I Hate Snakes... I Hate Them... I Hate Them... I Hate Them!

I was walking Matilda this evening and she stepped right on a copperhead. I didn't see it strike at her and the emergency vet says she would have definitely reacted if she'd been bitten because it would be painful. He had me check her legs and snout for bite marks, which he said would be very obvious and said to watch her for signs of lethargy and drooling - although I'm not sure how to tell that from her normal behavior.

Fortunately copperheads aren't extremely aggressive or especially venomous. Still, when you see your dog right next to a 30 foot long, ugly, evil looking reptile with a huge gaping, hissing mouth filled with poison dripping fangs... it can unnerve you.

I. HATE. SNAKES. (and spiders...) (and stinging insects...) (I'm not really fond of worms either...)

Ye gods, I need a martini...
