 Now don't say I'm just spinning a tall tale here. Years back when my 
son was 10 years old we had a toad living under our front porch.  We 
had two dogs that were fed on the carport and the toad became so tame 
he came out to eat dog food with the dogs everyday.  Amazing enough, 
but the dogs moved over and let him eat. The toad (Leo) would come 
out when he heard children and I always had a hard time telling the 
kids they did not find a toad, he lived there and they could not take 
him home.  Sad ending to such a tale, we ran over him one night on 
the drive way.  What a bad ending to one strange experience in life.
