You Marry Me, You Marry My Lizard

Posted by

The video below is a beautiful example of love between humans and lizards. I cried last night when I watched it, and again this morning (grrr). This iguana loved her family, and was loved as she deserved, by a man, as he grew from a boy and grew his own family. The whole family loved this girl! Within past posts and in our gallery you can see Goliath and Copper, wonderful souls I had in my life. This video forced me to think of their love, lives, the joy they gave, and their deaths again.

Copper

I too took a photo of Copper when I knew she had long before breathed her last breath. I am not sure why. I have never shown these photos of my life-less Copper. I’m showing you today: img_0250.jpgCopper was covered with that soft, lavendar chenille blankie you see upon her,  and was rested onto one of her teddy bears days before and during her cremation.

Copper won hearts with her own

To say our bond was strong does not convey the depth of what we had. I knew when she was awake under her blankie awaiting the morning embrace, when she was lonely, bored, hungry, you name it. I knew Her. I was hers as much as she was mine. I was leary to love another lizard because I thought it unfair to the new lizard in my life, should I only wish it to be my Copper girl again.

When I met Lil’ Murph, my heart went to him. He was a lonely baby boy. When I was begged to take him to give him a better life, and by another I was told it was time to love again, I relunctantly did so. I felt it was a bad time for the responsibilty & also that I wasn’t ready. I am so happy I brought Murph home to live with me! He is unique and wonderful, and I was proven to be wrong, it was time to love again!
