Working Hard so we can Hardly Work

Here is Little Black Brindle doing his patrols as the head of security at the office.  He is working hard today and making sure everything is secure as we will be gone for a week and a half on a working vacation.  After his rounds today, he thought he'd get in a little practice for what he'll be doing on vacation

We are heading up to the Northern Prairies of Montana and North Dakota.  There will be new sights to see so hopefully in between working we will be able to play tourist.

In the mean time, check out what we discovered at Prairie Cairn Cottage this past weekend.

This handsome creature was spotted as My Ever So Handy Husband was finishing up the fencing project at Prairie Cairn Cottage.  Don't misunderstand this picture.  Mr. or Ms. Toad is no bigger than and inch or two.  He/she would wiggle his/her butt into the dirt until he/she was almost completely submerged.  I think this is a Plains Spadefoot Toad.  We are about 5 miles away from the nearest creek so we don't know how this toad got to our back yard.  The only thing we do know is the prairie is full of unusual creatures.

Mr. or Ms. Toad will have free run at Prairie Cairn Cottage for the next week and a half.  Good luck and don't leave any warts behind.

Come on!  Let's get this vacation started!
