Dumpy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dumpy
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: White's Tree Frog
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   Hi, my name is Matthew, and this is my frog, Dumpy. I got him the day before Thanksgiving. He's a very nice frog, and he lives in a cage right next to my bed and next to my Pacman Frog. He's a White's Tree Frog, named Dumpy because White's are also called Dumpy Tree Frogs. He's quite fat. He always has a cute little "smirk" on his face, because he's always happy. He's a real good cricket catcher, too.

    He's a very peculiar frog, because he is affectionate for his tank-mate, Mowgli, a female tree frog. Most frogs just ignore others but Dumpy really likes her, because he gave up his prime behind-leaf spot for her, and he sleeps next to her. He is special because he is an alarm clock! He often wakes me up at 7:00 AM. Anyways, he likes to be handled, though he's a delicate frog. I can pet him if I am careful about washing my hands, and he happily sits. He croaks often at midnight and early in the morning. Once he woke me up at 6:00 for Christmas! Smart frog!
