Revenge

A few weeks ago I took my other girl out for her evening walk. During this walk we encountered a rattler and Sadie was struck on the nose. Here we are in the ER getting all checked up. Thank goodness the bite was not too bad.

I have been very cautious every night when going out for our evening stroll. Tonight the wife joined me for our walk. I had my rocks in hand because I was getting my revenge. I was so focused on the spot where the dog was bitten I failed to notice that I walked within inches of the snake tonight. I was alerted of this by the scream of my wife and the barking of the dog. We were reunited tonight. We all knew each other, and tonight would be the end of one of us.




WE WON. Both Sadie and I walked back home with some extra swagger.

Classic!!
"Play nice" shirt with dead rattler in hand....
Looks like a tire pump in the other hand?? (Le way poon??)

The bike pump was the longest tool I had to provoke the rattler and to keep some distance :) It was then used to remove the head.

love it!! and yes, the play nice shirt really adds to the photo. Gov Ricky and his coyote shootin' are nothing compared to this!!;-)

Never leave home w/out it.......the many uses of the bike pump!! This is one of THE most classic blog posts' I've ever read. You rock!! Cotters up three/snake down under 1. Sounds like a win to me!! Best in this strong racing month; big schedule........you are lucky; lots' of coke cola's coming your way. I told Wendy if I come ride with her and saw a snake I would faint. I just don't know. Go kick it James and Lindsay; you both are one class act in our book. Tad and Jennifer Nottage and Family

That is wrong killing a snake. Would you kill another dog because it nipped your dog on the nose? And then top it off by showing it off like a barbarian.
