Little Mister Dobby

I may not have babies,
or cute puppies
or even fuzzy kittens.
But I am a mama to a bearded dragon.
His name is Dobby.
Yes, like the house elf from Hogwarts. 
And despite his spikes, claws, and scales— he is very cuddly.
He's growing like a champ.

Just a little baby! His body was so thin and he had hardly any beard.

December 24, 2011
3 weeks later. Getting bigger! Notice how small he is in my hand. And yes... that's a chihuahua named Mister Oso who is very curious about Mister Dobby!

His beard is beginning to form!

January, 2011
Sitting like a proper boy at his perch. The beard is coming in!

February 11, 2011
2 months after I got him. Look how much bigger he is in my hand!
And that is my son, Dobby.
a.k.a. Sir Dobson.
a.k.a. the best lizard EVERRR.

I feel like this is such a fitting pet for you!
A kitten or a puppy just wouldn't do it ;)

I'd be terrified of having a bearded dragon so go you lol

Happy Tuesday, giiiirl!

I love the one of him perched. Too funny! He has such pretty coloring, I haven't seen one as handsome as him..

I LOVE bearded dragons. I always have had iguanas, but my next reptile choice has always been a bearded dragon!

I like the picture where you can see your bouncy balls in the background! What a unique hobby! It would be neat to see the collection sometime :)

Well isn't he just the cutest little thing ever! Glad to see that he's growing big and healthy - I know from experience how difficult it can be at times to care for lizards. Anyway, he's adorable! And I love the name you gave him!

I love lizards, and yours is quite cute.

I'm hoping to get a bearded dragon for myself later this year.

Hi Aunie! :) Its Gabi! Hummmmmmm, what a cute little lizard!!! Where did you get him from??? My boyfriend is crazy about lizards and that would make a happy pressie! Of course Id have to find one here in Brazil, but at least...perhaps you could help me with that. (What kind of lizard is that? How much bigger will it get?? ) I know we have to have the IBAMA permission to keep wild animals. Any ways...;)

I'm not going to lie. I kind of scared of reptiles, but... his name is Dobby, so how could I NOT like him?!

Eesh said...

Cool stuff kiddo! If I weren't so afraid that my pup would try to kill it, I'd totally get one. You have the coolest pet!!!! xx

Wow how awesome! I never thought to own a lizard before--my mom hates things like them and refuses to allow me to own any. I have all the fuzzy things instead...and fish... Maybe one day there will be a lizard too! But I doubt I could come up with a cooler name haha!

Cat said...

Wow, he's getting so big. And I love that I can see a box of bouncy balls in the background

Melissa said...
