OMG i just killed a huge freaking snake!!!! Tonto was barking and i had the baby chicks outside so i went out to see what was going on and tonto was circling the babies cage barking...i walked over and looked at the ground and seen this HUGE snake..i got the shovel and chopped its head off.....its now in the driveway. thank goodness for tonto or that snake would have had baby chicks for lunch!!! i am so glad that he has become a part of our family!!!! he gets a steak for dinner tonight!! such a good dog!
