Was definitely because of the small dog. They can also control the pressure of their bite. The harder they bite, the more venom injected. A fear thing with them. You can even get a dry bite. Probably a large rattler too. Big snake, more venom, small snake, less venom. Don't buy that BS about "the little ones are more potent". That's a shame though. If you still have small dog's it may pay to buy some anti venom. Not cheap. Out here it was $250.00 a vile 5 yrs ago.
