    Pondy was so cute. He gave ClaraJane a goodbye caress on her ankle as he went.
    Just what you wanted. Nature Re-Search in the field. I’m sure Pondy was happy he could return to his toad flamly. And tell them about his great adventure with Giants!
    ARE dry frogs called Toads? Is that the diff?
