A few weeks ago two stray dogs wandered onto the farm: an enormous white Great Pyrenees, and a skinny, skittish Doberman mix. With leashes in hand, I tried to coax them to me. The Doberman was very frightened and ran off, but the Great Pyranees came right over. He wasn't wearing a collar, but I was able to get a leash around his neck and tied him to my deck while I went inside to make some calls. The local vet, the Humane Society - my next thought was to get a photo of him. I went out with my camera to get a picture, but in the 5 minutes I had tied him up, he chewed himself free, and all that was left was the chewed end of the leash.

A puff-adder snake (http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-153-10370_12145_12201-61207--,00.html) was in pursuit of a large frog in the driveway the other day, which caught the attention of the dogs. Frogs emit a noxious tasting slime when threatened, so the dogs left him alone, and the snake played dead (as you can see by his curled tail) when the dogs investigated her. I put the dogs in the house and everyone was left unharmed. I am not afraid of snakes, and it was a sizable snake.
