Meet Nova, The Crested Gecko 

3 days old

7 months old

We got Nova when he was 2 days old, he is now 9 months old and is turning into beautiful Crested Gecko. His enclosure is situated in a corner of my office away from drafts and the AC during the summer and by a window during winter to allow natural light in. While normal house temperatures are perfect for them, I have added a small red heat bulb as I have to have my office rather cold, at 65ᴼF. With special food twice a week, and a good misting 2-3 times a day, this little boy is growing well. At maturity, she will be approx 7-9 inches long.

Meet Cinnabon, The Bossy Pomeranian

Cinnabon is a 11 year old Pomeranian that I brought back from PA on my trip in October 2019. She was rescued by my aunt a few years ago, and due to unexpected circumstances, she had to find a new home for her... that's where I come in. On the day I was to return to IL, we gathered up all of Cinnabons stuff and packed it in my car. Without any of my families knowledge, I put her in the car and off we went. Now, 3 months later (Jan 2020), Cinnabon has won the hearts of EVERYONE in the house as well as farm visitors.  She is definitely a bright spot on a dark day
