Journal Entry

I wanted to dedicate this new journal entry to my beloved beardie Mo'o (Hawaiian for "lizard"). We got her as a baby a little over 5 years ago from a very kind and generous breeder who was giving away a clutch of hatchlings she couldn't keep herself. For all the time she was with us she was a happy, mellow and playful little dragon who loved to climb, hang out with us outside in the warm Texas sun in summer, happily munched her crickets, roaches and worms and really never was sick. She had the most expressive colors and you could always tell her mood.

This year we just had really bad luck with her when she caught a respiratory infection in February which we nursed her back from with the help of our vet (we had to inject her with antibiotics, which was terrible, to have to stick a needle into your pet who trusts you and can't understand what's going on). We then had to board her in early summer, because we both had to travel, and the people at the reptile clinic that took her didn't bathe her, so she didn't shed properly from her tail which eventually had to be removed. Again she healed up and got all better.

Then last week she became all lethargic and turned pale white with a black beard and black color blotches on her sides. We went back to the vet who couldn't find what made her sick, but did tell us it was no respiratory infection this time. She hadn't been outside of her cage unless we watched her, so she couldn't have eaten anything poisonous by accident. The vet sent blood samples to a specialized lab to run some tests she couldn't do herself on Monday, but during the night from Monday to Tuesday this week Mo'o passed away. We found her yesterday morning in her usual corner looking as if she'd just fallen asleep.

I really miss my poor, beautiful dragon and I am so sad she had so many bad things happen to her this year with so little time to spend with us. 5 years was much too short!
