Eastern Kingsnake

How many times in canine history has a dog been bitten directly on the nose by a snake? Our dog is certainly trying hard to increase the average. Today she discovered an Eastern Kingsnake in the pine needles under our euonymous bushes in the back yard. Here's a picture of one (not my own--I didn't get the camera in time.) Note to grandparents: it is not venomous. Note from wife: I am not a professional snake-identifier and thus could be wrong about this. Note from me: Wife was too scared to get proper view of the specimen and thus has no right to be criticizing husband's quite reliable form of judgment in this matter.
