Snake 'n the Grass.......'N Divin' Fer Bass......

Hi Ta Everyone.....

While we were at the cottage on our last visit, Pap took a wheel barrel full of split wood ta the back of the house so it would be ready fer the cold weather......cause we mostly use the wood stove ta heat the cottage.

Once he unloaded the wood, he found a snake in the wheel barrel and my Mom just loves ta chase snakes so he brought it ta the front of the cottage. Gram has seen this kind of snake before and it's called a ring neck snake. My Mom doesn't care what it's called, she just loves ta chase 'em.....

See what happens ta the snake.....

Don't ya wonder how the buggers move along like that without any legs? But they're real sneaky....yep, just like a snake in the grass..... poor snake....he's history now cause my Mom shook 'em too much.


Pap was splittin' all that wood....'n Toby always loves ta play with big logs....he grabbed one of the split logs and ran off with it. Here's what he did with it ...........
===============================

===============================


We just love ta go inta the water. So Gram 'n Pap took us up ta Keller's Lake ta try ta catch some fish....some rocks in the water....'n some sticks.......'n ta cool off too......

Here's what Keller's Lake looks like....pretty isn't it ???



Then we got ta go inta the water and got ta enjoy ourselves some...watch 'n see what we got ta do....

My Mom always likes ta bring balls back when ya throw 'em.......we never really went inta the water where it was deep til this trip....ya might get ta see us paddlin' along.......'n ya might see my Mom bring back a stick....



video


Boy, ya think my Mom knows more about stick fetchin' than I do ???? Nope.....no siree.....just watch me bring back that stick ta Gram........that's me....Dewey Dewster....Master stick fetcher extraordinaire..........



video


Well....now that ya got ta see how good I am at bringin' back the stick....ya know why everyone thinks I'm so special....don't ya..????


'N now ya know why we love ta go ta the cottage so much......we love it there cause there is lots of room ta run 'n play......'n places ta swim....'n vermin that needs my Mom ta teach it that it shouldn't be there at all....


Yep.....that's North Western Pennsylvania at it finest........'n Dewey Dewster at his best......

Almost fergot baby Parker.....maybe we should say big boy Parker now........
=========================================

=========================================


Have a great week..........everyone...........


This is Dewey Dewster reportin' on Snakes, Lakes and pictures that Gram takes............'n big boy Parker......who has what it takes.......

Hi Guys,

I didn't watch your snake video. Mom thinks I'm too young for that sort of thing. (She's the one who gets queezy.)

Dewey, your stick chasing skills are unparalled. You are the best. (Wink, wink, Asta Marie. I know that you did all the work.)

Parker is adorable and he seems to keep getting cuter and cuter. But, tell me, is that my car that he is driving in some of those pictures? Yikes!!!

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses for Everybody,
Koobie

What a fantastic time you have been having. We would just love to chase and shake a snake but sadly they are quite rare in the UK.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH my mom is terrified of snakes and she was too traumatized just seeing it's wiggly body in the snapshot of the video. I am going to ask my dad to help me watch the video.
You guys just have sooo much fun at the cottage! Thanks for sharing your videos!

Uh oh, Mom likes those little ringnecks, she used to play with them when she was a kid. Always was a little tetched in the head, though, so we must forgive her. I'm with your Mom, though, give 'em a good shake for me.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

G'day pals
We're not allowed near snakes here because the ones we have around our area and all really bad news.
The cottage looks like its in a great part of the world. Nice and green.

Looks fab to me, except the water part. the water scares me! My aunt lives in NW PA near Greenville PA, cool place! That poor snake got it just as bad as the wood!

Master stick fetcher extraordinaire,

You looked "splashing" good, fetching the stick (that I guess was found by your mom.)Your Mom is definitely very brave. Mercury remembers a girl called Yolang in a place called Jowai (in a place called Meghalaya in India,) who handled snakes quite like your mom:) Of course Mercury was, as she says, little back then - but I can assure you that she wouldn't touch them...she'd be scared!

Baby Parker is growing up to be a handsome young man:) You've got competition, Dewey!

Licks n wags,
Oorvi

Moma heard us watching the snake video and told us we were NOT to get any ideas. She is in charge of the snakes around here, and NOT because she likes them. She just heard today that the rattlers are out. We have been short leashed on the trails. (grumble)

Your cottage is an amazing place and that Parker is an absolute doll. We loved this post! Made us smile and tail wag, it did.

Happy weekend,
Jake and Fergi

Dewster! That snake is so scary for me.
It looks like you had fun at the lake though and your little Parker is getting big!

Sticks and water are a combo made in doggie heaven, dontcha think, Dewey?

Glad your Gram and Pa are treatin' you kindly and takin' you to a cool swimmin' hole. This heat is for the birds and us furry ones need some relief!

I'll shake a paw with Bo for ya!
