OMG! We were out walking Bella in the desert and she walked by a bush and a big rattler hissed REAL LOUD at her. I yelled at her "No Bella" "get away" and she moved on and I followed her to keep her moving. Dan took his "snake remover stick" and walked it away, about 1/2 mile. There was NO WAY I was gonna try and take a pic but I seen how big it was when Dan was walking away with it. It was about 3 1/2 feet. Good thing Bella is about 99% obedient. Its still warm enough here to warrant us REALLY watching her when out walking. That was just too much excitement. Excitement that I sure don't want. Now we really keep an eye on her by checking out the bush before she does. I'll be glad when the snakes start to hibernate.
Now for the pictures.........Bella got a present in the mail. She had to check it out while Dan opened it. My friend Dawn sent her some nummies. She was very curious about the box. She knew what the package was when Dan took it out of the box. Her favorite nummies.
This is our destination. We are now on the Colorado Indian Reservation. Just in case you get stopped for being on the reservation, Dan and I had gone to Parker, AZ to purchase the yearly 25 buck sticker so we could ride on the res. Dan and I have been here several times before. Dan named this place "The Moon" because of how different it looked from the rest of the desert I guess. It is strange looking.
