Daisy, Dorah and the snake

Dorah is back on her meds, and still peeing on the carpet. I am not amused. We did walkies June 4th. Maggie Magnolia was blooming nicely.
 

Back at home, the goldfish were fed by hubby. They are looking pretty healthy. Perhaps there are 8 big ones?


Our large garter snake is still hanging around. He's about 2' long, and the thickness of my thumb! Good little bug eater. I think it's waiting for the frogs to arrive, though. It might be the same one as last year!

They are harmless, at least to humans! It was hiding under the edge of the pond liner, in the warmth of the sun. I think it's going to molt. It's been here since June 1st: Goldfish in the pond
 Last year, it was a water snake that slept in the pond liner. Did I tell you the one about the snake and the frog? Watersnakes will bite, but not one this small. Garters are gentler.


The great excitement came at the goldfish pond.


Daisy shows a healthy respect!

Daisy knows it's better to leave those alone.

I like garter snakes. They're rather interesting little characters.

That Garter Sanake may have those fish for lunch one day. When my daughter was a little girl we kept a Garter Snake in a large terrarium and its principal diet was moribund fish we used to get from the local pet store. One fish a week kept it in perfect health.

Lovely to see all of your photo's.
I especially liked the ones by the pond and your video.

All the best Jan

Cats peeing on the carpet is such a chore. I had a male cat neutered later in life and he never gave up his spraying. We have been seeing lots of garter snakes sunning themselves on the cabin deck lately. That's not a good thing for Wayne, he really doesn't like snakes. - Margy
