My Little Dog Almost Saved My Life!


Recommended Posts

I've written many comments on my best little friend 'Chyna the Chocolate Chihuhua', but yesterday she could very well have saved my life.

I had been out in the morning, and got home around noon - she greated me as normal, but kept running to the laundry room and barking and then coming back to me and then to the laundry room repeatadly. I assumed she was barking at the neighbours dog.

I eventually got up to get to her, and he had cornered a 2 metre long (approx.) Brown Snake in the laundry room (One of the top 10 most deadly snakes in the world).

I guess if it wasn't for Chyna - the snake would either have hidden in the laundry basket (with laundry in it), and I would have had a nasty surprise when I went to fold it, or it would have roamed the house.

Either way, I could have ended up with a fatal bite - and so could she - for some reason, she knew to keep her distance, and although the snake was striking, she kept out of range - She just keeps amazing me!

Luckily, the snake was right by the laundry ranch slider, which was unlocked, so I managed to open it with a very long broom handle, and then 'encourage' the snake outside.

Just wanted to let you know how lucky I am for my little furry friend. :)

What a little hero!!! Dogs always amaze me, personally I think they are the most intelligent of all animals. I always know what kind of day I am going to have just by the way my dogs act around me. If its going to be a bad day he is immediately by my side hovering over me. If not he's pretty carefree in his actions.

I love them!!

I hope your pup got some extra hugs and kisses! YUCK!!! Snakes!! I was just watching a show about snake venom and medical issues, and they were "milking" venom from a brown snake... and mentioned that it was one of the most poisonous in the world--with just a drop of venom able to kill a human. Now that's a sobering thought, yes?!

I bet you breathed quite a sigh of relief when that thing slithered away from your house! Good doggie!!!
