My Dog Saved My Life



I was driving my power wheelchair fast down this ramp to get to my backyard....when I heard my dog barking frantically behind me, I looked back.

and there was a gray snake uncurling from the gray brick wall on the ramp 

as far from me as where you can see the dog collar lays at in the pic above....

I had just passed by a snake and did not notice it!!!

I think uh oh as it starts slithering down the ramp toward me....I have nowhere to go!

quickly my mastiff horse dog went after it and bit the snake almost in half!

When hubs finally got out there he said the snake was a 3 ft water moccasin....he pushed the snake off the ramp.....so I could get back in the house.

I felt so protected after it was all over last night!

 I Thank God for watching over me! And my horse dog too.

Oh my. I am so pleased that Horse Dog was at your back.
And am hyperventilating as I type. I don't do snakes well. At all well.
In one of our homes there was a red-bellied black snake that lived under the front steps. For about nine months of the year I only used the back door.

Sometimes God's protecting angels may be in the form of a dog.

Makes my ramp story rather anticlimactic! Glad it worked out for you.

That was a miracle.
Hope the dog is also ok and hasn't got any snake venom in his blood.
