I like snakes: they eat rodents, and I’m allergic to rodents. But the dogs don’t like snakes that trespass on their area near the house. They left this one in the middle of the walkway from the house to the carport. You see it in the truck on the way to somewhere else.

I think Yellow Dog is nostalgic for her YouTube hit, Black Snake vs. Yellow Dog. They look mild-mannered, Yellow Dog and Brown Dog, but so far a beaver, a raccoon, several rattlesnakes, and two kinds of water moccassins have found tangling with the dogs is not a good idea.

Although that copperhead did give Yellow Dog a bit of a hangover. Here Yellow Dog thanks you for your concern.
