Meet our Water Dogs :Mr and Mrs. McLintock

Some years ago we had a pair of water dogs, which are an aquatic lizard and look quite a bit like the "Luck Dragon" in The Never Ending Story movies. After that pair passed on...we looked for replacements but had no "luck".This pair of water dogs are my husband's pets. Hannah and I bought them for him for Father's Day two years ago, much to his pleased surprise! Charlie is a huge John Wayne fan so it was only fitting that we name this male and female pair Mr and Mrs McLintock, after the name sakes of one of his favorite John Wayne movies. They eat dried pellet food but prefer tiny fish, (if you look carefully you can see some meals swimming around...they are pink) The McLintocks like to be handled and they are a pretty cool conversation piece in the kitchen, almsot as cool as when we had a 2 foot iguana living in the kitchen, almost!.

This is not what it looks like, they crawl over each other all the time and it means nothing that we can tell, so far !

YES water dogs have eyes, but in this photo, even close up, they are not visible because Mr Mc  had closed his eyes.
