Dodger is back
Some of you know that we have had a turtle, Dodger, in our backyard for about 4 years. Dodger would want corn, hamburger, grapes or apples almost every day, and there were times we would find him in the house if the back door was open, a very social turtle! A few months ago we had some landscaping done and we were afraid Dodge went for a stroll through the open gate. We have not seen Dodger since then until yesterday. We were sitting on the patio and heard the familiar thump, thump of Dodger on the flagstone. I don't know where he had been for 2 months, I am guessing he dug in somewhere to keep cool since it has been so hot. If Dodger is really hungry he will come up to our toes and nudge until we get him something. He got a slice of apple yesterday and certainly seemed to enjoy chomping down! Welcome back, Dodger!
