Timmy was my pet turtle. I had him for 6 years before discovering he was really a she! A few years ago he/she developed shell rot. Unfortunately nothing helped. He continued to be active right up until the end.


For a turtle, his life was most exciting. He was originally stolen from a pet store...by my then boyfriend. He was the meanest turtle of the bunch. He grew to big for his bowl and moved into a tank. There he managed to escape. Moved into a bigger tank...he still managed to escape. My Dad told my sisters to pick him up with a dust pan. My sisters replied, "He's bigger then the dust pan!!" 


He had his own pool in the back yard, complete with sun bathing rock. He ate minows and gold fish. He tormented the dogs and scared various guests. He will me sadly missed. Our whole house is decorated with zillions of turtle ornaments and stuff. So no matter what, he will never be forgotten.


Timmy - we love you.
