It is with much sadness and a very heavy heart to let my chameleon friends know that my sweet boy Red had to cross that bridge yesterday. It was the hardest thing we have ever had to do but it was time for him to go. Red had been with us for 17 years this months. He was 17 & 1/2 years old on Oct.1st. In June of 2010 he was diagnosed with lymphoma and had 6 months of chemo and been in remission ever since. It was multi old age problems that got him.

Red was 5 & 1/2 months old when we adopted him out of a shelter. Here he is shortly after we adopted him. He still had the puppy look.

Jann,

I am so sorry to read this :(. I am so glad I got to meet Red in person! One of my favorite memories was watching him next to Hendershot by the free range on the back of the couch :D. Of course, I always look forward to pictures of him opening his presents each year!!! I'm sure that it will be difficult for quite some time due to all the memories you and Mike have of him, but eventually those great memories will take over and replace any sadness.

Rest in Paradise Little Red Bug :love:. You will be missed!

Wow, Jann. I can’t believe I’ve known Red on these forums for over 7 years. What a sweet special boy he was! He beat all the odds for so long and lived so happily with ALL types of living creatures!
Rest In Peace and run free, Red.

Red was truly one dog in a million - he was so patient and kind around all of your chameleons and he really had a wise old soul about him. He will be missed, no doubt about it. Our hearts go out to you and Mike.

Thank you so much Michael for always being there. It been the hardest thing ever. Red was always kind and gentle with the chameleons even though it took me two years to completely trust him with them.
