    Yucky! I wish my dog would kill me a snake. I think if she ever saw one (she's only 7 mo. so I don't think she has yet.) she would either try to play with it and get bitten, or run away screaming. She's a huntress, that one. =P

    LOL, My german Shep ( Daisy) has always hated them. Her puppies (9 wks old) wanted to play tug of war with the dead body..yuck. The fist one my son let go since it was just a baby, I had my nephew make sure the one my dog killed was dead since it was headed towards my kids play area. I HATE snakes. I dont mind the bull snakes cause they keep the other snakes away but ugh I dont want to see them.

    Bleh! Snakes give me the heeby geebies. [​IMG]

    I'm not looking forward to the first chicken snake I find. I've only had chickens of my own for... some months. It's time for the snakes to come out and play again. :\ I will not be a happy camper the first time I find one around my chickens. My cat just had kittens so hopefully one of them will be a good hunter. Mama knows not to eat our chickens, so she should pass that on to her babies... *kill a snake little kitty!*

    look to be babies, might be more out there. My cats kill them too, I have no idea how they do it without getting bitten.
