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.
…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…..
Wouldn’t giving a frog with all her legs a French name be a form of torture?
it could only lead to misunderstandings if you would have guests from France for dinner or lunch :o)
How about Tiana, like in the Frog Princess?
On the possible list.
Kharma, it comes back to you.
This is on the list also
HUGO-A-GO-GO….Oh cwap, it’s a girl..Ummmmm Croak…then 🙂 XX00X
Mollie and Alfie
You could call her Savvy, for Saviour – that’s what rescuers do, after all 🙂
On the list.
I’m too young to croak. How’d I mess that up? This was supposed to be a response to Mollie.
OK, Here’s a stupid one Ribbit!
It’s on the list now
I’m the only Princess around here! We can’t have two.
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.
Tilly Toad. Anyway, hopefully, she’ll realise what a beautiful home she’s got now.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
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.
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
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
Israr = Persistence in Turkish (I believe) and this little one has been very persistent 🙂
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.
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!
For some reason mom keeps saying Doris…use it…don’t use it *BOL*
Wally & Sammy
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!
Oh just call it Wendy…bol
[…] 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 […]
