September 1996 - October 1998
|From the character in Shakespeare's Othello.|
|BREED / PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION|
|China Brown (aka Chinese Brown). Desdemona was about the same size as Lysander and perhaps a bit heavier. She was certainly every bit as loud as he is.|
|Lysander's and Desdemona's history is related on the Geese Home Page.|
|Easygoing and sociable. Desdemona was quite sweet and people-oriented and liked to be petted. On occasion, she even climbed into my lap. When she knew I had worms with me, she tended to try to climb up my legs with her wet, rubbery feet.|
|Deformed offspring and an undiagnosed fatal illness. See Details.|
Building nests, eating worms, "marching" in puddles, and - of course - being squirted with the hose.
