Nature is full of unlikely friendships between animals of different species, and this is just another example of that. This dog and toad meet up every night, just to hang out and enjoy each other’s company.
Foxtrot, the 3-year-old Newfoundland doggo, always treated those smaller than her gently and respectfully. She’s a big baby who loves to run around the yard with the neighborhood kids. With that being said, she’s well aware of the size differences and knows to sit still when they come over to pet her when playtime’s over. But these kids aren’t even close to being Foxtrot’s smallest friends.
One evening, Foxtrot was relaxing next to Rachel Koscelek, his mother, in their backyard, when an uninvited friend came hopping by. It was a tiny toad that bounced across their backyard. The doggo immediately showed interest in the little visitor. He leaped from his spot and ran towards him. Koscelek was certain that Foxtrot was going to crush it. Instead, the gentle giant simply stood next to the toad and stared at him for a while. After looking at each other for a couple of minutes, the doggo and the toad simply sat together quietly for close to an hour.
Koscelek figured that this encounter was the end of it. Boy, was she in for a surprise. The following evening, Foxtrot waited silently in his backyard for his tiny friend to return, which to Koscelek’s surprise, he did! The tiny toad hopped across the garage, stopped in the middle, and waited for his canine friend to join him. Foxtrot seemed much more relaxed in the toad’s presence and laid still next to him.
Then, one evening, everything changed. The doggo waited for the toad just like any other evening, but he didn’t show up. Neither did he come to visit the next day or the one after that. Foxtrot never gave up hope though. He sat outside every night, waiting for his tiny bouncing friend. He didn’t wait in vain. After a few days without a sign of the toad, the tiny critter returned. He sat on the driveway and waited until Foxtrot spotted him. The doggo instantly plunged from his spot and happily ran towards the toad. The two spent that whole night hanging out together.
Now, a couple of months after their first meeting, the dog and her toad friend, Frogo, meet every night. The two spend hours sitting silently together, enjoying the silence and the clear night air.
