I got a fright this morning when we came across a black snake. Nero was running a bit ahead and when I arrived 'at the scene' he had sniffed out this black snake. He was curious and also a bit scared. He didn't bite it or anything. He just wanted to sniff it, so he stood there with his head low, slowly edging closer... The snake wasn't impressed naturally. Her head was flat and raised and she looked ready to strike if he was to get a bit closer. When I called him off I must have sounded so freaked out that he just pulled in his tail and ran to me. *phew*
What do you do about snakes? A friend of mine has snake repellants in her garden but she lives at the edge of town and has frequently snakes in her backyard. We don't have this problem, I'm rather worried about walks...
