Dogs are no fun for turtles
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...
