I'm alive - Well, for the most part.  Around the end of the week last week I started feeling really run down.  It had been a pretty busy week, so I originally thought that maybe I had just overdone things a bit.  I figured, since the weekend was coming, that I'd have plenty of time to relax and unwind after my busy week. ...continue reading "Of Pets and the Flu"

Tomorrow is Halloween!  Are you doing anything to celebrate?  My fiance bought way more candy than I think we are going to need.  We live on a pretty busy street, so in past years haven't gotten many trick or treaters.  Despite that, we're planning on dressing up the pups and sitting outside to give out candy.  Since I'll have my hands full tomorrow, I took Halloween pictures of all the pets a few days early. ...continue reading "Happy Halloween from the Paw Pack"

661Last week I posted some new pictures of my younger Leopard gecko, Miyuki, and mentioned that I have a couple of pet birthdays coming up.  Yesterday was one of them - Aurora turned 7 years old!

I know everyone says this, but I can't believe that 7 years have passed so quickly!  ...continue reading "Happy Hatchday Aurora!"

Miyuki4I hope everyone is having a great week!  September is a busy month for us as far as pet stuff goes.  We have a couple of pet birthdays coming up and potentially some big news coming towards the end of the month!

Miss Miyuki, having celebrated her 4th birthday back in June, isn't one of our birthday critters this month.  Last night I wanted to do a photo shoot with one of our pets and, as you can see, it ended up being Miyuki!  For "wordless" Wednesday I wanted to focus on one of the pets that isn't celebrating a birthday this month. ...continue reading "Miyuki Update"

This is going to be my last post for my summer reptile series.  But have no fear, I'll (of course) continue posting about reptiles, my reptiles especially, regularly just like I've always done.  This summer I've already posted a general introduction to reptile care, then a more in dept look at the care needs of Leopard Geckos.  Today I want to do something different, and write a bit about my experiences keeping reptiles as pets. ...continue reading "Proper #ReptileCare Makes Keeping Reptiles Fun"

WordlessImageI was recently tagged by the lovely Anne from Whiskers to Paws to take part in the 8 photos of happiness tag.  Started on Ariel's Little Corner of the Internet, the idea is to share 8 pictures that represent happiness.  Hopefully the pictures I selected make you smile, I know I had a lot of fun looking through all my old photos. ...continue reading "8 Photos of Happiness"

Last month I wrote a bit about how rewarding keeping reptiles can be for owners who are prepared to meet their care needs.  Although I've kept quite a few species of reptiles in the past, in this post I'm going to focus on the species I'm currently keeping - Leopard geckos.  Bringing a reptile home for the first time can be a harrowing experience.  Most people would have at least a general idea of what they'd need when bringing home a new puppy or kitten, but  what do you need to ensure your scaly new friend will live a happy, healthy life with you?    ...continue reading "#ReptileCare Checklist: What You Need to Keep Your New Leopard Gecko Happy and Healthy"

66I totally had another post planned for today, but it didn't pan out.  So instead, after work on Monday, I spent some time taking new pictures of Aurora.  Back in June I posted pictures of Miyuki's paw prints, and way back in May of 2013 it all started with Haku.  As of Monday, I now have prints of Aurora's paws too! ...continue reading "Aurora’s Paw Prints"

I'll try to keep this as wordless as possible today!  I just wanted to share a couple of new pictures that I took of the gecko girls and their tanks last weekend.  Miyuki seems to get frustrated if I keep her tank the same for too long.  She's usually good for a couple of weeks, then starts spending a lot of her time trying to escape.  I've been considering trying her in a bioactive set up, and/or possibly upgrading her to a bigger tank, but for now I just have to change things up every couple of weeks in an attempt to keep her entertained. ...continue reading "Gecko Tank Updates"
