Mrs. Fraidey Mouse family.
Got a lick & chase.
Small tail hanging from tightly-closed mouth.
I want to paint Sophie but I have a few problems with “my model”.
I couldn’t fit the whole snake into the photo because she’s about 54″ long! I wondered how long she could hang there, bouncing on the wall. The branch in front isn’t holding her up. She held half her length upright! I’ll admit it was a little freaky to see!
I am struck by the same oddness when seeing snakes climb trees.
There’s something a little sinister about a five foot snake hanging off a tree branch, hunting for birds’ nests.
Sophie thought perhaps I was hiding something interesting under there somewhere but…. It seemed just a little out of the ordinary. However… Never underestimate the curious nature of a beagle.
Sophie will always follow her nose without hesitation!
She’s quite good at landing her huge, loving paw on top of that little beagle tail as it flies by.
I am sure you can imagine the shrill indignant howls as Sophie’s suddenly stopped short of her destination beneath the closest chair.
There’s a certain sense of justice in their “play”…
