We have poo!!20170817_143832“So I didn’t potty for 8 days…why were the humans wigging out?”



20171015_172030“For real? Is she swooping in for more kisses?”



20171205_184931“It was the 20th time she squealed ‘Yay, you pooed’ that did me in.”

I’m Having Too Much Fun With This

20180317_154054.jpgLil’ Murph had a few too many crickets one night….

20180317_153400.jpg….He met this chic

20180317_153307.jpgHe really likes her.

20180317_153642.jpg“Can we keep her, Mom?!”

20180318_124527Murph: “Uh – huh…I’m awake. What did you do with her?!”

Me: “All is well Love, she’s in your hammock above you.”


Lil’ Murph was posed yet again (in the 1st three pics), to some-what play in the realm of silly human occurrences – this one being St. Patricks Day.

Poo update: Murph’s actually enjoying his liquid diet 2x – 3x daily. I’m going to get canned pumpkin (no additives) as I’ve read this helps. It’s seeming with some dragons this not-so-daily poo can become their norm, but I will remain observant & cautious. All bodies systems’ change, but I’m not ruling out there’s a problem. One thing I read & one I watched : https://www.beardeddragon.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1358284

among others, has made me choose to delay another couple days before a vet visit. His beard isn’t black, no signs of distress or discomfort. He moves his legs just fine. I detect no lump or blockage in his cute belly (near the vent or elsewhere), though I still massage the area.

…Still Waiting…

20180320_170623.jpgHow often does it occur that one wants sh** to happen? Well, in the cases where a person is worried about their baby, human or otherwise, quite often.20180321_200123.jpgLil’ Murph has taken to unique postures lately. We are waiting for the big poo. He’s been constipated and a vet visit appears imminent. His substrate is his own collection of sheets and things of pamperdom (I make up my own words) and a neat rough stick on which to bask or help him to scratch off old skin. Thus, he hasn’t ingested sand and eats a variety of produce (never citrus, of course). I’ve upped his liquid intake, heat & humidity. I don’t know the cause of the poo-lessness. He’s nearly on an entirely liquid diet of slightly warmed plum baby food mixed with filtered water, olive & castor oils with a little calcium powder. He is being so good about it!20180321_200130.jpg20180321_200237.jpgHe’s getting cleaned up. I should’ve gotten him out of this position, but I couldn’t. Just couldn’t!20180324_181531.jpgThis is what Murph is doing this very minute! Warmed by his lights, I hope this helps. In a bit I’m going to massage his belly on the right side near his vent to attempt to loosen a blockage. So, this is what’s going on with us right now.

He’s being adorable.
