Another toad story

Since I already tweaked your interest in toads with my last post, I think you might like this story by The White Coat Underground titled Should I Lick This?

It was of special interest to me since Rosie (the dog) likes catching and licking toads, and then comes inside frothing at the mouth and vomiting. Our vets told us that although the toad “slime” is an irritant to the dog’s mouth and digestive tract, it isn’t lethal. Thank goodness we don’t have any really poisonous toads in our area.
