Puppy (and Lizard) Love

            It is a well-known fact that I become highly attached to my canine companions. My husband jokes that I don’t love him as much as I love my dog, which of course is…um…absolutely…um…not true.

            Anyway, my heart positively melted when I read about a woman in the U.K. who used the money she had saved for her wedding to pay for expensive medical treatment to save her pet. George, a bearded dragon, had a cancerous tumor on his head, and he needed chemotherapy immediately. Without thinking twice, she handed over her wedding fund to the veterinarian and kept vigil by George’s side. The lizard, thank goodness, is now in remission.

            As for her fiancé, he is definitely a keeper. When asked about how he felt about the wedding taking a backseat to George’s health, he said, “They definitely have a special bond. I understand he is her number one.” Now that’s the kind of man a girl could spend the rest of her life with. Just ask me.
