London, Maddie & I went to a good old fashioned backyard birthday party for an 8-year-old girl this evening, on the other side of Mendham Township, NJ. One of the huge draws for both the boys and the girls turned out to be catching frogs in the birthday girl's pond. I only half-jokingly said to the birthday mom, "Can I take one home?" My loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers know that my older daughter, London, is allergic to dogs, horses, and most anything with hair. Now, check out the picture...I don't see any hair...maybe a frog would be the right pet for my girls? I had considered a turtle, but apparently turtles are not something you can buy legally in a pet store, at least in New Jersey.
Seriously, folks, I don't know anything about taking care of frogs. Are they reptiles? Amphibians? Do I need to provide both water and dry land in a froggy habitat? I do have an empty five or ten gallon aquarium left over from a failed fish experience back in my wild single days. Could a frog -- or two -- be happy in the Roxiticus Valley?
