Michele CookIf you are squeamish about snakes, frogs or vomit, you should stop reading now.

This story involves all three.

The Dogs

It was a warm September evening. My husband and I did something we rarely do — we dressed up to go to dinner.

Him in slacks and a light blue button up shirt, me in my favorite pink dress. I had even curled my hair and made a respectable attempt at putting on makeup.

We were just finishing up a few things when there came an ungodly racket from the porch. The dogs were going bananas barking up storm.



This wasn't the "Someone's here" bark, nor the "Hey there are squirrels out here" bark, this was "Intruder, intruder, sound the alarm!" My husband raced out the door to see what was going on, a few seconds later I heard him holler "SNAKE!"
