The Snake is Vanquished!

By cooky
A grab shot for Silly Sunday. We have two Border Terriers, Bertie and Spirit, I leave you to guess which is which.

Their mortal enemies are the Silicone Snakes, one pink and one lime green! They regularly kill the snakes, retrieve the snakes and shake them to death. Those of you with very mouthy dogs - these snakes are totally indestructible but if whipped around your legs - beware!

Results: Snake won...again!

No Terriers or snakes were injured in the making of this image.

Great capture, made me smile, they look to be sharing too.

Lost for a good comment Kath, but I bet it keeps the terriers active. Race memoeries of Cobras in Yorkshire maybe?

LOL - I was trying to make a feather duster out of them! Weird handle. Never mind in Ian's post I thought the puddle was the edge of a cliff. But that was a really good party last night. Love the 'expression' on the snake.

The snake is doggedly resisting, but he's old and fangs ain't what thy used to be...

Thanks for the explanation, I had no idea what I was looking at. But I always like an image which is less than obvious.

Thank you all and yes - total madhouse but wouldn't be without them - well most of the time! Wink Knew you'd understand Sandy! Usually ends up with Bertie - 9 years young, dragging Spirit - 2 and a bit. around the floor! Yes Dora, they need hand stripping and do look like a pair of feather dusters - great party eh? WinkWink

I'm glad that Bertie and Spirit weren't bitten by those highly toxic snakes Kath!!
They do look as though they're having fun.

😅😂Yes Glenn, nearest they will come to a poisonous snake! They tease one another dreadfully and Bertie always gives in. Thank you for your comment.
