My Precioussses

This forum is specifically for people who want to share day-to-day stories about their beardies... the weird or fun stuff. This is not a forum for seeking help, but more just for sharing the cuteness that is your beardie.

Rosie has been asleep for a couple of weeks. We are planning on a trip to Northern AZ next month for a week, hopefully a few days longer if my boss doesn't mind. We are thinking of waking her up and taking her with us because she tends to wake up whenever she feels compelled to and we are concerned that she will wake up while we are gone and wonder where we are and why she's all alone. When she was younger she'd sleep for a week, maybe two then wake up for a day or to and repeat thsi process all winter long. She's been sleeping longer then she used to.

It's been almost a year since I posted here last. Rosie is sleeping all day a lot in this last spring. She's 11 now. She usually wakes up for good in March and doesn't sleep all day long after that, except for this year. It's like she's getting sleepier, like I tend to do now. She's wakes up when we wake her up, once in a while we notice she woke up and we are like "Rosie!" we miss her when she sleeps all the time. Lil Squirt turned 6 (I think, I lost track). She has never brumated but she lays eggs a lot, thankfully she's not laid any eggs in the last several months. Her hormones get her to being ornery or something.

Welcome back =). I'm glad to hear they are doing well even if a bit sleepier and ornery.

It's been awhile since I've been on here. Rosie is now 12 and sleeping more this year than she's been awake. I'm guessing we won't have her for very much longer. Lil Squirt just turned 7 on June 18th (2019). Her favorite spot is still my shoulder, day or night. [Click image to enlarge]
This is Lil Squirt with a horny toad sitting in our window looking outside. This toad was let go after the picture was taken.

Here's the picture I was looking for, it took me awhile. It's a picture of Rosie and Lil Squirt who went with us in September of 2017 to Payson, "AZ. On the way back we stopped at one of the overlooks of Roosevelt Lake in Northern Arizona just southeast of the Phoenix area and north of Globe, Arizona. My husband had put both girls on this rock near to each other then as he was getting ready to take the picture, Lil Squirt moved close to Rosie so they were nose to nose. She did the same thing a few days ago outside of our home. She (lil Squirt) misses her sister (Rosie) as Rosie is 12 now and she sleeps all day for many days in a row, even now in the summer. We all miss her when she sleeps. This picture made the cover on the Bearded Dragon Calendar for 2018 a first for us. [Click image to enlarge]

That sounds like a fun trip! It's cool to hear the story of that photo. I happen to have the 2018 calendar sitting right in front of me at my desk! My guy is in the large photo for May so I keep that edition tacked up on the wall.

I understand that. Bill has made color copies of that cover on card stock so we can have it up on the wall and protected at the same time. We got two copies of that calendar so we have one up 24/7 on the wall and the other wrapped up and protected.

A week or so ago Rosie let us wake her up for a day. We usually sleep with them when we nap, not overnight, and I had Rosie on my chest, my husband had Lil Squirt on him until Lil Squirt wanted to be with her big sister (Rosie) and walked off him and over to me. She bonded with Rosie the first summer we had her, after Rosie woke up for good from her brumation and we had both of them outside with us at the same time and Lil Squirt watched Rosie closely, I believe it was to see how she handled 'this outside thing'' Lil Squirt (she's 7 now) and we've had her since early November of 2012. Lil Squirt has been bonded with Rosie ever since that first summer with Rosie outside (May or June of 2013.

That's a great picture of your two! Lil squirt definitely seems to be enjoying the outside time LOL

The wild lizard looks a lot like the wild lizards we have here too. We call them blue-bellies :D

Thanks, I appreciate it. I used to be on here a lot but I got into different things. I will be on here more often, unless things get in the way. I need to go back through this thread of mine to see if I Rosie is 14 (as I think) or is she 13? I lost track somewhere along the way.

Lil Squirt, 8 years old now, still prefers 24/7 shoulder times. Today was the Palominas, AZ Christmas parade. In this parade, anyone can be in it. All you have to do is put some Christmas things on your vehicle and get into the line. It wasn't as long as it usually was in past years. We usually bring Rosie and Lil Squirt along but we didn't this time because it was just tooo cold for them, we were wearing warm clothes. Lil Squirt had gotten herself out of her sleep hide when we got back but Rosie seems to stay in her hide unless we get her up. With Rosie, it's hard to tell whether she is awake or not, she seems to keep her eyes closed most of the time unless I ask her to open her eyes to let me know if she's awake, she usually does that but today she didn't. Having an older beardie is a new experience for us.

Rosie is awake, even though she seems to keep her eyes closed all the time. Lil Squirt is our 8-year-old. They are both girls and both have laid eggs. Rosie, thankfully, doesn't anymore. Lil Squirt has laid eggs, we can always tell with her as she starts head-bobbing, which she has today (maybe yesterday) once or twice. If she lays eggs, it will probably be awhile.
