Yes he is-- so innocent and so dependent on us to take care of them

I am absolutely devastated to report that my dog ripped through the front of Chip's screen enclosure and attacked him. He didn't survive the encounter. My son and I were absolutely crushed. We were just starting to bond with Chip. My son always kept the dog out of his room to protect Chip, but he fell asleep and I wasn't home. My 13 yo son cried so hard and felt so awful for allowing it to happen. We can't even mention it without him breaking down.

We have invested so much time and money, that we both agreed we would like to adopt another baby, but only after I find an aquarium and stand to keep them fully protected. For this reason, I personally would never ever ever recommend a screen enclosure if you have other pets in the house. We thought we were being so careful, but we failed and it cost Chip his life.

I will keep up with the site, and do some more research as I prepare a new, SAFER, habitat before I get a new baby. I'm going to try to share pictures of the new set up as I get it together, to be sure its up to snuff before we pick a new friend.

I feel so terrible. I didn't ever think i could become so attached to a reptile, let alone one I had owned only a few weeks. I hope this will serve to warn others of the dangers of coexisting with several pets. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Omg-- that poor little baby- my heart goes out to you and your son- you might want to invest in a glass tank- I have a Zen habitat that has acrylic sliding doors and bamboo sides and back- I can't believe the dog would do that- I have 4 cats but they don't bother hiccup at all- of course he's never alone w/ them and have never jumped on his tank- again I am so sorry
