Drabble #60

Photo prompt: Frog

It’s the same reaction every time. When the dog sees a frog, she acts like she’s never encountered one in her life before. She sticks here nose in close, so close the frog jumps away from the intrusive snout. The dog is always startled by the jump, she gives a startled whine and backs away. But then the moment of curious wonder crosses her face again, and she crouches, sneaks towards the amphibian, and the process of sniff and jump begins again, until the frog disappears in the creek. The perfect entertainment for two broke kids on a summer night.
