It started with a child yelling "Mom! Sprocket's got something!"... well, I didn't immediately run and check it out since she's a puppy and she's always "got something"
. After listening to the most annoying repetitive noise in the other room of what sounded like rocks being dropped on the floor, I decided to check it out. Here is what transpired:
1. Take one "Outback Jack" (Australian Shepherd/Jack Russell mix!) who constantly brings things in from outside.
2. Insert shocking/horrified realization here of what I found on the floor... poor thing was being tossed like a rag doll in the kids room. I picked it up and other than being pulled in tighter than I'd ever seen a turtle, he seemed okay, no turtle blood or goo...
3. Little turtle was immediately relocated to a nicer environment much to Sprocket's dismay!
Later that afternoon I found this ferocious guy... maybe I'll sick him on the dog to teach her a lesson! The kids named him "Beetle-Dude", original, huh?!
Who needs Dora the Explorer when mommy can come to the rescue? You're welcome, little turtle-dude...
I see lots of psychotherapy in Turtle-dude's future.ReplyDelete
Poor little Turtle-Dude, probably has a nasty case of vertigo. Thank goodness for Mom!!ReplyDelete
Reminds me of years ago when my husband's folks had a German Shepard who loved to catch snakes and bring them in the house . . . alive. Many hours were spent looking for the escaped snakes Bootsie brought in and dropped so they could slither away and hide.ReplyDelete
Now hold on. If you're going to usurp Dora's position in society, you need to start bossing people around, telling them to jump up and down, say this and do that and have your own traveling mariachi (sp?) band.ReplyDelete
But you could have that cool yellow bracelet, so that's not too bad in the long run.
OMG -- look at that face! I mean Sprocket, though turtle-dude is mighty cute too. It's always the cute ones that pull stunts like this -- they know they can get away with it!ReplyDelete
Thank goodness little turtle guy wasn't hurt. Something tells me turtle blood is not pretty. I'm sure he was very grateful and will eat plenty of bad bugs for you.ReplyDelete
Lol...great rescue super-hero mom! KimReplyDelete
