While it’s not the same as having a real dragon to call your own, a Bearded Dragon can provide you with companionship and entertainment. They require a little bit more care than some pets, so we sat down with local “Mother of Dragons,” Jessie.

You can learn more about Bearded Dragons, and other fun pet options with the “Ask Me Anything | Pet Ownership ” series on Wagging Around. Inspired by a cute little local pig named Evie, that I just had to get to know! We figured our readers had pet options they were curious about too, and we were right! You can read all about Evie on last week’s installment in the series.

Have you ever seen a person and their pet and thought, “I WANT ONE!!”? I felt that the minute I saw the Instagram post from Gather GVL of a little piggie name Evie. She was so cute! But what is involved with owning a pig? I had so many questions! And thus was born the “Ask Me Anything | Pet Ownership ” series on Wagging Around.


All those burning questions you have running through your head when you see an animal that you would like to consider adding to your family but just don’t know enough about it. Evie’s Mom Abby was kind enough to tell us what it’s like to care for a pig.
