Another Great Find for Thunder

Hey, do you remember how I told you about my great walk a few days ago where I made a new friend, Tony Turtle? Well, I haven't had any luck in finding him again. Sadly I think he has gone away.

But tonight I heard a really strange noise and heard something whiz by my ear and land in the grass. I pounced as fast as I could and snagged a really tasty, crunchy bug. Mom tried to get it away from me but I was too quick and swallowed it down before she could say those magic words of "Leave It!"

And then, how lucky can a pup get! Just a few paws down the path, I heard that sound again. I put my big swappers into action again and pounced - GOT IT AGAIN. But rut roh - she got me - THUNDER, LEAVE IT!!!. And since woo all know what a good pup I am, I just had to drop it. Here is what I almost got seconds on:

Do you know what THAT is? A great big, yummy, crunchy cicada!!!!

Mom said I might be ready to try out for the next season of "Survivor"!!!

Woo, Thunder

I love to crunch on things. I wish they would hop down from the trees around here. At least you got one which was very clever of you!

love & wags,

Oh, I LOVE those things, Thunder! I love to catch 'em flying through the air or get them off the ground - and I love, love, LOVE it when they buzz in my mouth and Mom reaches in to get it and is all freaked out. Oh, wooooo, how I love cicadas! You're one lucky pup and talented hunter!

oh Handsome Thunder... I hope that cicada was worth it. It doesn't sound too tasty to me. I see Khyra suggested adding some yogurt... but I am not sure.

I'm not sure how tasty that would be... aren't better snacks served at your house?

I just finally got used to their stupid sound this weekend. Makes laying outside much nicer...'cept when there are l'il kids around, or people grilling, or other dogs, or cars driving by...


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Wow, that looks so tasty. I love to eat bugs.

Those are our summer favorite! We all fight over them outside and it's a race to see who can find the most. They taste the best when they've just crawled out of the ground and are still in their crunchy larva shell! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
