Dog Days #24

Fandango asks us for a fun fact about ourselves.
I guess mine would have to be snakes.
I was not going ‘urgh!’ when this was taken. This albino python was damn heavy!

I needed the table to support the other one though, it was just too much.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Snakes are fascinating!

  2. Uh, I’m not scared of snakes per se, and I might have stroked (touched) them, but I doubt they’d have been invited to wind themselves around me and use me as a kind of interesting tree. You’re brave!

    You’re my hero now! I just can’t imagine it!

  4. Snakes! Why did it have to be — Snakes! Lol. I love snakes, such amazing creatures. They’re given such a bad rap when its humans fault they get bitten all the time. Your pythons are magnificent.

    • They were indeed wonderful……….. and heavy!! No way I could have one though, I wouldn’t be able to look after it properly. Could be an interesting sight trying to take it for a walk with Maggie! Unique ‘lead’ don’t you think?

      • Can you imagine! Taking a sanke for a walk on a lead! That’d upset the neighbours! I’d like a corn snake or maybe a kingsnake. Something small and friendly. The only problem is feeding it the rats!

      • One of the darts venues had a tropics house with snakes and lizards. They kept the tanks well stocked with mice and crickets. We used to have slow worms and lizards as ‘pets’ when I was a kid.
        I’d love to take a cheetah or black panther for a walk on a chain though. That’d show the holiday makers who was boss!

      • My dad was a London darts League player in the 70s. He’s still very good now.

        How cool to have creatures to enjoy whole having a game.

        Did you see my post about having a panther wandering the woods in Norfolk UK. Having one as a pet would be a little scary I feel!

      • Beware of the cat takes on a whole new meaning doesn’t it.

      • Sure does! The prints were near my favourite writing tree too. I have to keep my focus about me sitting up there now to be sure I’m not being stalked!
