I never go barefoot outside, but my neighbor’s dog got loose and decided to run around in my backyard, so I ventured out just this once without shoes or socks on. I managed to wrangle Miss Daisy and get her back home safe and sound, but as I headed back inside, I came awfully close to stepping on THIS little guy. Good thing we both have fast reflexes: I stopped in the nick of time, and he jumped out of the way onto some nearby rock. Crisis averted. We have so many different types of wildlife outside in the yard, and I love the variety that we get to see each day.
From a safe and respectful distance, that is.
