As a lot of you know we have (had) two dogs, which are like children to us.
Tip, our Jack Russell gave his life this afternoon protecting the yard from a brown snake. We are devastated. He was a typical Jack Russell, and we always knew he would be taken by a snake, as much as we had tried to "snake Proof" his back yard, it did not work. The strange thing is I dreamed two nights ago that Tip had been bitten and the last person he saw was his very favourite vet, and this afternoon as I was napping I woke, again dreaming about a brown snake , to find him gone in the back legs. .....And it had been a beautiful day too, Tip had sunbathed all morning. Our small gum tree did not survive me backing into it either! Sorry to drop this on you all, as I know you have your own lives, but I needed to get it out there.
