Last night we had a late hour laugh. After last call the dogs congregate for their final "rubbies and hugs." Glacier rather forcefully shoved her head between Paul's legs for her neck and shoulder rub and since I was nearby I started rubbing her lower back and side.......when suddenly a lizard emerged from the hair on her back. At bed time and in the "light" of a 40 watt bulb one isn't sure what they are seeing is real! A moment of, "What the heck....?"
I guess Glacier didn't care to share her night with the lizard buried in her hair and was rather insistantly pestering Paul for a rubbie and lizard removal service. Yes, she walks through the shrubs on her way back into the house and probable location for the hitchhiker. Don't blame the guy, it was 27 degrees here last night, too cold for lizards.
|LOL awww poor pup didnt want to be a home for lizzards. Thats one reason I dont miss Texas. Always had to look out for those sort of things and scorpions in the shoes. Yikes|
We always have to watch out for lizards here. Apparently one got into the garage this week and we had a proud kitty bring the still struggling lizard into the main house and drop it at Ian's feet.
|We, like Emily, live in Florida deal with little lizards on a regular basis. Pearl used to make me sick because she would eat them. I tried a time or two to get them out of her mouth when she put them in her mouth and then I gave up. (sorry no video) I figured I would deal with whatever I had to deal with if she got ill...she never did. I haven't seen her with one for a long time.
When we lived in Michigan I watched a cat eat a snake which was really gross.
|Little lizards are common here, this is the first one to hitch a ride into the house. Poor little reptile had a wonderful fluffy warm home for the night.
I've never seen my dogs eat any wildlife, they leave the dead birds alone too, phew! However when we had ducks, chickens, etc, sure one of the guys would help themseveles to a little fresh meat......grrrrr.
|i would have jumped...not from being afraid of the little guy, just from the unexpectedness of it all...lol....|
|That's reallly funny, a lizard amazing what hitch hikes in their coats.
Mine was a Hunstman spider on Peppa on her back coat, there BIG HAIRY spiders and I HATE SPIDERS She must of been snoofing around the garden as usual and the spider decided to hitch hike inside on her butt.
Screamed then got her outside and flicked it off with a stick. Spider phobia I am No free rides in this house when it comes to those critters.
Lizards I can handle there sooooo cute, what sort was it?
|I TOTALLY don't think that's funny!! I'd be scared out of my mind. I hate lizards, geckos, ...anything that can crawl in my house that isn't already a member.
..and to think of touching my dog and have a lizard on her would give me nightmares FOREVER. I'm currently have nightmares over a movie I just saw, and it wasn't even scary (no country for old men).
Glad there were no pics
|I'm thinking some type of skink, assuming a blue tail since they are here. Early in the season so the blue tail wasn't evident.......but then it was very dim light in the bedroom right before bed. http://www.naturephoto-cz.com/blue-tailed-lizard:ameiva-auberi-photo-1823.html|
|WOW the blue tail is awesome, we have Skinks here but not as pretty as you have with that lovely blue tail|
|DANG SCARY LOOKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Especially when one is closer to sleep than awake. DH carried it back outside. Not something I would have wanted running around the house...|
|OMG I would have died from fright|
|We had a similar hitch hiker - it came on the plant we brought home in January from Todd's dad's funeral.
The plant came from the florist, to the funeral home for the viewing, the church for the funeral, then we took it home. The next day, this is what crawled out -
The plant was still sitting on the stove (next to a window) and I was doing dishes at the sink right next to it.
We kept him - January in MN!!! and he lived until a few weeks ago.
|Awwww I want a lizard at my place!!!! I think they are so cool! I have a cheap plastic one near my pond.
We don't have them in our gardens, so I'm jealous!
I remember an old post of mine regarding my boys are natural bio diversity helpers with seeds and seed pods often in their coat. A lizard!!! Now that's a tale worth telling!
|I don't mind lizards too much, but I don't blame Glacier for not wanting him in her coat for the night. I'll bet that was a shock seeing it come out of her coat.|
|I think that's so cool, wish we had wild lizards here. LOL|
|WOW my husband would of freaked, out all those kind of things scare him. I can't wait to tell him this story.
One time Echo came in from out side he had a long scratch on his side that was already a scab - my husband started screaming come here quick it's a leach it's a leach. Poor Echo was so scared he didn't know what to do.
