"Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held it's ground."

Hi dear friends,

It's happened again but this time not to my friends, Dachsies Rule. Another snake attack but this time it was a cottonmouth moccasin not a copperhead. We didn't post last night because Mommy was still upset over what happened. Sophie got bitten Sunday morning BUT she is OK, but not out of the woods yet. It happened in the backyard of the house where the DROH dog show party was held. What is so scary is that all the doggies, that where there Saturday, had been in and out all day Saturday and when Sophie was bit Sunday morning all of Susanna 's pups were outside when Mike heard the screams from Sophie. They called the dogs in and Sophie came in with blood all over her face. This is a picture of kind of snake that bit her. The Vet said Thank God it was juvenile snake that bit her. Please keep her in your prayers.

SOPHIE before bite.

SOPHIE yesterday after bite.


"What happened to privacy"


Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.........Mona

Ugly snake, how dare you attacking my innocent friend Sophie!
If I see you, I'll teach you a peemail lesson!
Mona, I asked Snowy's Mom about the return date to her children, she said she didn't know.
I want her to be at their side asap, children always need their mom. I need my mom pick me up, kiss me, feed me, massage me, but not to bath me, haha!
