The days are getting milder, so yesterday we went for a mid-day walk along the cycleway towards the zoo. No camera, so these pictures are from last time.
|Bella leading the way|
SHE nearly let me, Daisy, run free; but there were a lot of men mowing, whipper snippering and leaf blowing. The 'Catheads on Footpath' sign was back. We didn't see any cat heads though. And the men stopped all their noisy motors when we walked passed, which was nice.
|Bella and Daisy looking towards the ravine|
Then suddenly, there it was..............a huge SNAKE......the first we've ever seen! SHE would have missed it, but Bella and I were on the job and chased that slithering thing. We might have got it if SHE hadn't put the brakes on our leads and yelled 'NO!!! BAD!!!!

As it was greyish, SHE thinks is might have been an Eastern Brown, they vary from light tan to black,
an Eastern Red-bellied Black. All she saw was the last metre of it disappearing into the ravine at about 87 thousand miles/hr.
Both are venomous!
Bella and I sure scared it !!!! (And Her, too.)
On the way back, we warned the workmen to be careful.
(Kendra never even noticed all the excitement.)
(Note from Wordless Wednesday. That chicken stick was mine. Kendra already had hers and Bella gets treats after me. We each got one.)
