Pugs and Geckos and … ?

If you’re starting to think that Lola Pug and I did absolutely *nothing* on our trip to the southern states, you take home the grand prize, my friend.

Lola did, eventually, discover the geckos, and was mesmerised by them – even when they were standing still.

We went down to the dock one morning to find something that was perhaps a bit bigger than a gecko had clearly been wandering through the garden the night before.

Our friend, Bassa, will know – is this an iguana trail?

Whatever this was – it was bigger than a pug!

After learning from Bassa that iguanas can break a dog’s leg with a swish of their tail, I’m kinda happy we never saw one up close.

Ceci n’est pas un Pug

With new adventures come new creatures, and these little buddies are some of my favourite animals to see when traveling to warmer climes…


Aside from a youthful stare down with a neighbouring bearded dragon, Lola has been kept a bit distant from the world of lizards. I was hoping on this trip that we’d catch sight of a slow gecko, or even an Iguana, if we were lucky.

Alas, Gordon was doing his lizard-y best at pretending to be a rock, and his lack of movement (and the two panes of glass between them) meant that Lola Pug really didn’t register his creature-ness or take more than a passing interest in him.

Ah, well. Best she doesn’t take up gecko-chasing as a new sport.
