Tragedy for a Friend

It is with a heavy heart that I post about Cosmo. Cosmo was a staffordshire bull terrier who lived with a family friend of my pawrents. They actually breed show dogs and Cosmo was new to the show scene and was already becoming a champion.
They live on about 5 acres on this beautiful fenced in property complete with a lake, several other dogs, and 2 miniature horses. Cosmo was out playing with his sister Fiona, when tragedy struck. He was bit by a snake. A very BIG snake. Within just a few minutes, Cosmo had passed away. His Human daddy rushed him to the vet right away but it was too late. The vet estimates that the snake was at least a 10 footer, and possibly a rattlesnake! Poor Cosmo didn't stand a chance. He was taken from this earth much too soon.
Please pray for Cosmo's family as they struggle to cope with this awful awful tragedy.

RIP Cosmo. You will be missed by so many.

oh no..this is such a sad story. we can't imagine how scary the encounter must have been for Cosmo.
Oh...this makes us worry about my Uncle Gilli in Taiwan even more. The weather is warming up. It is snake season again. Grandpa and Grandma don't get 10 footer in their garden but they do get poisonous snakes sometimes.
Our thoughts go out to Cosmo's family.
Stay safe, Bruschi and Ebby!

Poor Cosmo... That sounds so scary... I don't think I have snakes that size in my garden, but I'll be more careful from now on.
