We Met Mrs. Turtle!

Last night around 7PM mom took us on our peepee and poopoo walkie and guess who we just happened to meet? Mrs. Turtle!


Mom says she's pretty sure it was a girlie looking for a spot to lay her eggs!






Poor Mrs. Turtle ended upside down so mom had to do some fancy footwork to turn her over before Mitch flipped her again!

So far our walkie has been pretty exciting! The Honeysuckle is blooming over by our small pond and mom just LOVES the smell of it! She says she can never get enough of it's delightful fragrance!

We finished up our business and decided to go back the way we came so we could see how Mrs. Turtle was making out!

OMG! Where did she go? She's nowhere to be found! I guess she won't be laying any eggs in our back yard!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Mitch, Your mum actually allow you to do that to Mrs Turtle? Jie jie will never let me do anything like that. She says if I dun like to be treated this way, I shouldn't it to another pups too cos they will definitely not like it too.

I hope Mrs Turtle is not scared out of her wits.

Good evening m & m.
The message of the bouquet of lavender is a wonderful idea.
And, the turtle appears at the time of rain.
It is lovely.
It prays for turtle's happiness. :)

Hi Maggie and Mitch!

What a fun walk! That Mrs. Turtle is super adorable! I hope she sticks around! My Lisa likes honeysuckle, too. She says it smells soooo nice.

Smooches,
Winnie :)

P.S. I love the popsicle photo in your header! It looks sooo yummy!

Toffee said...

oooh!...I thought the story would end with turtle soup! tee hee just kidding. Have you ever had Turtle cheesecake from the Cheesecake factory?? I hope they don't use real Turtles in that...if they did I would feel a little guilty because it tastes sooooo good!

Petey said...

Wow Mitch - When I first saw Mrs. Turtle, I thought it might be a rare petrified dinosaur tennis ball!

I think I was right about the petrified part! You sure gave her a wild ride!

We don't have much honeysuckle, but the linden trees are in bloom right now and Mommy always takes weird deep breaths when we're out on our walks.

Have fun!

Your pal,

Petey

Stanislaw said...

Quick! Get it back!

A stuffy that moves on its own? That's like finding gold to us dogs!

Ferndoggle said...

Wow that looks like a great toy!! Mitch is a lucky guy...

We have honeysuckle all over our neighborhood and it smells amazing!

hi M&M, that looks like a pretty exciting walkie. it looks like Mitch thinks Mrs. Turtle is a toy - and a fun one too! that's some pretty unusual wildlife. maybe if she lays eggs, you can have a bunch of little turtles to play with.

woofs.

We think Mitch must have scared Mrs. Turtle into the next county! I wonder how fast she could run after her encounter with Mitchy!

Petra said...

How come Mrs. Turtle wouldn't play with you, Mitch! You were trying SO HARD to get up and play!

I would have acted more like you, Maggie, than Mitch!

Deetz said...

Clover said...

OMD that was the cutest video. Mitch really wanted to play with the turtle!
I bet she went off to find a more private spot!
Love Clover xo

Jackson said...

Oooo, Mitch! I hope you didn't scare the turtle too much! I think I would have done the same thing and tried to play with it! Jx

Lady Kaos said...

Good thing that wasn't a snapping turtle!! If I was a turtle, I think I would agree that your back yard isn't a good place to lay eggs. No offense to you guys, pretty much any dogs' back yard would be a really bad place to put anything you want protected.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Hehehehe! You guys had my human laughing so hard that she nearly rolled over on me! And you got me wanting my very own turtle to flip around! Hehehehe!

Slurp!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

Wow good thing Mrs. Turtle had on her full-body armour! Turtles are pretty slow, but I bet she got out of your yard very very quickly!

Chef said...

That was so cute, Mitch! If you thought that was fun, wait til Mrs. Turtle has all her babies and you have a whole mess of them to play with... oh, invite me over!!

Willow the Black Dale said...

Hehehehe!!! Mitch now I know what to do when I see a turtle. Thanks for the turtle poking around tip!! Maybe next time she'll come out and play.

nose pokes,
Willow

Sophie Brador said...

You goofs! You're lucky she wasn't a snappy turtle, or you might have had sore noses. But I have to admit, I would have done exactly the same thing. Turtles are pretty cool.

We're not too sure about the turtles that live in our nana's backyard. Their names are George and Sarah!

Our mama loves honeysuckle too. She planted it along the entire 100 ft. section of fence on one side of our yard!!
