Parade of Pets Day 19
Meet Kuda! He’s my occasional pet.
When I have him, he’s not happy that his parents are visiting tropical locations and don’t bother to sneak him in.
Live crickets make him feel better, and make me feel worse when they escape.
(JR: there's a story in WaPo about this very thing)
He’s been quite the writing inspiration. The main character of ROCK AND ROLL WOODS is named after him. Kuda is very unhappy that the character is a bear, rather than a bearded dragon. His scaly presence always inspires me to write about a real dragon—but that book hasn’t found a home yet.
We're almost at the end of the blog hiatus; send me your questions so we can resume our usual ranting and raving!
