    Hello everyone!!
    Most of my doorstops are mammals, and this is the only amphibian doorstop that I have in my collection. I've had this one for many years now and he has resided on the steps of my patio for the entire time. He measures 6" tall, 7" front to back and 7 1/2" at his widest point. Since this is Father's Day weekend I like to think of this one as a father frog carrying his son.

    Thank you all for stopping in for a look!!
    Scott

      Frogs, gotta love them! ( though my maternal Grandmother was petrified of them)
      Do frogs carry their young like that? He is so bright and cheery, put a smile on my face this morning! ( even before coffee) Ha! I miss hearing their “croaking” at dusk when I lived in the country…though these two are quiet, yes? My Father had a old cast iron frying pan hanging on a walnut tree in the front yard. ( lots of old items wound up on that tree) Once I asked a friend, “Do you want to see a frog in the frying pan?” She looked horrified! I walked her over to the tree, and lifted the edge of the old pan and and sure enough there was a tiny frog residing inside. At the base of the tree was an old copper tub my Father used for a dog water dish, many a frog used it too….
      Thanks for bring up some fond memories for me Scott!

      Eileen,
      Thanks! I truly doubt that frogs carry their young, but I've always loved this doorstop though. That's a funny story about the frog in the frying pan:) We live in the country and, at night time, we can hear the peepers and the bullfrogs croaking from a nearby pond. Beautiful music to us. Every morning we hear roosters crowing from up the road. I love being in the country!
