I can’t do this one as a Wordless Wednesday. There’s to much story to go with it!

Monday evening, as we were making dinner, I noticed this dog:

DSC02781 Was barking like a crazy fool at something along the fenceline. Since she is, at times, a full on crazy fool, I didn’t think a lot of it to start with, but after something like 15 minutes of watching her run around like a loon and jam her face into the ground (well, probably not really, it just looked like it ‘cause the grass needs cut ‘cause it won’t quit raining long enough for me to get it done!) I figured I should go check it out.

Good thing! Look what she found!

DSC03827Poor little turtle couldn’t have been any tighter in it’s shell, trying to protect itself from my beast. I brought it safely out to the front yard, where M and I waited to ensure it was ok.


It was! It slowly, tentatively poked it’s little head out of it’s shell. And then, it tolerated us, as my daughter and I ran in circles around it, snapping pictures, capturing videos, and generally enjoying it’s cute little turtle-ness.



We were very happy to see that the poor little turtle, who had been subject to an attempt to be turned into a dog toy, was well enough to make a safe getaway.
