Wonder Pet





Releasing him back into the wild


This afternoon we went for a family drive- something we like to do on Sunday's and when the kids are in desperate need of naps which they were finally able to get- and we found a park close to our house. It had a huge pond right in the middle with fish and ducks. After playing for a while we were loading into the car when I came across this little turtle on the side of the road. I called Ryan, thinking that he would go put it in the pond for me. But no, the 14 year old boy in him came out and he wanted to take it home. Ella loved it! She thought that we had found Tuck from the wonder pets! (It's a show on Disney channel. I had to include a picture to see that there really is a resemblance.) She played with him for most of the evening. She just followed him around the back yard. She got some lettuce to feed him. She basically was force feeding the thing until it bit her finger. Ella thought that he must be full after that. (It didn't even leave a mark) As it got later Ryan and I decided that it might not be a good idea to keep it. We don't have a good history with pets. Plus there's the salmonella problem. So we took Tuck back to the pond and set him free. Ella of course was very upset. I think that tomorrow we are going to go and get a small gold fish. A pet that we can handle. To be continued.......

That is great, I love that she is so daring. Avorie and Adilyn both want a pet so badly... I was thinking about a bunny rabitt. John said no way. I can't win with him on any animal but a fish.

How cool that you found a turtle on the side of the road, a big one too! How fun for Ella!
