everybody! This is my cute pet mud turtle, Squirtle. He is really
sweet. He loves swimming in the Squirtle Pond (that's his muddy home). He
loves to hide and looks really cute when he is digging and scratching mud to
hide and cool off. When I let him out in the grass he loves to hide in the
plants. Even though he has a deformed leg, it still doesn't slow his speed. He
is very fast at running. I don't think any turtle is slow. That is just
folklore, I'd say.
Squirtle is a very special turtle because he isn't afraid of people. He gets
to know them very quickly. He isn't afraid of me at all now Thank God! He has
beautiful pearl colored eyes. His weird thing is that he rarely ever takes his
tail out. He usually sleeps all day. He loves to doze off when he goes in
Once, he was playing with a dove. I left him in the garden and started weeding
the grass. I looked around to check on Squirtle. I saw a dove staring at him.
Squirtle was looking at it too. I started watching the little play. I saw:
First Squirtle walked to the plants little by little and the dove followed
him. Later Squirtle hid in the plants and the dove walked here and there
looking for Squirtle. A little sparrow came and started helping the dove find
Squirtle. Sadly both of them were unable to find him - he hid really well.
They all looked so cute.
In one of the pictures Squirtle's deformed foot can be seen. And in another
one in which he is with the glass window, he was actually cleaning the window
because there was some dirt on it. He was cleaning it and having quite a fun
time. He is a special turtle.
