The rain stopped thier foray, last week I counted 23 frogs doing laps in the pond while I was in the hot tub next to it. They hide well during the day and come out to swim at night. I added tiny goldfish last night to take down the tadpole population. When I put in larger goldfish a few yrs ago the possums and owls started snacking on them.
Fleece also makes great dog blankets. Again, for the non-sewers, just cut and don't worry about the edges. There are lots of patterns on line where the edges are tied in knots or just fringed. One or two layer fleece blankets. Cheap, machine washable, and lots of colors to choose from. (Just don't iron it!!!)
