Dog got bitten on the paw by an adder on Sunday morning - so cold they really shouldn't have been out.

Happy to report he got the OK from the vets this morning :)  Close shave!!

Wow mate, an adder? Did you catch or see it? Glad Treacle is okay. Love the name as well, did you choose that?

No Ray - we didn't see the damned snake at all and Treacle didn't yelp when bitten either, so we aren't entirely sure when and where it happened.  Poor little sod walked over a mile back to the car (bad idea!) without any complaints apart from a limp - we thought he'd just picked up a thorn or bashed his leg as he always goes crashing around.

No we didn't choose the name - he is a rescue boy who had a very hard time in his first two years :(  The missus has done the most fantastic job on him with tons and love and her time so you would have no idea in what a poor state he came to us in.  He has great spirit and is an inspiration to me as to what you can overcome!!
