You wouldn’t believe it, but the first glance I had of him was when he sauntered past while I was taking a nap! There he was, just a few centimetres away from my nose!
Mummy shrieked, ‘ Shadow, don’t you go after the lizard. It is just a puppy!’
What a silly girl she is!
One, she scared away the lizard. And two, I would never have seen him, leave alone going after him, had she not shouted.
Anyway, the little puppy lizard ran right up our bedroom wall and stayed there pretending he was a pat of the paintwork!
No amount of cajoling and pleading could convince him to get down.
Buddy came over to help me but gave up much too soon, convinced that it was a sheer waste of sleep time.
Ginger, of course, couldn’t care less.
Sometimes I feel my older brother and sister are really getting old! I mean, this is the first lizard we were meeting after ages. How can you not be excited?
Well, I must have dozed off because when I woke up it was past midnight and the lizard was gone.
What a waste!!
Paws crossed I’ll see him around soon.
