Dobby's Identity Crisis.

It's time to make the announcement.
To face the truth that I have been trying to ignore.
To suck it up and just admit it...

Dobby. Is. A. Girl.

Yes. It's true.
My little Dobby Sue.

Dobby is quickly coming up on "his" one year birthday,
and "he" is not showing the signs of being a male 
(aka no male parts),
which should be clearly apparent by now.
So, it's with a bit of remorse, that I will now call Dobby a "she."

See, when you buy these little scaly cuddle-bugs, 
you don't know whether you're picking out a boy or a girl.
Dobby just looked like a boy to me when I got him. 
So I decided he should be a boy.


Despite the fact that Dobby has been going through an identity crisis, 
it's safe to say that SHE has handled the whole thing quite well.
In fact, her brand new supply of cockroaches should be arriving any day, 
and I can't wait to see her munch them to pieces.
Isn't that a comforting thought?
I thought so. 

Dobby Sue, we love you.

I've had the same thing happen. We adopted our first cat from SeaWorld after she was retired from a show. One night, she jumped down from the couch to clean herself, and I saw a little lightbulb. I started screaming,

"Honey, she's a boy! Oh, my gosh. That's his penis! SHE'S A BOY! SHE HAS A PENIS!" Hahaha! I was laughing so hard.

Apparently, SeaWorld missed a very important detail about our little performer. Oops!

Dobby is such a pretty reptile! I've always wanted to have a pet like that. What are they like as pets? :)


Jamie said...

When we got our kitten 6 years ago they told us that she was a we named her Jack. A few weeks later we realized he didn't have any male parts haha

How funny! My aunt and uncle used to have a cat named Cat...because they had no idea what it was (and apparently didn't care to find out)!

Stephine said...

Oh nooooo! Well at least SHE has a cool name :)

Unknown said...

Stumbled across your blog today... and BAM! What a post opener! ;) So I see you have a she-Dobby! Her name rocks, by the way!

Faith said...

Haha too funny!

Amanda said...

Dobby is a gender neutral name, me thinks! :)

A Little Piece of Me said...

Aww, so cute! We were the same way with our rabbits. We would get them really young before you could tell and name them and start calling them a "he" or "she" then realize it's the wrong sex. lol. She's so pretty. I love hearing about her. :)

Unknown said...

oh no.... i'm cracking up. i just can't help it!! Oh, Dobby. Short for, um, Dobbetta? Sure, there we go! Dobbetta Sue. :)

DSR said...

So funny! And now I can't get the image of the androgynous "Pat" from Saturday Night Live out of my head.

I always considered my Iguana's boys too, and hated it when I was wrong. I assume their male parts are the same as bearded dragons..? I started naming my animals gender neutral names like Pat. Just kidding, but I did name my female dog after the male actor Shia LaBeuff.
