Long time no post

It's been a while since I last posted. I was in the hospital and still recovering from a heat stroke. I still find it hard to cool off and get over heated very easily. I was surprised to find that Puff ate for Johnny. I knew Lilo would eat as long as food was available to her.Puff is very picky when I am not there to feed him and sing to him. I am glad I have friends that can take care of my Dogs,Cats, Fish and Dragons when I am unable to.      Puff went to see Dr. J in June and had blood work done to see if he is still healthy. Dr. J says he is still doing well for such an old Dragon. His weight is good. Lilo is also doing great.Dr. J cut her nails as they were very long again.If I could see better, I would do it my self but I don't want to take a chance that I might cut too far.I have gotten Mercury vapor UV bulbs for both Dragons now and they are both much more active. These bulbs are very expensive but they are worth it. I still use the long tube type UVB lights for the cool end of their tanks as they do not generate heat . The Mercury Vapor bulbs do generate the heat needed for basking. This way, there is enough UVB light at each end of their tanks.Both Dragons are eating well and enjoying the summer. Puff Spends a lot of his time soaking in his water dish.I spend a lot of time with Puff and Lilo. Handling them and talking and singing to them. They seem to enjoy the attention and I really enjoy them. I love my Dragons! Puff and Lilo,the Golden Dragons,to be continued......................
