I'm very sorry to hear your dog was bitten. I hope it's okay! Beautiful creatures aren't they, snakes? I have never been bitten by a venomous
snake (although too many times to count) but I have been bitten numerous times by the domesticated pet pythons I have had. It sure doesn't tickle!
Yes, my Dachshund is fine. The vet gave him some anti venom and he was good to go in a couple of days. I take him with me fishing and he got a bit too
curious with this Cottonmouth on the bank of the river that I fish at. The Cottonmouth didnt take a liking with him much and struck him on his mouth
- Needless to say, the bottom of his mouth (chin area) was swollen up like a golf ball for a few days. The swelling is gone now though.

I admit I'm afraid of almost all snakes. Even in zoos the freak me out. But I've never seen a demonstration like that of what it would do to a person.
It's very interesting and makes them even scarier. Fascinating video.

All good then. I used to have a dog named Toro, half irish wolfhound and half bullmastiff. She was the ultimate snake hunter! She would be by my
side, while I was doing work around the property, and so many times she pounced on taipans and shake them like crazy to kill them. I probably would
have been bitten if it wasn't for her! She died of old age my Toro darling RIP.
Im deathly scared of snakes! And that Russell's Viper has some huge nasty front teeth that has to be painful to get bitten by one of those snakes
(cringe) good video Here is one about a Russell's Viper and what its like to get bit by one..peace,sugarcookie1 S&F
