TOO HOT & SNAKES IN IOWA

I can't get this adorable picture I photoshopped of Thor and Marco Polo to upload so you will just have to imagine them sitting in their wading pool because I have the only two siberians that don't like a wading pool.

I did hear back from the Department of Natural Resources for the State of Iowa. That snake most likely wasn't a Copperhead but maybe a Northern Water Snake that isn't poisonous and we really don't have poisonous snakes anywhere in Iowa. And althought Copperheads are poisonous, they aren't usually deadly unless you have a really small dog. They are found in eastern United States.

So, tomorrow on Wednesday off work, the boys and I will be doing our Wednesday Hike at Copper Creek. Thor and Marco Polo's MOMMY

What a relief it was not a copperhead. We have those and the water snakes here too. Mom kills them. She is so brave.

I'm glad the snake wasn't bad, but my mom says thanks for not posting a picture of it. She's a scardy-cat.

Good to hear that you can go back to Copper Creek. We were worried that something would have happened to you.

Ooooh it's lucky those snakes are not deadly. We have LOADS of deadly snakes in Australia. I stay away from them.

Eastern United Staes??? That's where I live! Woo! Mom says this is a no snake zone so they better not come here. She doesn't even like earthworms. Too squirmy!

Hmmmm. was Mom playing with Photoshop again??? I have three just like that here, want no part of the pool but show ThunderDunder a water-filled hole in the ground and you would think he died and went to puppyheaven.
