Tonight I went outside to water my garden and the neighbors dog chased a snake into my yard. Hmmmmm . . . . . . . . . why does that snake have to stay around in my yard? Just because I have a dog house doesn't mean that it has to sleep under it! I looked up the name for phobia of snakes as I believe I have this. It is a little worse now that I have to deal with a snake appearance almost everyday. I need to start carrying my rake with me - just in case it makes an appearance I will have some defense!
