Kali is going to school

First take a look at this video

then look at this


I hope they have better luck than I’ve had with Kali. She’s very stubborn (gotta be the Scottie in her) and won’t listen.

  1. We worry about those snakes too. I didn’t know there was training though.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your human. 🙂

    • I’ll let you all know when it’s done. It’s very close to home and if they allow pix, I’ll post. Hopefully I can get pictures in before they get over the shock of a Scottie with a camera.

  2. can I send my mom to snake-training? she screamed like hell at 0:26…. and there was just Kali’s tail in the bush…. but I hope nothing will happen to you, I hope the snakes will stay away from your crib.

  3. First thing SHE thought of was snakes! Kali looks very scottie to us. Maybe going to school would be good for her. She could avoid being bitten and point them out to the rest of you.

    Laughed at the one trained cat.

  4. I can’t say that I am not stubborn either 😦

  5. Oh Doggie, hope the school works for her, don’t need no stinking vet bills for viper bites. We gots garden snakes sometimes, but we stay back and bark till Dad comes out and throws them over in the pasture behind us!

  6. Mom gave a large yelp the last time she encountered a snake in the yard, i don’t think that we have rattlers, but we harmless? snakes. We do have bufo toads that can kill large dogs by spraying them with venom. We hope that Kali is a good student. She is Scottie so that doesn’t bode well for learning.

  7. Wow. We have rattlesnakes near the weekend house, let us all know if it works. If it does, Noodle might be taking a trip to New River.

  8. Don’t want to burst your bubble but… the hard core terriers, they seek revenge. Some take the shock as a personal affront BY the snake, and therefore, ALL snakes must be hunted down and made to pay.

    I hope for your sake Kali isn’t one of them!

  9. Will Kaci be attending on behalf of all 3 of you?

  10. Oh boy… I hope this works. Scruffy tried to take on the racoons recently. She chased them into the pool and was NOT having any part of them in her yard. They were twice her size too. Mr. Fox loves going in bushes looking for critters too.

    • Kali shouldn’t be tangling with raccoons, either (without MY help) but we’ve never seen one here. One slip up with a snake….

      • Not to be an animal hater but is there anything you put in your yard to ward these things off or off them? Poor Kali is just being a dog. I feel for her. I hope the school works.

  11. OMD that is such a worry, hope the school works as we would hate to see her get bitten. xxxoxxx

  12. O.K. I need that but we don’t call the locals: scorpions, spiders, bees, wasps, centipedes, toads, and rattlesnakes we call them bipeds the neighbors who carry lethal poison or venom.

  13. GOOOD LORDY!!!! Get away from that thing!!!!!! She’s fearless. WOOOOOOOOOweeeeeeeeeI Actually, I’d love to sink my teeth into one of those thingeys and shake it to death.

    Uh….maybe not.

  14. OMD that’s scary! Mom says snakes taste like chicken BOL. But we seriously doubt she’s ever tried it. We hope school is successful. We’ve seen copperheads and rattlesnakes here but haven’t gotten close. We stick to tree rats and moles.

    • I know what would happen if Mom encountered one. “YOU GUYS PROTECT ME”. That sounds like the probable scenario, right?

      • I think that’s a given. Mom wouldn’t stick around long enough to even get the “protect me” out of her mouth. Peeps. *sigh*

  15. We don’t have snakes around here. It being all urban and concrete. When Donna disappears into a bush, I worry more about her eating something she is not supposed to. Happy snake-proofing Kali 😉

  16. Oh no… Snakes are SCARY!! We have never seen any near our house (thank dog) but they get them sometimes at Alex’s… Eastern brown snakes too… VERY venomous!

  17. So scary, hope snake school works out!
