On any given day, one of my family members is assigned the task of playing with the lizard. Each participant chooses either the grass or sandbox.
Yes, I have four dogs who need their daily dose of stimulation. Cats are also a part of our landscape. I’ve got tunnels in the backyard and playground equipment that satisfies both kids and dogs, but honestly, it is the lizard, peering out from inside his glassy habitat that routinely makes me feel most guilty.
