When did it get into the house? I know how it got in because he had been hanging around the back of the house and the patio slider for the past few days and nights - probably wanting to get into the house where it was cooler (we've been having an insane heat wave). In fact, I had first spotted him when the puppies were playing under some shrubs by the patio. He is HUGE!
So most likely when I took the puppies outside for their final pee before bedtime last night, he was by the patio door and just hopped inside the family room without my spotting him. And since the puppy pen is set up right by the patio door, Mr Toad must have made some noise to set them barking last night which then set off the big dogs. So we have good watch puppies and watch dogs!!! Anyway, having a large toad in the house is a first for us. (Thanks to Corrine for taking these pictures of Mr Toad for me when she was visiting.)
