    DefaultErnie Caught a Snake (non-poisonous)

    Yesterday I was inside fixing dinner with Abby and Taco. Ernie was outside with DH. DH stuck his head in the door and said "Ernie's got a snake. It's OK it's not poisonous."

    I yelled no it's not OK and rushed out the door. Ernie was having the time of his life just winging it around and throwing it in the air. I became psycho mom waving my arms, jumping up a down, and yelling "No Ernie, drop it, leave it", which he did but started to go back after it. I managed to grab his collar and said "run Ernie, run" and we ran fast back to the house. When we got inside, he was like WTH was that all about. I gave him yummy treats and kept him occupied while DH relocated the snake into the woods.

    Afterwards, DH got a lecture. Ernie doesn't know safe from poisonous, therefore all snakes are bad. I bet I repeated myself 10 times just to get the point across. I'm sure I was a nag but those dogs are my babies.

    I feel sorry for your DH. You need to train the dogs for snakes but it´s not your husbands fault. good thing it wasn´t poisonous

    I agree with B&Y that you need to train the dogs to leave snakes (all kinds) alone, BUT I'm with you in giving DH what for. Good for you!! It IS his fault that he didn't have the forethought to get why it's a bad idea to let Ernie play with something he shouldn't.

    Oh look honey, our 3 year old daughter is playing with matches. Don't worry, they're not real, they're made of rubber. Why look for trouble?

    My three aren't snake-proofed. I imagine one of them would pick a snake up. I would flip out too, I'm sure. I hate snakes poisonous or not.

    Yikes! When I lived in the country my dogs brought home everything they could catch when they were out for their runs. It was gross!

    Glad Ernie was o.k. Must be the name. Ernie is forever giving me hear attacks.

    We don't get snakes thankfully.

    Judy and Bruno are always harassing garter snakes. I can tell when they have one when their heads suddenly bob back to avoid a strike.

    Sometimes living in a subdivision doesn't sound so bad (no snakes, bears, porcupines etc....)
