Perils of Pet Ownership #2

Yesterday it was cats messing with the visitors...today it is dogs.

 

This lovely snake was beside the front steps of our house when discovered by Tip and then Spot.

 

After a little excitment we managed to push the dogs away and Na assisted the visitor to make a getaway through the grass and into the culvert over the gutter outside the front fence.

Thank you for this great series Ray, I love snakes!
Ray: I am delighted that they visit our garden, Richard. The dogs get excited and the cats get tails like feather dusters, but nothing gets hurt.

It's a lovely looking thing. Presumably the dogs have seen a snake before?
Pix #4 is my favourite.
I take it this snake is harmless? Great set of pictures Ray

I enjoy your images despite the perils I'm aware of!
The dog is looking warily at this snake, that is sound thinking with these creatures,never knowing how dangerous they might be.
All God's creatures great and small...and you're protecting them, Ray. THANK YOU. Our "children" learn from our example, which is what I hope your dogs (and cats) are learning from you?

WOWSER. I love snakes... very impressive. Don't get me wrong I don't want them as a pet and I will stay at distance. but they are so fascinating. the skin and all.
Great series.
I think they like to hang out around circular objects like this. I have a huge iron planter that has been here since there was a blacksmith shop here. I have often found snakes around the base. Excellent shots.

That is definitely a man-eating snake; the dogs were lucky to escape with their lives.
I've got to say that I dislike snakes so much that there is no way I could have stopped to take photos.
Good series of the adventure of this little snake Ray....petersmile
