More wildlife

Son took Sabir to the boardwalk late last night, and was approached by a wobbly sick seeming weasel which did not seem afraid of the dog, or willing to be scared off by shouting and stomping. Son backed off and called the police. even if it was a pet that had somehow gotten loose, it should have been wary of a strange dog. Rabies unlikely but worth avoiding... Police came out but could not find it. They were very nice though.

Also, there is this.

This was apparently a little girl dragon. She must have been miserable on a strange street on a night barely above freezing. She could have been run over, she could have just died of the cold. Now she will go somewhere quiet with a nice heat-lamp.

I'm glad Sabir is safe. I wish the weasel all the best but rodents carry all kinds of germs or even if it wasn't sick, rodent bites hurt like hell and get infected so easily. Sabir is too nice to go through all that

Yes I was bitten by a ferret.(Long story, but the short version is that it was totally my fault.) I remember being surprised by how quickly and easily it happened. Sharper teeth than a cat's even.

The thing about Sabir is that he loves every creature he sees. He weeps with joy when he meets complete strangers. I am sure they think we are mean to him. He also thinks all non-humans would like to play; Other dogs, feral cats, pigeons, rats.

He is so full of joy and kindness. It would be an awful shame if the got his feelings hurt or worse.

Sabir really does sound like the most delightful creature imaginable! I would love to get to meet him one day, but failing that we must have another Skype call in the meantime :)

Also, "a stray komodo dragon" WTF?! How is there a stray komodo dragon wandering around?!

Sabir is a darling and we discovered recently that he likes skype calls and can do a tele-nose-lick charmingly so I recommend you try !

Sabir seemed to understand the Skype didn't he? If you were here he would look into your face and give you a nose kiss for real. In the meantime, let's Skype again soon.

I think some idiot got the dragon as a pet. They did not read the part where they get to be 10 feet long and have a poisoned mouth and eat live goats!

The NYPD were very good this time. Also the people who captured it with the trashcan.
