Not just any venomous snake. An Australian snake.

Dude...in Australia, even the kittens are venomous.

Seriously...that's a GOOD puppy!

Paralysis didn't show for 12 hours? And how is this not greenlighted?

Wow amazing. My dog saved my kid's life by attacking a poisonous snake so let's wait 12 hours when it can't move anymore to take it to the vet. If you dog is attacking a snake it will get bit, don't assume he didn't it will. Hero tag for the dog, Dumbass tag for the owners.

Perhaps dog owners need dogs to save their children from snakes because they're too stupid to teach their children to look out for the venemous snakes, which might reasonably be expected in an area where venemous snakes occur. Dog cheats Darwin? Dumbass parents indeed.

You think River the dog cares about getting stung by a snake? River doesn't give a shiat, it just takes what it wants.

What another snake killing dog looks like. Smokey Boy was our dog when I was growing up in sw Louisiana. He was bitten no less than 3 times that I remember by water moccasins in the yard. He would go under the house and stay there for a week or two only coming out for a few bites of food and water till he got better. RIP Smokey Boy

I used to sleep on my back with my mouth open. I know, I know, I'm a mouthbreather. When my girlfriend moved in with me, she brought her two male cats, both indoor and territorial. I had to start sleeping on my stomach because one of the cats developed the deplorable habit of urinating in my mouth while I slept. It was distressing to dream that I'm drinking seawater only to wake up to find a twenty pound cat hunched over my face. Now it only pees on the back of my head which is a lot easier to deal with than a mouthful of cat urine.

I would have paid for cat puke. My cat used to pull the wings off of bees and then drop them into my sneakers. And then there were the live mice that he'd bring in and plop onto my chest while I was napping.

Damn cat never actually KILLED anything.

My niece's cat was brought into the home as a two-month old kitten, and very quickly got along with the two 10-yo labradors. As such, it developped dog-like habits, such as going with the girls at their school bus stop, and waiting for them at that same stop when they come back from school.

I'm familiar (and admiring) of your work, so I hesitate to comment, but dude...that would be one dead farking cat if it was me.

A Boston terrier named Cupcake jumped in front of my mother (when she was a child) and took a bite from a rattlesnake, barking all the while to warn the family. Cupcake died that night and was buried under a tree in the backyard. Mom took us by her old house years ago, and pointed out that tree.

A) I don't believe you

B) That's hilarious anyways, in an angering way

C) Misbehaving cats are the result of idiot owners who don't know how to train animals. Our cat knows it's name, usually comes when it's called, is polite to kids, knows not to get on tables/counters, understands that a snap of the fingers means stop what you are doing. We also have two well-behaved huskies, maybe growing up with them made her dog-up a bit.

I tried closing the door, but the cat would always figure out a way to get to me. He pissed in the coffee maker for a week before I realized why it tasted so off. And if I tried to discipline him, he'd get worse and shiat in my cereal while the other cat created a distraction. It's better to just let him urinate in my hair and get it out of his system each night.

Why do we put up with cats?
One of my cats shiats in the tub. Another one puts little drops of pee everywhere. He's blind, tho, so we think he's marking so that he can find his way, so he gets a pass.

But, if a cat pee'd in Hubby's mouth? Said cat would be dead. (Not really, but it wouldn't be living here anymore.)

My only thought is maybe the owners didn't realize the pup was bitten.

Yeah, that's funny.
But here's a true cat story:
Kept the pup crated during the day when she was young.
The cat would sidle up to the dog crate, turn tail up and spray the dog and crate and her bedding with his stinky cat spray.
That's a cat for you.

Teach him to piss in the fireplace, then apply for an NEA grant.

Reminds me.
When we lived in GA, we had a Golden named William.

One day, he was barking at the concrete slap that passed as a patio. There was an overturned kids lawn chair half on, half off of the slab.
I moved the chair and saw a snake move. Now, being that I am TERRIFIED and SKEEVED by snakes, I went back into the house, taking William with me, jumping up and down whilst saying "Eww" repeatedly.

I called animal control. They only deal with dogs and cats. Told me to call 911. (Only time I have ever called that number)
Sheriff's Deputy, probably named "Bubba", came out to look.
He pounded on the porch with a shovel, since the snake was coiled up in a hole William had dug under the slab. The snake finally came out, and went to the nearest corner of the house.
Deputy Bubba went out to his car to call in shots fired, and proceeded to shoot the snake 3-4 times. Then the snake took off across the backyard and Deputy Bubba took the shovel and cut it's head off. It was still trying to bite him, even with the head disconnected from the body.

All of this happened right outside the big window into the backyard. The kids were fascinated.

The snake, a water moccasin, was put into a small box and put into the trash.

A few weeks later, my neighbor was mowing the yard and told me that she was running over baby snakes.

YUCK!

"Yeah, River will pass the poison, so we'll just wait it out."

"We better take River to the vet, now!"

And there's nothing you can do?? Have you tried wearing an absorbant do-rag, or a padded yarmulke with charcoal lining?
