On Sunday I took a hike with Bert. It was wonderful. Lots of sights, sounds, adventure, and even a scary moment. When you get to the part of the video you will see Bert running back to me with a worried look on his face. Prior to that I heard Bert make a sound. It was not a bark or a yelp, it was a sound I had not heard him make before. When he got to me he stood behind me shaking. I did check him to see if he was injured. He was not. Then I thought, "I wonder if..." So I headed the short distance from where he came. Bert WOULD NOT come with me, he just stood there shaking, watching me. I proceeded with caution. What I found was a Great Basin Rattlesnake! I took it's picture, from a safe distance and returned to Bert. This really is great news. You may remember that a couple of years ago Goose and Bert took Snake Aversion Training together. I know that it worked for Goose as three times in our hiking we came across a Rattlesnake and Goose each time alerted me to the snake and he avoided it. Well it seems that Bert paid attention in class as well. So come along with me on a beautiful Sunday hike.
