Copperhead Bites - Are They Usually Fatal to Dogs?

We all love our pets dearly - our cats, dogs, whatever. They're a kind of extended family members for many of us. One day, I was visiting a friend, when I received a surprise greeting of sorts from the family pet.

After first-hand exposure to what I felt sure would prove (in a day or two) a catastrophic event, I wrote this QuirkyScience article: Outcome of a Dog Bitten by a Copperhead .

The article is (hopefully) informative and is attested to by 18 comments. Certainly the outcome of the Jack Russell - Copperhead Battle Royale I experienced is heartening. But why did the dog survive? In fact, it might not have, except for one thing.

If you are aware of any incident along these lines and have not already done so, why not add your comment to the 18?

I see I commented on the Quirky science article but not the Personapaper teaser!
