A visitor and good news

There we were sitting out in the sun room when we heard a loud chirping noise - we looked up to see this big guy on the fly screen - he was HUGE - nearly 3" long! Now check out his pretty colors and spots!

We did have good news at the vets - it is only the top of my tooth missing and no root is visible so he is going to leave it alone for the time being and look at removing it when I have my next teeth cleaning.


  1. he is huge, we are glad your tooth will be okay. stella rose

  2. Whew. I'm glad you don't have to have your tooth extracted right away.

    We don't see bugs like that around here. Cool!

  3. BOW WOW, I'm glad you're getting better, Reilly! AND BOW WOW, I WILL NOT, I REPEAT NOT, GET NEAR THAT TINY ALIEN!

    Your cowardly Dachshund pal,

  4. Jeez Reilly. I feel bad for you. Your foot is still a bit of a problem and now you have a partial tooth. How'd you do that? No Nylabones they are too hard for doggie's teeth. You might want to skip real bones too. My sheltie brother Jetta had to have a couple of lower teeth removed. Right in front. Mostly you don't notice them missing and he eats just fine. So we're hopeful that your foot will heal up fine. But we'll be back to check in on you.

  5. You could go FISHING with that guy...

    OMD OMD that is very good news about your tooth... now we need the same sort of news about your PAW and we will be happy campers.

  6. OMD, that is one HUGE bugger!!! I bets it's crunchy too! maybe you needs to get out the melted butters....☺
    Oh, that is good news abouts your toother! at least you can wait, wooohoo!
    still sendin' lots of POTP your way, and to your Moms and Dweeb too...☺

  7. At least the tooth news wasn't too bad. Bella has taken the top off one of her canines--catching rocks--that has to be watched. That foot just needs to heal soon! We sometimes chase those chirping critters, though ours don't have nice colours.

  8. Glad you got some good news. As for your visitor, gross! They hop, fly, and stick in your fur!

    Aroo to you,

  9. Aaaaaack! That thing is huge!!!

    Glad no dental work has to be done yet. My dog Copper chipped and broke a lot of teeth. I called him a jack o lantern for having like 4 teeth pulled. You have enough going on without worrying about that. Hang in there.

  10. We are happy to hear the tooth is OK - whew!!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  11. Yay for no dental work and what a cool bug!! Florida has some really pretty buggles!!

  12. We get the kids to catch those blokes. We get heaps of 'em here and they make an awful mess of the garden. We feed 'em live to the green tree frogs and the bearded dragons. They love 'em and the kids love watchin' 'em get devoured. Crikey ....... how cruel is that?? Quick call the RSPCA!! They also devour cockroaches. No one complains about that. You wouldn't think a green tree frog could catch one of those blokes but they move like greased lightning when they want to.

  13. Soooo pleased to hear about your toof. Now lets do sum serious POTP to get your poor paw all betters.
    I luffs your visitor, such beautiful colours
    Loves and licky kisses

  14. I hope the tooth makes no further problems and it is behaving well in your mouth... I never saw such a big cricket...and it looks like a mix of a cricket and a leopard... imagine that... well better not huh?

  15. That's great news about your tooth, Reilly! Whew!
    What a huge bug!

  16. Oh my, kind of pretty, kind of creepy!

  17. Squeals - that little friend is HUGE! I'm glad to hear about your tooth that it can wait until the next cleaning. HUGS! XOXO - Bacon

  18. Mom does not like insects so we had to shield her eyes. We are glad the tooth isn't going to need further treatment!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  19. Did you try to pounce that bug!?! I would have. I mean - if I'm to be honest here.
    That's great news about your tooth!!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  20. Our thoughts are with you for that paw to heal!
