So long Bobby, it was nice knowing you

The other night, a neighbor boy brought over his turtle Jeff (pictured). The boys were very excited to meet Jeff and play with him (her?). As luck would have it, the very next day we nearly ran over a turtle on the way to town. We picked him up, brought him home and he was promptly named Bobby. The boys spent a while playing with him, then came in the house and left him on the front deck. Turns out little Bobby was a speed turtle. When the boys went back outside just a little while later he was gone. They were a upset and spent a long time searching, but he is gone. That concludes their first experience with a pet. Posted by Picasa

Well, Speedo the Turtle was probably practicing for his race with Mr. Hare ... ;o)

Is it mean that I chuckled at this story? I am sorry the boys lost their pet, but the way you told the story was so cute!

At least he 'got lost' outside instead of in your house like our boys' pet frog *grin*

Oh, poor boys!! I can just see the looks that must have been on their little faces when they realized he was gone!! Like andrea said, at least it wasn't in your house where he magically disapeared. Good luck, maybe someday soon, you will come across him again.
