This is a TDB fast breaking news story. I'm your astonished doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel.
Look what ghostwriter found by the back door this evening! Wow!
She said she almost stepped on him! What a mess that would have been!
We all couldn't believe that this toad had gotten so big over the hot, dry summer. He must have been feasting on Japanese beetles through July, and crickets lately, since those seem to be the only bugs that were in abundance this year.
After a photo session, during which the toad peed a lot on ghostwriter's and Dad's hands, and on the floor, Dad put the gigantic amphibian outside in the front yard, so I couldn't get him. A word of advice to you doggies out there. If you see a toad, leave it alone. It might be the poisonous kind.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress.
