Greetings Professor Sprinkles! Happy Pet of the Day! What a handsome fellow you are, Professor, and just as your human says, your pattern/markings, your "sprinkles," are simply gorgeous! What a treat it has been, meeting your beautiful Torti self this morning! I smiled from ear to ear reading your human's heartfelt tribute to her/his shelled buddy; learning of that first meeting at the Critter Cabana (), how you came to be named, the details of your daily routine, your "silly" quirks! What a very unique, extra special 4 legged friend your family has in you, Professor! And knowing the impressive life span of tortoises, it's great to know that for many, many more years to come you will continue to bring countless smiles and laughs, enjoyment, to your humans' days! Keep up the good work, Professor, being such a special best friend to your family! Enjoy your well earned day in the spotlight, motoring about the house, napping in your deluxe tank, stuffing your face in that yummy, "squishy" catfood, being spoiled rotten! Lots of love to you, precious Professor Sprinkles! Long and hapy life to you! . .
