Well, my wifes lab took a bite from a copperhead this evening. We spent the last four days camping at a state park on a lake. No snakes. Came home, let dogs out to pee and poor mad dog promptly got bit on the nose. Walked over to see what the fuss was about to find Mad rubbing her nose on the ground and the dang gsd literally jumping in and out dodging strikes from the snake. We gave Mad a big dose of benadryl and put her in the spare human bed for the night. Going to the vet in the morning to see about antibiotics to prevent infection. Fingers crossed, but her breathing is fairly normal so we think she'll be fine. Nature is against us this week. Racoons got into the chicken coop while we were gone and now this.
