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
