  1. You called it honey? It was teeny and cute, but not that cute.

  4. Smooch is the best! Glad it wasn't a rattler and do hope it was the last snake of the season.

  5. Love it that Smooch gets quiet as soon as you rope the little thing. What a good dog. Aunt Jean

  7. I would've just shooed him into the bucket but this was more fun to watch.

  8. "The size of Smooch's bark has nothing to do with the size of the snake" -- while the size of the snake is inversely proportional to the size of the operation necessary to apprehend it... :) I must say, I was definitely more relaxed "accompanying" you on this particular snake hunt than on the last rattler capture! Another fun adventure 7 miles south of nowhere, thank you! Bonus (in my mind): learning that you, too, are aware of the fact that the words What the hell, honey, and crap, go perfectly together in one and the same sentence = I greatly enjoyed your negotiations with Teeny Snake! ;)

  10. Those are the kind of snakes I am not afraid of...the ones you cannot die from. Smooch is such a sweetie.

  11. Nice job! For the little guys you can just pop a plastic container on top of them, then slide a ridged piece of something under it, voila! That's how we handle big bugs and lizards that end up where they shouldn't be.

  12. Not gonna lie, I would have just picked up that chair and banged it over the bin until the little guy fell in. But that's me. However your way was much more entertaining.

  15. The girls would have made mincemeat out of that little guy. :D
    I thought of you last night as I relocated a baby grey rat snake that was hunting frogsin the dark - on my door latch!
