Introducing, Carrot!

Several nights ago, as we were trying to get ready to go out to have dinner with Nathan and Nicole, I went out on the back porch to look for my flip flops and found this:223

Except it wasn’t dead at the time….and yes, it’s a copperhead!

So, now we have this:

229

I told Jackson to come up with a name, and the options he gave us were Richard or Carrot.  So, I think we’ll call him Carrot.

He’s supposed to have a reputation for killing snakes, so we’ll see how he does.  So far, all he’s managed to do it to get himself stuck in trees. Jackson really likes him though.

I wouldn't mind if I never see a snake alive again except for at the zoo. We went for a hike the other day and I was showing Josh some cool lizards - I found one sitting in a drainage pipe with just the tip of its head poking out and pointed it out to Josh until I saw its tongue stick out and realized it was no lizard. Glad you guys have a cat - it amazes me that those little creatures are so good against snakes.

You know our family has a bad history with copperheads! I hope carrot keeps everyone safe.
