Dog Stake

Dog Stake

This lovely dog belongs to on of my husbands Cub pack helpers – I assume it is a whipet but am not really up on dog breds.

They came along to the end of year backwoods cooking in our garden and bought with them and amazing stake thing that screwed into the ground which they could then tie the do too!

I think this worked really well but only becuase it was a light framed dog who was very well behaved.

Snake Skin

I found this snake skin in the garden – this was a bit of a relief as we hadn’t seen any sign of the adders who normally live on the compost heap. Snakes shed their skins rather than a few cells at a time like us.

Here is the underside – note the scales are more rectangular than the top side.

This is the top side and you can actually see the snakes patterning – I don’t actually know what type of snake this belongs too.

My little girl was a bit worried that it was a dead snake so we had to lots of explaining which ended up in some very interesting conversations.
