Then Eileen Gotke showed up, so I went to greet her. She told me that she had brought out a crate for her soon to be adopted puppy, Callie aka Rita Coolidge. "I want to put it in her pen so she can get used to it before I take her home," Eileen explained. We went to the puppy pen and played with Callie and her new roommate Princess Leaha. Twenty minutes later Eileen put Callie's little harness on her and took her for a long walk so I went to help Tony pick up poop.
When we had only two more dog pens to clean I saw T. take out his camera in the alley next to Ben Stiller and Gracie and start shooting pictures of the ground. "What are you doing, Tone?" I asked. He laughed and then he bent down and picked up a big snake! "Yikes!" I half-hollered.
Then Tony told me that it was just a grass snake that was harmless which didn't help calm my nerves at all. Here are a couple of Tone's pictures of our unwanted visitor.
