    You are the last person who should feel bad! This was an unfortunate thing to happen, and if any buyer gives you the third degree, clearly they do not deserve to be taking one of those precious pups!

    Took the words right out of my mouth Oskar's Mum!

    Maybe your Vet can give you a death certificate, with snakebite as cause?

    Sorry for your loss. That would be devastating. Do you live in a snake problem area?

    I think most people will understand and hey if they don't. they are most likely not the right people for one of your puppies.........The vet telling them what happened should be enough, i would accept that easily. Pictures would be nice to see.

    It is a very unfortunate thing to have happened


    Just a question...Are the puppies not with the Bitch all the time? Just the way you said they are inside with you.

    I really think the first thing should be trying to snake proof the area the dogs will be outside if feasible. You really don't want the girl or pups playing with the wiggly thing. Snake season is almost over and there are no guarantees that the snake will not be hibernating on your property.

    I am on acreage too. We have starposted, wired and use snake netting/shade cloth to about 3ft up the wire to enclose a huge area for the dogs. It would all be able to come down if we were renting and moved.
    Sorry. Just trying to think of ways to help. I could have lost my 4 last May with the RBB they were playing with. That vet trip to test was $1000 Caught 3 in the netting this summer too that couldn't get to the dogs. I recon it has just about paid for itself.

    I have geese and peacocks/hens...our geese have killed two snakes that we know of.....We are also on large acreage. Guinea Fowl are even better, but they drive me mad with their racket........So we got rid of those

    Maybe we should get ourselves some geese to run in the yard especially if we
    get a young pup so the pup can get use to livestock..
    We use to have geese years ago but they got a little aggressive with the kids..
    Great guard dogs......

    :lol: Ask Katy, she is terrified of them , they are aggressive, BUT.............I think it is worth the small inconvenience of aggression, ours are not too bad and easy to move along
