    It's Somewhat A Funny Story

    Which may seem pretty insensitive I guess but here it goes; I got my first pet when I was 11. He was a small parrot (don't know which kind, my neighbors gave it to me). At first I was pretty excited on feeding him regularly, and mom would help by cleaning his cage everyday, but...

    A Sad Day Indeed

    I lost my Bearded Dragon last night.  I know he's a lizard and not a cuddly cat or dog.  And maybe some people think it's silly to be crying over a lizard but my pets are my family.  He was my friend and he did know me from other people.  It has been a very sad day for me.
