It seems we’ve been rescued

For the third time, the frog returned. It is probably a Couch’s Spadefoot toad and a female at that because the markings are different for the genders. For the third time, we’ve taken her out of the pool with the nasty chemicals and put her into the bird bath where the drip system gives her fresh water every day and insects (food) come to get water.

She has rocks to sun herself and hide from whatever she wishes to hide from.

She can even swim when she wants.

Since she’s obviously decided to rescue us, she needs a name. We’re at a loss to think of a good one for her. The obvious choice is Boomerang but that’s been taken. We don’t recycle names and Boomerang was my first bird. Let’s put our collective heads together and come up with a name-“toady” won’t do it.

I'm a 16 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  1. …that’s very nice to adopt this frog lady, maybe she is a princess? check it out and kiss her… I think “amuse-gueule” could be a nice name for a frog (sorry I’m half-french) ;o) or Heget like the egyptian frog-goddes…..

  2. How about Tiana, like in the Frog Princess?

  3. Kharma, it comes back to you.

  4. HUGO-A-GO-GO….Oh cwap, it’s a girl..Ummmmm Croak…then 🙂 XX00X

    Mollie and Alfie

  5. You could call her Savvy, for Saviour – that’s what rescuers do, after all 🙂

  6. I’m too young to croak. How’d I mess that up? This was supposed to be a response to Mollie.

  7. OK, Here’s a stupid one Ribbit!

  8. Princess Toadstool!

  9. You could name her Tiddalik.

    Tiddalik comes from an Aboriginal Dreaming Story about a water holding frog…. You can read the story here http://www.kullillaart.com.au/default.asp?PageID=46

    • There isn’t enough water in this desert to make the story come true. The Aboriginal aspect is good-we have them here also. The colors of the frog are about right but this one is technically a toad.

  10. Tilly Toad. Anyway, hopefully, she’ll realise what a beautiful home she’s got now.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  11. Not really, Daisy. We keep putting her in the bird bath and she keeps going back into all the chemicals in the pool. She must be a Terrier Toad.

  12. Well since she has to approve all names, I give on this one. I am sure she will have a good one for toad.
    Sweet William The Scot

  13. Gee, I was going to suggest an original name like, Froggy. You know my dogs are Foxy and Scruffy after their looks…Oh bother… No, no, no I got it! Prince or Princess if it’s a girl.
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  14. Israr = Persistence in Turkish (I believe) and this little one has been very persistent 🙂

  15. I like Misaki’s Tiana though. Misaki is great at names we should have had a competition for Raffles, I bet we would have found a better name than The Producer did.

  16. We spent all night …. ALL NIGHT! we’ll have you, thinking of names for your toady friend, and boy are we tired this morning! Still didn’t come up with anything suitable. However, we do like Daisy’s suggestion : tilly toad. Off to bed (again) to catch up on some zzzzzz’s. Hopefully we won’t have names running/hopping around our heads!

  17. For some reason mom keeps saying Doris…use it…don’t use it *BOL*
    Wally & Sammy

  18. Let’s see. Here are a few suggestions (you know I think of more than one thing at a time): Alpha, Hoppy, Polly….actually, I like Wally & Sammy’s “Doris” – I think that’s hysterical! Polly (as in wog) is a nice one, too.

    Oh fun! The joys of naming!

    Arroooo-doodle-do, Stuart

  19. Oh just call it Wendy…bol

  20. […] our frog friend (see https://kylascott.com/2012/11/05/it-seems-weve-been-rescued/) hasn’t been around since November. Last night, on our last potty-out, she was there to greet […]
