Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So as you guys know Finnick (Now Shadow) was rehomed a few weeks ago. He lives on a farm and has been doing SO great with his new family.
He was bitten by a pretty nasty rattlesnake a few days ago. His new mom called to tell me he was going to be ok and was given some anti-venom along with other meds to help him out. The emergecy vet said this is about the dozenth time he has seen rattlesnake bites this year and not all dogs are lucky enough to survive. This little guy seems to be a pretty tough fighter though!
His muzzle was swollen and reached 21 inches around at its worst.
Thankfully the snake has been captured and killed. I can't imagine having something like that around my house!!
Here are some pictures:

Holy crap! That's a pretty good sized Eastern Diamondback, Finnick is really lucky! Glad to hear he's going to be ok, and I am super paranoid about that happening to one of our dogs. We get several different species of rattlesnakes around here.

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

It was just over 6ft long. My thought process is...if there was one, there is bound to be 100 more! I am not a big fan of snakes at all...and would probably freak out if i ever had to deal with something like that!

Poor boy! Glad he pulled through! I like snakes and hate seeing them killed though. Sad I've only seen one other diamondback that size.

No, it actually took a few days to find it, then they shot it with a bow and arrow. I dont think they are going to let him out of their site now.
