    Pugs, Boston Terriers, English, French Bulldogs and many others.. Some of the most adorable dogs due to their smushy, wrinkly faces. Unfortunately, their adorable looks do come with a price.

    Crested Gecko Care – An Introductory Guide

    Welcome to my introductory guide to Crested Geckos, otherwise known as Eyelash Geckos. They have been referred to as Eyelash Geckos because they have long spikes on top of their eyes that look like eyelashes.

    When you think of an animal that has no hair, you probably think that they do not require much maintenance. Surprisingly, that isn’t true! Sphynx cat care includes frequent baths, nail trims, ear, face and feet cleanings and teeth brushings. They are also very high in energy and love affection. These cats are very unique and make amazing pets, although do think twice if you believe that they aren’t going to be a lot of work. They also tend to be quite pricey, and I know the amount that a breeder asks for can sound unreasonable, but for breeders to produce healthy, genetically tested kittens, it costs a lot for…
