Tomorrow is my birthday.  I worked last weekend so that I could have an extra long weekend this week.  Who wants to work on their birthday?  But my birthday is Thursday, and I didn't really want to take Thursday off then work Friday - so a 4 day weekend it is! ...continue reading "Not So Photogenic"

My leopard geckos, in general, are pretty low maintenance pets - especially compared to my high energy dogs!  That doesn't mean, though, that I don't get a lot of enjoyment out of keeping them.  One of my favorite things about keeping reptiles is that I really enjoy setting up their tanks.   ...continue reading "Aurora’s New Tank Setup"


Happy 2016!  I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start.  The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year.  The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch.  We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"

ppppI'm going to ::try:: to keep my 'Wordless" Wednesday posts a bit more wordless this month.  We'll see how that goes.  This week, I wanted to share a couple of new pictures of my leopard geckos, Aurora and Miyuki! ...continue reading "New Gecko Pictures"

pppp1How crazy is it that today is the first day of 2016?  I hope everyone had a fun, safe New Years Eve last night.

2015, especially the last half of the year, was a big year for us here at Paw Print!  We started off the year with five pets - the geckos (Aurora and Miyuki), the rabbits (Barnaby and Poppet), and Kitsune.  Probably one of the biggest changes to our pack was in September, when we gained our newest pack member, Fenrir...continue reading "Looking Back at 2015"
