Well, this may end up being a sad post. Unfortunately it is timing, but rather fitting.
I had my B post all planned out, but decided to change it. So today, B is for Bearded Dragons.
If you do not know what they are, they're a type of iguana. I have two, a male and a female. Well... the female got sick and has since passed away.
I'm looking for pics of her that we have somewhere. She was beautiful. Gold scales, rust colored spots here and there. When they spoke to each other (by bobbing their heads) the male reminds me of a Head Banger. My husband says he always gets an image of the male being like a spray paint can. You hear the "ticka-ticka-ticka" of the ball inside. :D My little female would then respond to the male with slow, graceful dips of her head. Every bit the lady. *Sigh*
When we took her to the vet, she said it could very well be the "false spring" we had that messed her up. She suddenly lost weight and we had to force feed her. Bearded Dragons are difficult pets to begin with. To bring a sick one back to health is even more so. We had hope, but didn't know what to expect.
At any rate, yes this is sad, we're sad. We miss her already. But we didn't even know how old she was. We got the two of them from some friends a little over a year ago and they had rescued them from an abandoned home where the two little Draggies were in a type of forced hibernation. So who knows how old they are/were.
So to Thayla, my beautiful Bearded Dragon, this is dedicated to her. :)
