I have an incredible girlfriend. She couldn’t wait untill Christmas…
She’s a keeper
An understanding and supportive partner makes all the difference in this hobbie. Actually in life generally.
Imagine if a partner was terrified of and hated your pets.
Dawn was never around snakes before she met me. Once she was able to look past her fear , she seen the beauty and docile nature of ball pythons. Now she holds while I clean , LOL…
Ha, same with my wife
Its good to change fear into interest.
I had a fear of spiders untill my ex wanted one. She got a pink toe , (Avicularia , avicularia). I became fascinated. To the point of pairing them , pulling egg sacks and selling slings.
