Dobbye the Biter

There are dead snakes all over my yard. At least I think they are dead, but to make certain, and to keep in practice, I bite them once in a while. Several months ago I bit one that was going into my hot tub and hot water came out. That was pretty weird. Recently, I bit one that was suspended very conveniently at mouth level. It was just too tempting.

Just a little test bite

Cold water came spraying out, it was very dramatic! The ducks loved it, but Stacy made it stop.

It was fun while it lasted

It was such a tiny hole.

Here’s a video that shows how nice the effect was before Stacy shut it off:

I bite all sorts of stuff, mostly it’s green.

Sedums are juicy.

Pots are like food dishes, aren’t they?

I bite my doorknob, but that’s kind of an accident.

I bite my pool noodles, but I don’t eat the foam bits. Not very many, anyway.

All the colors taste the same.

I like to bite my other toys, too. Most balls don’t last more than a few minutes.

Check out the teeth. They are biting machines!

I especially like to bite things in my pool.

This rope holds my pool steps up.

My teeth rest ever-so-gently at the edge of the pool.

Ever so gentle

Biting runs in the family. Here are my parents at home. Can you see how their shed is lined with metal grid?

I’m begging you to not look at the next photos.

Close your eyes!

Close your eyes!

Don’t look at this next one. There is only circumstantial evidence linking me to this damage.

Some people think this looks like a bite hole.

You can look again because I didn’t have ANYTHING to do with this next one.

I'm nowhere near this leak.

The leak is way over THERE!

This leak stopped right away, too. It was even better than the last sprinkler!

Now that hose has big black snakes on it, just like my pool edge.

Thank you, Freecycle!

  1. I know Stacy might have a different opinion, but I like your antics! Loved her last “insinuation”. You make me smile Dobbye!
