The Wife Saves a Life

I came home to Pepper attacking something in the yard. I thought it best that I go check it out. Unfortunately, a turtle had made its way into the yard with the dogs. He was being tormented by Pepper.

I don't condone torture so I moved the turtle outside the yard into the pasture and went about my chores. Pepper, being the little smarty pants she is, went out of her way to get into the pasture and attack it some more.

Pepper


I managed to call her off and get all the kids back in the yard. Than I noticed Diesel messin' with something. The turtle came back in the yard. Not a very bright creature.

Diesel


I managed to wrangle it away from Diesel. I took it out to the drive to see if he was still alive. He peeped out of his shell at me.

Turtle

I walked down the drive and put him in the other pasture, away from the yard. Hopefully, the silly thing will not come back to the yard.

Turtle 2

He looked a little happier, less stunned. Pepper, on the other hand, was not happy with me!

mad pepper

She wanted her turtle back! She found it fair and square! I had to sit her down and discuss that we don't allow inhumane practices here at Crazy M. Of course, she rolled her lil JRT eyes at me.

hahaha Bless you, Mother Theresa. I have actually stopped in the road before to "help" a turtle across.

also had a dog once that HATED turtles! I'd have to relocate them in my truck to get them far enough away. LOL

You and your critters are entertainment to the fullest! Glad the turtle is safe, and hope he does not come back in the yard.

Poor turtle!! Lucky to have you as his good samaritan. We usually spot at least one box turtle after a good rain. The rain flushes them out of the fields.

Sydney said...

I think that may be a tortoise.
Poor thing, he was almost ate!
