Lounge Lizard

You want to make a dog go crazy?

Have them live in an area that has lots of lizards!

These little cold blooded lizards are scampering around many a backyard and driving dogs and I dare say cats crazy.

Dogs are obsessed with trying to catch them ..

It can be quite entertaining and comical to watch, because lizards are pretty quick and can blend into the desert scenery, making it difficult for dogs to see them.

This past weekend I sat for two dogs one a beagle mix, and the other well, I'm not really sure, but working as a team they diligently search the property in hopes of finding one.

Lizards love to bask in the sun to stay nice and cozy and upon opening the door to the driveway all hell breaks loose!

A hound dogs nose and a big dogs paws for digging can send fear in a lizards backyard life and if not careful will end up becoming a quick snack for these two dogs!

Not that there is any nutritional value in eating lizards for dogs, but I guess it's all about the hunt and chase!

I captured this lizard awhile ago with my camera as his lizard buddies were fleeing for their lizard lives in another part of the yard.

Excellent shots, Chuck - my little brother and I caught many, many lizards as little kids and tried to make pets out of them. Didn't work out very well, but it kept us out of the house most of the day during the summer.

Those were the days when kids could be kids and spent the day exploring and playing outside!!

I love lizard, because just as you said they are fast and just like the dogs you sat for, I like to chase them and of course take photos. We have no lizards in our area, but believe me, when I go to Florida, they are on my list to "shoot"

I used to catch lizards on campus when I was in high school. Looking back, I don't understand why it seemed to be an interesting thing to do in those days.

Those are things we did in High School!!smile
One of my favorite things I did in H.S was making a wooden hockey puck and playing hall hockey between periods. Good times!!
