Dragon life lessons

Saturday mornings are always filled with things to do. This morning was no different. Early morning alarm reminded me we had an appointment for "Spike" at the vet. Erik's bearded dragon has tail damage. Seems his "girl" bit him and caused his tail to die. Sitting in the little room waiting, my son was holding the little guy like one would hold a small child waiting for the Dr. to come it. Comforting him and talking to him. It was cute! But then came treatment! This is when "Mom" has to become "mom"... and Spike gets 5 shots every 3 days... from us. As they were teaching us how to do it, Erik had to look away- What? He couldn't look! Too funny! It will be a while before Spike's tail is "all better" and for now Spike and Nike have have a time out and are separated. They seem to be at somewhat at a loss, not really moving about their new "homes" too much, just enjoying the "heat lamp" all to themselves. After two clutches in a few months... I think they need some space any way...
