she's a toad whisperer.
She's also seen some great birds out there, like this Ruffed Grouse:
Here's a photo of her mom's HUGE dog Remus, who was too big for Gretchen to kidnap:
This dog makes Domino, a normal-sized dalmation mix, look like a puppy. It's a BIG dog.
She also sends me funny things she sees, like this, with the text "hee hee:"
That Gretchen, always fooling around.
Still and always, however, my favorite Baby G photo will be this one of Domino:That's one sweet old gal.
