We suspected that we had a snake living in our garden over the last year. He finally came out to sun himself today. Jack (the dog) was on the ball and kept him rounded up. My response was "Stay there - I'm getting the camera!". Don's was slightly different, "Stay there, I'm getting the hoe!" I managed to snap a few quick photos before the aforementioned hoe put period to the snake.
Needless to say, we are very thankful to have a dog!
