Todd hurried out, took the hoe from me, and chopped his head off. That's what we do with snakes around here. We chop their heads off, and throw them over the fence to warn the others.
I heard the Rollei Snake Bark the other day. Now, sometimes this bark is really just a Stink Bug Bark/Bird Bark/I'm a Beagle Bark. We keep a hoe by the back door, so I grabbed it on my way to find the stink bug. Since Rollei has been bitten by copperheads 3 times (and each one costs us a small fortune in Vet fees), we usually run to make sure it's not a snake. Well, I'm glad I checked, because, sure enough, we found a stinker that looked a lot like this curled up by the fence, and posed to strike!(Photo from Google Images.)
I mentioned in the 9 month post that Nathan likes to get into Rollei's water bowl. Here's some pictures and a short video to prove it... We finally put up gates. We have some more baby proofing to do. We especially need to block off the (*ahem*) fireplace.
We got to attend another special event at Aunt Paula and Uncle Mike's beautiful home on Friday. We had a great time celebrating your birthday, Uncle Mike! :-)
