Some of you may remember me on the lookout for a male companion for my female Beardie, Brian. She was unwell when younger and as a result is nearly half the size she should be...
Well we had this little male at work, gangly little thing that was unwell when he was younger which also stumped his growth. He was housed with a female from the same clutch who was quite a bit bigger than him and she played the dominant one. She ended up going to a new home leaving the male by himself. I decided he'd be a perfect companion for Brian. He was only slightly bigger, only a few months younger, submissive and had always lived with another female dragon.
I ended up buying him and bringing him home. I'd planned on keeping them in separate vivs for the first 4 days and slowly introducing them but it turns out it was love at first sight and they have since been inseparable!
First meeting: (Brian left, Sally right)
Warming in the viv together (Brian left, Sally right)
Brian absolutely LOVES him and never leaves him alone lol:
Sleeping last night:
In case you're wondering about the names, Brian was named before we were able to sex her and boy did we guess wrong but she answers to her name so we never changed it. With the new male, well... may as well do it completely the wrong way round hey
DRAGON UPDATE: Still getting on swell and cuddling up to each other each night. Brian constantly sits on Sallys back. She's been a bit of a flirt the last couple days. Trying to get his attention by climbing all over him, bobbing her head and she even bit him on the back of his neck the other day. He meanwhile, isn't phased at all and ignores it all.
Brians behaviour is suggesting that she wants to mate. Dear me.
scallywag: Oooo just spotted this hope you feel better soon lotsofcats x

caz2golden: I will admit I do not use bank that often other than to sort problems and bank cash / cheques. I do however use bank (different one) for work so am highly aware how this will affect businesses which need ease of access and are usually banking cash..

caz2golden: I should not have bothered walking dogs today, only lead walk up lane but they came back as flat coats with all the mud, their jumpers are now in the washing machine!

lotsofcats: Several of our local banks have closed and others only open on certain days. I feel sorry for old people and traders who rely on taking their cash to the bank in the local town.

caz2golden: It just feels wrong, local town is already struggling, removal of bank is only likely to increase this issue!

scallywag: I flaming well don't want snow not with Poor Beau the way he is

caz2golden: Agree Scallywag, you definitely do not want snow with Beau recovering. Still wish we were having some, would love to get a dogs in snow picture, instead looks like here it will be rain. Think Lotsofcats might get quite a bit tomorrow.

caz2golden: I am getting sick of unpredictable and wet weather. Looks lovely outside at the moment but worried the heavens will open again at any given moment from what the 4cast implies. Been like this for days (feel like weeks)
