... a 3-legged frog. Yup, you read that right. We just adopted a 3-legged frog from Petsmart.
So yesterday we were taking one of our pugs to the Banfield Pet Hospital at our local Petsmart for a quickie visit. While we were waiting, we walked around the store a bit to kill some time. My 3 kids love looking at all the animals, birds, fish, etc. It's like a free zoo!
We end up at the fish tank area because my 6 year old is in the market for a new beta fish since hers went belly up a few days ago. It's always sad to lose a pet, even a fish, and she loves her fish so we needed to find a nice new one. I thought maybe she might rather have a little mini African Dwarf frog instead since they're adorable, active and fun to watch. When my hubs and I were dating, we had a couple, all named Freddy, of course!
Yet, I couldn't get her to commit. She refused to transition from a beta to a frog. Oh well, I tried, right?
Wrong! As we're walking away, my 7 year old daughter yells, "Mom! Come back! There's a frog in here with only one front leg! Mom! We need to give him a home! Mom! The poor thing! He'll never get adopted if we don't adopt him! Mom! Mom! Pleeeeeeeeease!!!"
