This is how we rock


Hi everyone,sorry for the absence..i had planned to get a lot done and the recent snake versus Forrest issue kind of put paid to any of it. So I have been grounding myself in the kitchen…baking..and playing with the pups and kitties and just thanking my lucky stars that we still have our boy. I plan on doing a post with some info later as I have read some very disturbing things on blogs and forums and feel I need to get some clear information out there..as having first hand experience with not one but two bites in the same poochie..but for now as i ease my way back into some sort of routine I thought I would share part of that routine..the nightly struggle between canine and feline that exists in our multi-species abode..no animals are harmed in this..except maybe some canine dignity..you decide..who wins? Notice Forrest is happily sleeping through the whole thing..as always..he is Switzerland. Thanks folks and good to be back!

  5. Hey Bev, so glad to hear Forrest survived another snake bite. Used up another dog life. The video is gorgeous. Saw the middling size red bellied black sunning itself in grass 2 mornings ago. Still very warm up north, wondering when Autumn will arrive.

  6. Oh my Doc had me LAUGHING my head off! He and Dakota are soul mates!!!! The expression on Pickle’s face throughout the entire ordeal was just priceless! She has even more patience than Cody has! Pickles was looking at him like he was completely DAFT!! She remained soooooooooo unruffled! Dakota frequently barks in Cody’s face and he looks at him like he is crazy too, but often Cody will just have enough of it and swat him. God I loved this video! xoxo Sooo happy that Forrest is doing well!

  7. Crikey …… this happens EVERY night? Way too funny!! That Doc bloke’s too soft. I’d sure like to give that CAT a bit of hurry up!! Glad you’re back and glad Forrest came through ok. What a terrible ordeal. Mum’s terrified that I’ll come across a snake one day. I can’t help myself. I’d have to check it out and I’d end up just like Forrest. I came across a blue tongued lizard once. I didn’t hurt it but I sure barked it up good and if it was a snake it would have bitten me for sure.

    • Doc is a bit of a softy Charlie hahaahha probably because he’s a grannies boy ;)..yes you best beware the old snake my friend..even Bluey’s can give a nasty bite that will cause repeat infections! Forrest was very lucky…again! and we have no idea how that thing got in…that yard has been designed to perfection..must have been a baby brown and Fozziedad has shored up even the itty bitty bits now! It must have bitten him and he has eaten it or it got out the way it came…no sign of it…except for a sick boy and a huge vet bill…so you be careful my friend! loves Fozziemum xxx

  8. I must have missed the blog about Forrest vs. the snake! So sorry, but glad he’s feeling better! Do you have snake aversion training there? If anyone needs it, Forrest does!

    • No not that i am aware of….it should never have gotten in this yard..must have been a baby brown..hubby has shored up even the tiniest cracks now …we are looking at the sonar repellents..problem is these snakes make no sound..no real warning and are next to impossible to spot..he has such issues that if I were t get him to some training it would be more stressful than helpful..just keeping him in every March now bwahaha..his last encounter was March last year too..urghhh

      • People take a lot of precautions believing they can keep the rattlesnakes out of yards. Most people don’t know snakes, not just rattlers, … can climb. Perhaps you need to look a little higher for the access points.

        Or you can send Forrest to us in March πŸ™‚

        • Hahaah I might do that πŸ™‚ we have really high paling fences and know that the bigguns can climb..i think it was a bay for sure and managed to flatten itself to get in…could even have been dropped by a bird..people do forget they climb..i think mostly if they come across a big obstacle they move on..seems to be what I have observed..i guess all you can do is all you can do…and say bring on winter! πŸ™‚

  9. We are very glad to hear that Fozzie is home safe and well again. We have been AWOL ourselves Auntie Bev and probably will be for a little while longer. Mom says it’s got something to do with “life getting in the way”. Personally we feel that when something gets in the way you just bark at it and generally it gets out of the way…butt what do we know, right?
