got Edd in the summer of 2001, I found him in the lake behind our
house. Actually my dog Daisy found him, but then I took him home and put
him safe in my old fish aquarium and put rocks, water, and snails in. My
mom and I bought turtle food for him and I fed and took care of him all
summer. Then in the fall he started not eating very much, and was
inactive, so I put him back in the lake to hibernate.
I still miss how he used to scratch on the sides of the tank at night
when I was in bed, and how he always chomped on his food right out of my
hand. Also the time I made him a Leggo trailer and he rode in it all day
with his little head looking all around. Even though I do not have him
anymore he still was a great pet and was fun while he stayed.
