Other Pond Life

Black Willow blossoms. In a few weeks the air will fill with downy willow seeds.
"I don't know, what do you think it is?"
Along with the newts, tiger salamander larva, and tadpoles, an occasional Labpole will make an appearance.

whatever they were sniffing, I hope they didn't roll in it!

That's a mighty big Labpole y'all got there in da pond!

Does it have gills?

I wonder: Is anybody allergic to willow trees? Like Black Labs? (I'm guessing the dog is swimming to get rid of the willow seeds, right?)

ImagineMel said...

and, as you know, it was a good answer! :)

But will we get to see him when he changes into a frogdog?

SEEDS! NO MORE SEEDS! What are those stringy brown seeds that are raining down by the buckets here in Florida! They stick to the cats, our feet, our hair and I'm so snuffy I can't see straight. Errggg.

So, what's the pig update? The final chapter, so to speak? Weigh-in with an answer please...

They don't bother the pondlife?

The Labpole is distinguished by its tail, which will propel it through any kinds of waters. Much more efficient than than the Brittanypole, which will just splash a lot of water.

Vicki asked the question I was about to ask. Will his tail fall off as he changes?

Laura,
No, it was just some doggy fascination. Lucky me this time!

ThreeCollie,
I used to think she did.

Mel,
Thanks for the grocery store update.

Hoss,
She's a Lab. She swims therefore she is.

Vicki,
That's not oak flower remnants is it? Of course down there, it could be some exotic thing. Welcome to FLORA-da!
Pig update today.

Laurahinnj,
No, not at 11 years old. They are pretty benign.

Deb,
You must have a new copy of Petersons Guide To Caninepoles.

POP,
Gawd, I hope not!LOL.
