Ann, our friend and fellow puppy raiser, invited us over on Saturday for a meet-and-greet with Turbo, her new desert tortoise.
“Looks crunchy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside. Can I eat it?”
Turbo, who appears to be fearless in the face of dogs, remained unphased by seven leaping Labradors (one of whom licked him square in the face). He chased Lomax around a little bit before retreating to a nice shady corner of Ann’s yard.
“Is it coming to kill me?”
Aww, cute. I want a turtle
