I'm so sorry to hear about your snakes. That is a terrible loss.
And to reptiledude-
Dogs are NOT stupid. In fact, u could probably learn alot from dogs. For instance, compassion, forgiveness, and unconditional love, to name just a few. To say dogs are stupid is a blasphemy. I agree with Linds, it's the ppl who are stupid. There are not many creatures on this earth, including humans, that are better than dogs!
"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."-Unknown
