Look what Topaz found yesterday evening right off the edge of the carport. I heard her barking, and then Patti-Jo joined in too. I looked out the kitchen window and saw a 'lump' in the grass where she was looking, but looked farther and saw Zach walking this way swinging a rope, so dismissed the lump as a fire ant bed. Zach had been out there with the roping dummy, so I thought they were just barking at him. But as he got closer, he heard and saw the snake and got his gun to kill it. It was about 5 and a half feet long and really thick. Hopefully this is the last one! Topaz is still leary of it in the picture, but she stood her ground. Thank goodness she didn't get bitten.
