or so they think. In reality they are wimps. What can I say.
Yesterday while looking outside, I noticed the dogs were after something. They would stick their noses in the ground and jump back, then repeat, like that would give them the courage to go after whatever it was.
I saw something jump from the ground, so I thought it was a toad. Toads are scary things. I call the dogs in, because I don’t want them to eat it and then foam at the mouth. Dogs foaming at the mouth, inside my home, is a scary thing.
I went out to investigate what all the excitement was really about. I found this…
It’s a Garter Snake. Not very long. I couldn’t figure out why it was not running slithering away. I got a closer look.
Oh! I see why it wasn’t slithering away. Can you see why? Here let me give you a close-up photo.
Now can you tell or do you need me to point to the toad’s legs hanging out of the mouth. M-m-m, nothing like an afternoon snack!
As soon as the snake had its snack, it went on its merry way.
