That was not a tail wagging because it was happy to see us either!
This thing was slithering across my lawn! If you said Sheeeeet... you would be close to guesing how I reacted!
Adrenaline pumping...you get the picture!
My granddog walked over it before I realized it was a rattlesnake! Of course I yelled and scared Gus to death and he ran back across the snake to me! Lucky thing it was stretched out and trying to move not in the striking position!
I grabbed Jack and Gus and put them in the house.
When I knew the boys were safely inside and no one was hurt I grabbed a shovel. Problem with rattlesnakes for me is I can not hear them rattle!
If I worried about it the way most people would I would never leave the house. Rattlesnakes are plentiful around here. Good advice is...
always have a shovel handy when you live in the country!
Snake stew anyone? How about bbq snake steak?(-:
