    I hope that snake didn't get fat eating your chickens' eggs!

    I don’t think (but have no verification) that water moccasins eat eggs. But, whatever the case may be- that particular snake will not be getting fat on anything-anymore,

    I didn’t know dogs could/would kill snakes especially venomous ones.

    Some dogs will definitely kill all snakes they encounter - even venomous ones. In this instance, she had wounded the snake before I even knew what was going on. I intervened and held Gracie back while DH finished the snake off. (That was such a big snake that I know he had the ability to unload a huge batch of venom into my dog.) After that, Gracie re-killed it again and again! I have video of her shaking it violently and tossing it around. As beautiful as she is - she is a vermin killing machine!

    She is a great asset to us. She's an English Shepherd - the (almost) perfect farm dog in my opinion. :)

    Only "almost"? What is the perfect farm dog in your opinion?

    Gracie is the perfect farm dog with one exception. She is such a vermin eradicator that anything that is small and moving fast is on her menu....baby chickens are small and move fast. Generally, they do not invade "her" yard - but occasionally they slip through the fence - they don't often have the ability to slip back out. Her only flaw. :(
