Sneaky Snake!!!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  We've been having a string of very hot temperatures, as I mentioned the other day, so we've been getting our exercise in early in the day!  Our backyard is nice and shady in the morning, so it's still cool enough for us to play out there with Mom after our walk!  Things got pretty exciting over the weekend - it went something like this!

I was out exploring the yard when ...

"Hey!  Hey, Mom!  What's that behind you?!?"

I saw it, plain as day!  It was a Sneaky Snake!  And it went flying through the air!  It launched right over my head, so I ran after it, grabbed it, and went racing through the yard!

"I've got you, you Sneaky Snake you!!!"

I ran with it, and ran with it, and ran with it some more!

"Stop struggling, Sneaky Snake!"

When I was fairly certain I had it subdued, Mom said it was time to go in and get some water.  I thought I had taught the Sneaky Snake a lesson and left it laying on the deck.

I got a good drink, and was ready to start helping Mom around the house.  I followed her downstairs and was just poking around, when I saw something go soaring into the Library!  It was the Sneaky Snake!  It must have followed us inside somehow!

I ran into the Library and dove on it!  I grabbed it ...

Me, in the Library, with the Sneaky Snake

... and carried it upstairs, into the Living Room.

"Time to teach you a lesson, Sneaky Snake!"

I shook him and chewed him so hard he squeaked!  Then I started tossing him around - and he attacked Mom!!!

"Argh!  Help!  He's got me, Mags!  Help!"
"Oh, no, you DON'T, Sneaky Snake!  Let go of my mom!!!"

It took some doing, but I was able to save Mom!  She was really proud of me.  I went into the Kitchen to tell Cammie about everything - and the Sneaky Snake slipped out of my grasp and tried to go after her!!!

"Try it, Sneaky Snake, and I'll cover the floor with your fluffy snake guts!"

She was in conference with Big Mean Kitty; I think Sneaky Snake was afraid to take them both on, so he slithered off somewhere.  I'm not sure where - Mom offered us girls cookies and said playtime was over for a while.  

You heard that right - "playtime".  I save her from a Sneaky Snake attack and she calls it "playtime".  Sometimes I don't think Mom fully appreciates all the work I do around here!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  3. Oh wow! My daddy would be afraid of that snake! He hates them; even the stuffed kind! MaddiethePug

  4. Cool snake - is it a squeaker too? He sure looks like a lot of fun, but Mom, the spoil sport, says we would probably just chew right through it:(

    Hope you get to have more playtime with Sneaky Snake.
