My American bulldog SAM was bitten by one in my back yard a couple of years ago. 2 vials of anti venom and $1200 later he was fit as a fiddle. Beautiful creatures, but not a fan.

Our dogs have taken on a beaver, a raccoon, and several rattlesnakes.
They won all those. (Beaver is tasty, by the way.)
Then they tried a nest of cottonmouth moccassins. Not so happy; the dogs
got all swole up and sad looking. Significant vet bill.
This year one of them tried a copperhead. Same result.
And the other one tried a rattlesnake and lost. Same result.
Finally they seem to have learned to alert us but don't attack snakes.
Good result!

Huh. Why does the picture link to a video titled "Dr. Dennis Marks honored by DPG 25 June 2011"?

Good question! Fixed now, plus pictures by Gretchen showing the rattles. -jsq
