Footprint?

I'm not sure what to make of this.

This fan-shaped area of flattened grass wasn't there when we left yesterday morning, but it was definitely there when we got home late afternoon. It looks like a giant footprint:

Anyway, if your pet therapod has escaped somewhere in Grumpyville, I think it was in my backyard today. Hope that helps.

Clyde - probably Clyde - but it could be Blinky or Pinky or Inky...

The truth is out there.

Mama D said...

Not much of a guard dog you have there... ;)

Mad Jack said...

I know it looks like a therapod print, but it isn't. As evidence I submit that the dog didn't react to the print, which would still retain the unmistakable scent of the roving therapod.

What I think you've got there is the landing site of a US spy drone conducting surveillance for some alphabet soup department working for the USSR. You probably should call Homeland Security and report it.

It looks like a water flow artifact. Is there a downspout nearby? I once flushed my hot water heater out through a hose onto the lawn. The grass didn't like it at all and it left a similar shape that turned brown. It recovered within a few days, but I never did that again.

Fertilizer burn. Now calm down.

Ms. Donna said...

Yep. Fertilizer. BUT you should get out the tin-foil hats. The NSA is subtle and wants to gauge your reaction. Probably wants the password to the blog and the list of subscribers.

I'm with Mad Jack ~

Actually, that was me. Sorry about that.

I miss them! I loved watching them play in the backyard as I looked out the window waiting for my computer to boot up, keeping an eye on the blinking cursor at the C-prompt ... ahhh. Those were the days, weren't they?

Skateboarder climbed onto your roof, rolled off the peak, and went splat.

Enough with the fertilizer burns and big feet, folks!

That was simply The Lawn Ranger release.
On the 4th of July. Just as the papers said.

Nothing to it.

Fungus.

One of the remote control miniture spy-drones that spy on the American public obviously landed in your yard.

I'd check your house and yard for bugs, and get rid of all electronics... you might need to rip out the wiring as well. Or just accept that the NSA is watching everything you do.

Personaly, I'd prefer the therapod.

On a related note - that is why the puppy was named Mello.

I read it as an indication of personality.

Oh, please. I toil day and night on that stupid lawn for months at a time. I'm out there trying to tame the latest weed mutation that's taken up residence there- or some alien fungus from god knows where. If it's not the damn kids ruining it just as it was starting to look good, it's our or my idiot neighbors' pets ruining it.

You DARE complain Dr. Grumpy about the faint outline of a therapod print on your lawn?! You sir, are a DISGRACE to grumps everywhere! Why I'd like to strip you of every last one of your grumpy credentials you presume to pride yourself with.

Believe you-me if this were MY lawn there wouldn't be some humungous barely-visible therapod print on MY lawn. NO! I would however discover on MY lawn, one GIANT therapod DOODY.

BTW- keep your kids of my damn grass too!
:-)

If all your dogs pee there it could be from the urine. Urine's really good at killing grass.

Just how urban are you? Because if you're a little closer to the sticks, deer often like to chill out and chew their cud while resting sternally. *shrug*

Also, as an amusing side note, the captcha thing wanted me to type 'loginbs'. No word of a lie.

It's so sad when we have to trap and try to rehome these creatures. Do you have any idea the room requirements for a therapod?

Unfortunately, many wind up in shelters or worse.

So, please have your therapod spayed or neutered today.

*cue sarah mclachlan*

Technically, the therapods are still here. The branch that survived to today we call birds.

Leaping lizards!

Rodney said...

There's a big lizard in your backyard. I hope you can afford to feed it.

Jurassic Park lives. T. Rex had very small feet, so it must be his cousin. Hope he gets home. Your furbaby would have made a tasty morsel.
