We had enough excitement this morning to last awhile! We were running with our dad on his daily run, around the house down here, and when we got to my mom's bird feeding station, there was a cottonmouth moccasin coiled up with his mouth wide open, right under the feeders! (Probably why all the dove feathers were there yesterday!) Anyway...all four of us spotted him at once and encircled him with our noses right in his mouth!!! Dad yelled at us enough so we backed off...he ran in the garage & got a shovel and beheaded the snake! And he didnt' bite anybody...I guess he couldn't decide which one to bite, since he was surrounded! In the meantime, Woof-ergrabbed Dad's walkie-talkie that he had dropped, and took off with it, all the way out to the end of the driveway!! Another one grabbed his little stick he carries to take down spider webs and ran off with it another direction! Dad was finally able to locate all his stuff and continue our run!!! At least that snake won't be getting any more of my mom's birds, or threatening anybody!!! WHEW! I guess all's well that ends well! That was one mean-looking snake though!!!
