Too Many Snakes

English: Moses and Aaron Appear before Pharaoh...

English: Moses and Aaron Appear before Pharaoh (Ex. 6:26-30, 7:1-10) Русский: Моисей и Аарон перед фараоном (Исх. 6:26-30, 7:1-10) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

So person, a whole week ago Pharaoh was being even meaner to the Israelites, and they were mad at Moses and Moses was mad at God. So is God finally going to give Pharaoh what for, or not?

God told Moses what? That He would redeem Israel with an outstretched arm and mighty acts of judgment? Okay God, bring it on. Give that mean old Pharaoh what for!

I’m listening to the story, person. Can’t I help cheer God on?

God told Moses to tell the Israelites that He would take them out of Egypt and bring them to the land that He had promised to their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But the Israelites wouldn’t listen to Moses because of their discouragement and cruel bondage.

Then God told Moses to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. But Moses said if the Israelites wouldn’t listen to him then why would Pharaoh listen.

Why doesn’t God just come down and give Pharaoh what for?

I’m listening person, but I really want to see God zap Pharaoh.

Well God convinced Moses and his brother Aaron to go talk to Pharaoh, and said to them that when Pharaoh tells them to perform a miracle that Aaron should throw his staff down and it will become a snake.

Was that like the snake that was in our driveway awhile back?

I’m listening.

Aaron threw his staff down and it became a snake, but the Egyptian magicians turned their staffs into snakes too.

Yikes, that’s a lot of snakes.

What? Aaron’s snake swallowed up all the other snakes? So there was only one snake?

So did Pharaoh let the Israelites go?

What! He didn’t? His heart was hard and he wouldn’t listen? That’s not fair.

I don’t think Pharaoh is very scared of snakes. So when is God really going to give Pharaoh what for? He sure is taking His time.

I bet Pharaoh would be scared of my snake. Can we go outside now? I need to see if that snake came back to our driveway so I can send it over to Pharaoh.

The Snake that Ate Too Much

Yucca shootAwhile back I was really worried about the big snake in my yard. I was afraid that it was going to reach out and get me when I wasn’t looking.

Well, I think that snake got something, but I’m not sure what. Whatever it was, that snake didn’t know when to quit. It ate and ate and it got so full it couldn’t even stand up anymore.






Look what happened to it.

And there were other snakes too.

There must have been some really good snake food because whatever it was, they all ate it.

I think it might have been popcorn they ate, and when they were hanging out in the sun it popped inside them.

Whatever it was, I’m glad they ate it because now they’re so heavy that they’ll never be able to get me. I can move faster than all of them.

But I think I learned something from this. No more popcorn for me. Can you imagine what I’d look like if it popped inside me?

Nope. I’m leaving it out for snake bait.

Strange Visitors

Bongo with Toy SnakeWe had some visitors yesterday. Actually we had one visitor and then another visitor came over to see the first visitor. And they both stayed in the yard and didn’t come in the house to see me.

And my person didn’t let me out of the house to see them. I was not pleased.

At first I couldn’t figure out what my person was doing outside. She usually comes right in the house when she gets home from somewhere, but this time she hung around outside. I think she got her camera out, but I couldn’t see for sure. What could be so interesting outside our garage?

Then the neighbor came over. I don’t know this neighbor, but my person does. He comes up on weekends sometimes and stays at my friend Timmy’s house – the dog that lives across the street – but he doesn’t go for walks with Timmy so I just know Timmy’s regular people.

When a person that I don’t know comes in the yard I bark. I have to protect my house after all. So when this neighbor came over I jumped up and down on the couch in front of the window and barked.

You know what happened? My person ignored me. And I still didn’t know what they were doing out there.

My person finally came in the house and I found out what was going on. Someone had come up to the house to visit me and my person wouldn’t let my visitor inside the house. I am so bummed.

Snake Alert

Yucca shootThere’s a snake in my yard! It’s getting bigger by the day. I think an invisible snake charmer is calling it out of my yucca plant.

Maybe it’s good that it’s coming out of the plant. At least I know where it is. That would be terrible if I happened to walk by that yucca plant, you know, getting ready to do my business or something – and that snake jumped out at me.

Did you jump when I said that? I’m getting scared just thinking about it.

The worst thing is that a second snake is starting to come out of that plant now. How many more snakes might be hiding in there? I hope that invisible snake charmer gets busy and calls all of them out.

In the meantime, I think my person is going to have to take me for extra walks on my trails instead of letting me out in the yard. I hardly ever see snakes on my trails.

Hey person, I don’t think you want to take a chance that that snake might get me. I don’t care if it’s dark. I think you’d better take me out on my trails right now.

Squeaky Snake

Bongo and SnakeSqueaky toys are my favorite. I love to bite down on them and listen to the noise they make. One of my best squeaky toys is a long snake. It has squeaks at both ends so I can squeak the head and I can squeak the tail. What’s even better is that it has replaceable squeakers – so it never runs out of squeak. I just have to remind my person to put new squeakers in it sometimes.

When I first got the snake I wasn’t sure what to do with it, so I took it outside. I like taking my toys outside. My person caught on to this so now she makes me drop my toys before she’ll open the door. Anyway, she hadn’t yet got smart about this when I got the snake and I was able to get it outside. I had a lot of fun with it out there.

I wouldn’t tell my person what I did with it, and since it was new she didn’t want me to lose it. She went out in the yard looking for it. She had to look real hard for it, but I guess I didn’t bury it deep enough. She found it by the tail that was still sticking out of the ground.
