Everyone loves sparky.That means she is famous!
Did everyone pet sparky a lot?

Hi Charlotte!

Yes, everybody sure did love Sparky! And she was definitely famous, especially with everyone she met and all of her visits to so many schools. Sparky got a lot of love during her school visits. All the kids loved to pet her, and Sparky gave a lot of doggie kisses to the kids, too!

And the kids love to pet our new dog Dexter when he visits schools, just like Sparky! I hope to have a new book about Dexter ready for the new school year in September.

Enjoy the summer!

You came to our camp Sunsasanal with darter or baxter

Hi Riley!

Yes, we did! Dexter and I had a great time visiting with you and your friends! I hope you enjoyed hearing all about Sparky.

Have a great summer!

Rick and Dexter

P.S.: I'm going to add a picture of Dexter and a couple of the SunSational campers who were wearing spotted shirts just like me. Check out the Gallery section of Sparky/Dexter's Web site under Sparky/Dexter in the schools. It will be the picture at the very bottom.

ih bexter l miss you

Hi Aaliyah!

Aww! I wish Dexter could come see you and cheer you up! Actually, Dexter is having a bit of a bad day because it's raining and there's a little bit of thunder, and he doesn't like thunder. But when that happens, Dexter goes down in the basement, and he's less scared down there.

But Dexter will be feeling better tomorrow because he's visiting a school in Bridgeport, CT. He loves going to schools now!

Thanks for writing!

has dexter ever been sick?

Hi Vivienne!

Yes, Dexter got sick once, he had hookworms, which are worms that grow inside a dog and make them sick. He got them by eating the rabbit poop in our backyard! When he had hookworms, he didn't want to eat, and his poop was all yucky, like diarrhea. We took Dexter to the doctor, and the doctor gave Dexter some medicine, which killed the hookworms. And I put up more fencing to keep the rabbits out of our yard, so no more hookworms for Dexter!

Thanks for the great question!

what is dexter favorite toy

Hi Vivienne!

Hmm, that's a great question! She actually doesn't play with her toys that much, but she does like a soft, white squeaky toy that she has, and she likes the squeaky toy she got today at her belated birthday party at a school in Bridgeport, CT. But the funny thing about Dexter is that she brings all of her toys out of the house and into the yard, and leaves them there! Her white squeaky toy got so dirty that we had to put it into the washing machine last week!

Thanks again for the great question!

How many friends did sparky have?

Hi Charlotte!

Sparky had lots of friends! She had a bunch of doggie pals in her neighborhood, as well as a lot of people friends, too! Sparky also made so many friends during all of her school visits. I always say that Sparky had thousands of friends and fans everywhere through her books and her school visits. She had a wonderful life!

how many do...you have

Hi Raai!

Speedy the Tortoise is 27 years old! But that's not old for a tortoise because they live for a long time. If Speedy stays healthy, she should live to be 50 to 60 years old!! We got Speedy at a reptile show in 1997. She was about five years old when we got her.

And I'm guessing you were asking how many pets we have. Right now, we just have Dexter and Speedy. But when my kids were growing up, we had lots of pets! We had two rabbits, Molly and Maggie, two frogs, Ali and Frazier, lots of gerbils and hamsters (even one named Oreo!), goldfish, another tree frog named Golden Eye, and my son David had some reptiles and a hedgehog named Peach (Sparky didn't like the hedgehog - too spiky!).

Thanks for the great questions!
