Dearest Rukio, you are adorable! What a gorgeous Leopard Gecko girl you are! And what a terrific photographic model you are, just as your dear person says. You do know how to work that camera! You are your family's first gecko and favorite pet, and you and they all love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Rukio, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
