Milt was in the spa-room, walking on the treadmill and he heard Kandi giving her "Help, Help! I have a snake" bark. She was right outside the sliding patio doors, which was open. It was a baby copperhead about 8" long. He killed it.
We need to begin closing that door. We leave it open so we can just let the girls in and out the door from den to spa-room and they can then go on out. Dumb move!! Snakes can also come in. We'll just have to walk 14' further and open two doors, don't you think?
Milt went on a snake hunt in the area, fearful more are out there. Usually, as we discussed not long ago-where one snake is....there is another!
These little girls are good snake dogs. They have found several. Kandi was bit when she was about five months old. Now she knows they are not the least bit friendly.
The last two we had were good for poking their noses on them and getting bit a couple-three times a season. Cost us right at a hundred bucks each time!!
We'll be careful!
