FFFT - August - I can't believe I ate......

We have had such a super exciting morning. We got up at 5.30am to go to MY park and watch the sun rise but something even better happened. Mom was sitting on a log right next to the water edge when she saw Mr Beaver - he slapped his tail and went under but Mom watched the trail of bubbles he was leaving and was ready with the camera when he came up again. They are not great pics because it was still not very light but he was so close to us and guess what - he came with friends - we counted four of them!!! We are thinking it is a beaver family. Now of coarse we weren't interested in all in the silly old beaver - Dweeb was sitting by Mom's feet and I was sniffing around and found a big old grasshopper and you know what happened next - I can't believe I ate it - YES I DID - just call me Captain Crunch and Munch! Mom turned around and mumbled "Erk Reilly - you can't be that hungry"  I mumbled back with my mouth full of grasshopper bits that I had read grasshoppers are very high in protein. Mom did get some sunrise pics too - she says she loves the way it shine on our furs - what ever Mom! Thanks Murphy and Stanley for another great Fractured Friday Hairy Tales


  1. was it tasty? And can you jump now like a grasshopper too? That would be great, imagine that... we could get the tree-rats with one leap!

  2. OMD a crunchy snack indeed. Was it yummy? Lucky mum seeing a beaver.
    We have a spare slot for 'share it sunday' so if mum would be so kind as to send us a link to the post she'd like to showcase we will have it ready for sunday.
    we are at mollyDOTthewallyATbtinternetDOTcom if you no longer have our email. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Beautiful sunrise pictures of your dogs.

  7. How fun to see the beavers out for their morning swim. The water is so clear!

    I read an article that said if we all started eating insects we could pretty much save the planet. Good for you Reilly for doing your part!

  8. A grasshopper? Did it jump around in your mouth Reilly? That would feel weird, I think.
    Toodle pip!

  9. Mommy said ... yuck... on eating the grasshopper.

  10. How lucky! We've never been able to catch a grasshopper!! Did it taste like chicken?! BOL!

  11. eeww, Mom says she can just hear that grasshopper crunching in your mouth!

    YIKES - was it spikey??? I know peeps who have eaten grasshoppers in far off countries... one dog's meat and all that... Beautiful photographs!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  17. The beaver is pretty cool. I would probably want to jump in the water and get him, though. Can't believe you at the grasshopper. I love to play with them, but have never eaten one!
