Loki and the frog

The nice thing about Virginia, and the east coast in general, is the abundance of woods. There are a lot of woods. Loki seems to love the woods. We went to a park yesterday. There, he met his very first frog (or is it a toad?). In the beginning the frog played dead, and Loki eventually lost interest. Then it hopped over to some other part, and Loki had a little trouble finding it again. He couldn't really see the frog, which was camouflaged pretty well, but he could sniff it out. Funny how different our senses are. We humans could spot the frog even with the camouflage, but Loki couldn't.

Here we have a clip of Loki bouncing after the frog!

Good video! Loki demonstrates why Shibas are considered cat-like!

On a serious note, make sure Loki is current on flea/tick treatments. If he is wandering thru east coast woods, there is a very good chance of picking up ticks. Many years ago, we had a female Dalmatian who would travel the NJ woods with my brother. She would come back with embedded ticks everywhere, including her face. She looked like a teenager with acne!

This was before Frontline,Advantage, etc. but you will still need to be careful.

Kitsu is very cat-like as well.. he just had his 2nd round of shots yesterday so hopefully in a few weeks we'll be able to take him out. He's been noticing the outside world thru the fence lately, and i'm sure he can't wait to explore the greater falls church area.
