The clever men at Oxford, know all that there is to be knowed. But they none of them know one half as much, as intelligent Mr. Toad.
Kenneth Graham, The Wind In The Willows.
The puppies have been antagonizing a toad that lives around our patio for the past couple of weeks. Tonight they kept barking, so I flipped on the light to see why. Mr. Toad was sitting in their water dish with just his head above the surface. The puppies would lunge at him, then jump back, over and over again. But Mr. Toad wasn't worried about them. He just calmly sat in the water dish and ignored them. :o)
