Goodbye, Lockheed

My iguana, Lockheed passed away yesterday after a long illness. Below you see his sketch self (actually named Chet in the book but I based his likeness on Lockheed) from No Rest for Sparky and below there are also pictures of the real life Lockheed above and below. Handsome guy huh? I came back from Massachusetts to find that Lockheed had passed away in his cage. I took him to get cremated this morning. I have had Lockheed longer than I have had any pet (12 years!). He kind of landed in my lap when I was in college! So he lived with me on campus and the rest is history!

A younger, more spry Lockheed
