I found a baby turtle in my pool this morning. I guess he got confused as to where he should be swimming, but this was not the place for him. He couldn’t get out. And he looked very tired. So I saved him.
And my daughter named him Doug. Doug is great turtle name, don’t you think?
And he was grateful to be saved. Want to know how I know? He smiled at me! With his shell too!!
So, I took him for a walk to the end of the property to put him back in the canal. And he started to come out of his shell… (see what I did there?)
And then he got braver…
A few times, I had to keep him from jumping. I think he was just excited. Not scared at all of the big creature that was holding him, high in the air, and showing him to little kids and dogs. Nope, not that at all.
Finally made it down to the canal, where I was going to let him go.
Awww… isn’t his tail the cutest thing ever?!
But then I saw my neighbor, and she wanted to see him. Of course, she fell in love with Doug too. He is quite the cute little guy, after all. She said that she could put him in her little pond, so she took him there, instead of the big, bad, scary canal 🙂
Bye, Doug! We will miss you.
Have you saved any animals lately?
