Claire, the Pet of the Day
Name: Claire
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Bearded Dragon
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   Claire was born on July 4, 2009, so she's three years old. She's a reptile, an Australian Pagona Vitticep, better known as a Bearded Dragon. She's more than a pet to me, she's my baby. In one photo she is about four months old. She didn't have her cool orange color yet.

    Claire has spunk! Her personality shines through in her photos. When reptiles are small you can't tell if they're a male or female. I thought she was going to be a boy, so she started as "Spike," my male beardie. Even when Spike got old enough to tell the gender, I was in denial for a bit about her being a girl.

    I've played my keyboard/piano often and discovered with Claire that she does not like scary horror film sounds I play. She likes to ignore me when I play the deep bass sounding keys. I try to apologize and she continues with the attitude and ignores me.

    I also like cruising on my longboard at Tamarack Beach in Carlsbad, California. Here's Claire asking me to take her with me to go skateboarding. I call her my "Cali-Dragon." Doesn't she look like she's a graphic painted on my board?

    My Claire also likes tennis balls. She wants to eat them up. She really likes the desert! We took her to Glamis, CA to the dunes. I couldnt put her on the ground though, because she'd run away from me. We hung out and watched the riders go by and she admired the big playground of sand. I know she wanted to go running in it badly, but I knew I couldn't keep up with her! I've included some of my favorite pictures of her singing, smiling and being too cool!

    Claire even has her own Picture portfolio folder at her Grandma's Art Gallery at where you can download all sorts of pictures and use them as wallpapers or buy a print of your favorite Claire picture.
