Sophie and the toads

Sophie got her first taste of toad over the weekend. There are many in the garden around my parents' house. Sophie stuck her face in this particular plant (nice and brown from the frost). When she pulled her head out, she was licking her lips like she'd just tasted something awful. Even so, every time we were by that plant she'd go in for a check. Maybe she thought that only some of them taste terrible.

How do you know she ate a toad??

Funny, Izzy did the same thing last weekend at the lake. She enjoyed playing with it for a while and then mangled the poor thing but stopped short of swallowing it. Then she got the same look on her face as she did when we tried to feed her a jalapeno pepper.
