    Congratulations on being Pet of the Day.
    Seventeen years is a long time to have a pet, with many more years to go.
    Turtles are fun to watch and much smarter than people give them credit for.
    Celebrate your special day

    Dearest Speedette, what a beautiful Eastern Box Turtle you are, and what a great habitat you have, with bedding you blend right in with. And what a nice story you have to tell! Your dear people rescued you when you were tiny, smaller than a quarter. You've lived with them ever since, some seventeen years now. You have the most delightful personality. You react to your family's different voices differently, and you're not bothered by the cat or dog or the noises they make. You're quite calm, and nothing bothers you enough to make you retreat into your shell. You're a very special member of your family, and you all love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!

    Your dear person has a good message for us all: Turtles and tortoises don't generally make good pets for just anyone; they need a lot of special care. Please do your research before you decide to adopt one!

    Congratulations, darling Speedette, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and your dear people and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.

    Congratulations, Speedette, on being POTD! You are beautiful, unique and sweet! (Turtles are fascinating!) We loved reading about your happy life and loving family. We wish ALL people would investigate proper care/nutrition for ALL pets before buying/adopting one - all of the small pets we've adopted from the Humane Society were previously bought by adults/kids who didn't know anything about their needs and neglected them! Sending best wishes for a continued happy, healthy, fun, safe life, Sweetie! P.S. Be careful outside in the summer - predators and poisons are everywhere!

    Super Speedette!!!

    Greetings, Speedette! Congratulations on being crowned Pet of the Day!

    What a beautiful Eastern Box Turtle you are, Speedette, and clearly so very loved and well cared for by your family; truly living the life there in sunny, gorgeous NC!

    As a very young child I had two Box Turtles as pets: Lou Lou and Pinky. We received them from a neighbor who had raised them since they were babies but were no longer able to care for them as they moving from their home into an apartment. I'm pretty sure my parents weren't too savvy regarding their needs, but they were much loved and well cared for, thriving, until my parents decided one summer it was better to release them back into the woods while we were on vacation. We watched them those 3 months and they adjusted well to their natural habitat, which was comforting to us all!

    But as your human says, considering the amount of care required and your species' special needs, it is vital to do the necessary research before deciding to welcome a turtle or tortoise into your life! That said, what a wonderful, idyllic life you're living, Speedette! And how wonderful that this summer you'll be treated to a spacious, enclosed outdoor living area, able to enjoy the Carolina sunshine and fresh air, exploring your natural habitat!

    How lucky your family is, having a beautiful, unique and fascinating shelled family member in you, Speedette! You truly are one extra special girl, and so very deserving of your big day of honor!

    Thanks for the BIG smiles, sweetheart! Meeting you today has been such a treat! I hope you enjoyed a very special day of celebration, being spoiled to the max and loved to bits! Lots of love to you, beautiful Speedette, our very special and most deserving Pet of the Day, EVERY day!!!
