    Default How Has Your Dog Aged You?

    My young 12mth old Husky, Zultan aged me 10 yrs today!

    Out having our off leash walk as usual, walked from the beach onto our track which we always walk, Zultan normally runs in front and watches where I am, no not today! Whistled, called, no response, wandered back up the track to find Zultan doing the "boing" in long grass numerous times. DISTRACTION in this area....!! To my horror, he then caught his prey, a black snake! Well you can just imagine my reaction. Zultan dropped the snake, through hearing the new sounds coming from me, LOL (now as I`m sharing this) but the snake was in strike position so more new sounds were coming from me and Zultan responded, then came, straight back on the lead, straight back home and then watched for the next two hours for any symptoms of snake bite.

    He is still with us, and is the most sheltered dog at the moment,LOL, I am sure I will give him his freedom again. One day

    !!!

    My old Jack Russell used to do that all the time!! I would look out in the yard and see her little white tail sticking out of a hole, wagging like mad, then next minute she would emerge with a dead snake in her mouth! Out of all the snakes she killed, she got bitten twice, and it was the second bite that killed her

    So I would keep a strong hold on him from now on!!

    So glad he's ok!!

    My boy did this to me not long ago. Out for a walk, he was off lead and sniffing around the old stables at the local showground. He yelped and jumped back as if startled. Then went back in for a second look. Walked away and yelped, then started holding up a paw and crying.

    I couldn't find a mark but my OH started running home to get the car while I made him stand still. Brought him home and nothing.

    I thought I was going to have heart failure and made him sit on the couch all evening while I checked his pulse every ten minutes...

    All I can think of was that he stepped on a thorn which pricked his foot but didn't get stuck, and it wasn't related to his fright at the stable... I would've been cross with him for scaring me so bad if I hadn't been so relieved.
