Maw sed since we gotted a few inquiries bout grasshoppers from yesterday's post, that we need to hold skool fer the poodies who nefer seen a grasshopper or had the pleshur of pullin the liddle legs off ov the creashurs.
Here ist wat sum grasshoppers luk like. Taint dey ugly? An dey JUMP. Jus wen u finks u gonna pounce it, it jumps rite outta yur liddle paws!! Owr Maw says "Eeeeekkkk!" wen dey jump at her. We giggle. We like it wen dey jump. More funner.
And see dose really big back legs? Dey fall off really easy wen u play wid dem. An dey gots liddle barbs on dem so's dat dey stick to da carpet and Maw freaks out cuz she hasta pulls dem off the carpet. Tee hee.
We also lufs crickets. Sally (u hafn't met her yet) is a berry gud cricket hunter. Crickets make chirpee noises at night. Really loud!!! Their back legs fall off real easy too.
Sally brings crickets in frum the garraje an den tries to hog dem fur herself. But we all gang up on her and try to steal it away wen it jumps outta her paws. It's SO much fun. Den we pull off der legs. Tee hee.
Oh, and Maw sed we bedder tell youse guys dat lots of times ifn we eat one, den we yack. Mebbe dey no gud for da digestive system. We wood much ratter play wid dem tho den eat dem.
Anuffer fing dat we luf to play wid, is the gecko. Tee hee. Sally (u hafn't met her yet), is real gud at catchin geckos too. She a real hunter dat Sally (u hafn't met her yet).
Da funny ting bout geckos is dat der tails fall off. Ya tinks ya got a gecko by its tail, and den da tail falls off. We is glad owr tails dunt fall off!!!
Oh, Maw sed to tell u da geckos we catch taint like the TV star gecko. Dis is wat owr geckos look like. We wood show u a real life pikshur ifn it was summertime, but da geckos in hidin since it not summertime. Here's a pikshur frum the innernet.
