full circle in the hundred acre wood


Afternoon walks with Maggie are always interesting. her keen nose seeks out the wondrous and the macabre. Take this fellow, for example. Alone, waling along a newly plowed fire line, I would never have noticed it. But Maggie ran straight to it, ran in a circle, then looked at me with her “Oh wow, look what I found!” face, tail up and wagging. I could tell she was contemplating the snake’s head and partial vertebral column as a crunchy afternoon snack, so I quickly scooped it up.

I don’t know what other critter got this one. Buck speculated that he got exposed in some freezing weather, couldn’t move quickly, and became vulnerable and dead.


Speak. Leave a memory.
