Three months went by and Sandra was bathing Romona as Criss came in from walking the dogs. "Hey how was the walk?"she asked. "Wonderful untill Chicklet saw a cat that she wanted to chase after she nearly pulled my arm out of its shocket" Criss replied rubbing his shoulder. "Well I'm getting this little sweet heart ready for bed. Come on sweetie". Sandra picked her up and wrapped her in a towl as she took her into the nursery. For some reason Chicklet followed and laid down under the crib. "That's weird Chicklet has been doing that lately laying under the crib"Sandra remarked putting Romona in. "Maybe she's making sure the baby's all right kind of what she did with her puppies"Criss thought. "Maybe that motherly instict is still with her,"Sandra remarked.
"Should we leave her in here Criss?". "Why not I'll leave the door open"Criss stated. As everyone slept a snake snuck in and headed towards the nursery. Chicklet woke up as she heard the rattling of the snake. She barked at it but the snake coiled nearly biting her. Romona started to cry and the snake heard it. The snake started to slither into the crib but Chicklet bit the snake's tail and got him out. Upstairs Oso heard something downstairs and went down. He went into the nursery and saw the snake coiling ready to strike at Chicklet. Chicklet was trying not to get bit but trying to keep the baby safe. Oso looked at the crib and figure out how to lower the bar. He got up on his hind legs and licked the baby claming her. The light in the living room came on and Criss came in and saw the snake coiled in the corner trying to strike Chicklet. Criss grabbed the baby diaper bucket and put it over the snake catching it.
Oso got back on the floor as Criss picked up Romona. "It's all right you're all right". Sandra came running down as Criss was on the phone. "Yes a rattle snake in my house can you send someone to get it. No I don't think anyone got bit thank you" and hung up. "What happened Criss is Romona all right?". "She's fine thanks to Chicklet and Oso a rattlesnake got into the house"Criss said holding Romona in his arms. "Where is it?"she asked. "In the nursery covered with the diaper pail. Chicklet was keeping it away from Romona as Oso kept Romona calm"Criss replied. Sandra bent down as Oso and Chicklet were laying there side by side. "Thanks you two I guess you two are her guardin angels" and gave them both a kiss on the head.
