Farewell Old Friend...

Last week we had to say goodbye to our longtime companion "Squirt". He was our 3rd Iguana, who was about 10 years old who we had the priviledge of watching him grow from a little pip-squeak only 10" long. Quite a curious character with a vibrant personality, Squirt always greeted us and had a real special relationship with my husband. They had a daily routine and special communication between just the two of them. And when we brought out grapes - you never saw an animal dance like this - we would laugh so hard. As hard as husbandry of reptiles is, we were very lucky with Squirt and his elder brother, Peewee [who passed a couple years ago] - who both lived 10 or more years. We have many fond memories and will miss you dearly. The hardest thing is...we now have an empty's just us - and it's too quiet...

This is Dan holding Peewee - he was an old lazy lizard and didn't mind being held. We couldn't hold Squirt - we were just a tree to him.

Goodbye old friend. I won't hold a grudge about my finger...I will think of you every time I look at it : ) Sb
