Adventures with wildlife ...

Tonight I read Roxie, Sammy and Andy's blog and discovered that they had a huge adventure. They defended their household form a vicious snake named Copperhead! They risked their very lives to take care of their family! What brave dachsies they are! It was so serious, they had to go to the Texas A&M doggie hospital!!! They are ok though.





Their terrific tale reminded me of the vicious animal I killed in my yard the other day. According to my mother's research, it was a Five Lined Skink or a Blue-tailed Skink. This is what he looked like before I killed him.



This is what he looked like after I killed him. Notice he doesn't have that blue tail anymore!! Bwa haha. I ate it!!

This is a picture of me. Don't I look brave?

Hi Copper,

Me & the Mommy are going to College Station tomorrow to visit with Roxie, Sammy and Andy but I'm kinda scared there might be some more snakes out there but because I want to see Roxie & Sammy for myself that they are OK. I'm gonna chance.

I'm so glad that snake is dead and that creature you killed too. You look so handsome in your picture.

Hey Copper,
I dunno what Mom's screaming about but I think you did a great job killing that lizard. I would have done the same. Good job!! :)
