My Slippery Snake Tail

I would now like to tell you how I became a hero one day in Subiaco’s Richard Diggins Park.

It was a lovely sunny day. The kids and I were happily playing with a ball when we heard a rustle under the gum tree. We looked around but we could not see anything unusual. The kids threw my ball across the park and I raced after it. Suddenly I heard the kids screaming and they were running around everywhere.

I looked around, and there, just near the swings, was a snake!  It was long, black and red. Its fangs were shooting in and out. Its coat was slippery and slimy and its face looked very fierce. It grew bigger and BIGGER and BIGGER as I looked at it.

I put aside all my fears and called out to the kids “Don’t worry I will get it”.  I ran as fast as I could under the swings, around the rocking beetle, under the picnic tables and through the bushes, chasing it. As it slid over branches and under twigs and through the prickly bushes I kept following it as fast as I could.

Finally I caught it! I grabbed the screaming little creature around the neck and dragged it to show the kids. i was all excited, happy and proud. The kids all clapped and called out “Thank you KoKo. You are a very brave dog”.

My mates and all the parents flocked to the park to hear about my heroism.
