    Yeah it was bad for her funny for me as I actually like snakes. Everyone is good and the snake is gone. Several years about we woke up in the middle of the night as one of our cats was going bonkers. When we turned the light on we found out he was playing with a little garden snake in our bedroom. Hilarity did not ensue with that one.

No biggie I just thought she was going after a leaf or something that she usually goes after. That was until I turned and looked at my wife and saw the horror in her eyes. I quickly turned to where Harlea was at to see her trying to pick up a baby snake that was on the patio. Lucky for us it was just a little king snake and she didn't actually pick it up but the look on my wifes face was priceless and I didn't have my camera with me to get a picture.
    Oh lordy - I had this same reaction when Remi was going over bumble bees on the ground. Yours is a tad more dangerous, but I was thinking, with my luck, Remi would have an allergic reaction and keel over!

    yup....Hate

    AGREED. I would still be screaming...Dudley weighs 80lbs, but I think I would have hefted him up and arthritic ankle or not...I'd have been booking for the house! DESPISE snakes! So glad everyone was okay...And quite honestly, it's a good thing you didn't have the camera, because I'm pretty sure your wife might have killed you if you were taking pictures during this terrifying event!

    You are probably right. It still would have been a good pic though.

    In your bedroom? !!!! Your poor wife! I would have loved to see her face on the patio. Boy oh boy that's a scare.

    Not really, the bumble bees are far more dangerous than a little king snake. I understand people's fears but I'm with Todd, we also like snakes.

    Scary indeed! We get a few baby snakes here too in our backyard. Don't usually see them. Three summers ago we were at the lake, might have been four summers, and Ace & Orion were about 15/20 feet ahead of me. Before I knew it, they were each on one side of a rattle snake and it was in striking position. Luckily both boys followed my commands and when I yelled at them to come, they came instantly. I can't believe neither were bit. It was freckin' nerve racking! I can imagine your wife's horror.

    Luckily it wasn't a venomous kind. I like snakes. I actually had a ball python as a pet for several years. I named him Verdi. He was very sweet...unless you were a mouse. But I would have def been worried if Brie came up on a snake w out knowing what it was first! These bullies have no fear and are relentless which is not always a good thing!

    To be honest i would have been more worried if it was the Savannah Monitor that i used to own that we called Dweeb. By the time I gave him away he was almost 4 feet long and feeding time was not a pleasant thing to watch as his diet consisted of large rats and he would crawl up in your lap just like a puppy.

    OMG. I would have freaked out too and Harlea just thought she had a new friend to play with..LOL. My husband found a black snake in our backyard last week and I told him to pack everything up and call a realtor cause we are moving. I don't do snakes.
