Estreet, your Willow is sweet looking. she almost looks like a deer. good luck to her.

Thanks Ben. It's true, whenever I take her out, children often point at her and say 'Look Mummy a deer on a lead!' I've never known what her ancestry is as she's a rescue dog, but she looks most like an Italian Greyhound.

Youth and enthusiasm are no match for age and treachery.

Glad you got the photo thing figured out!

i live just a half mile from the beach and it's pretty damp and humid most nights. fortunately, not too many rednecks here, but not really good tortoise weather, they are prone to pneumonia or respiratory problems in this environment. i bring him in the house each night. he hibernates in a box in the garage. i just tucked him in for the winter and he'll usually wake up around memorial day.

Whoa, this is amazing. How do you know when it is time to hibernate? Does he just go to sleep somewhere and STAY there for a few months?

Cool. I once saved a huge, old, gnarly-looking snapping turtle from crossing a busy street. I somehow got him into a cardboard box without losing any digits and took him to the river.

I once found a big snapper wandering around in Minnesota and picked him up. Man was he PO'd with me. I brought him back to the lake after a while and he jumped in and swam as fast as he could. After about 30 feet he turned back and gave me a dirty look then he kept going. It may have been the high point of my life. Smile

More info on Mr. T.....
I think it must be that he senses the temperature change, the length of daylight/shadows, polar position, or something about fall/winter coming. As this happens he just starts slowing down and becomes less active, eats less, and sleeps more. I keep an eye on him and I can tell when he's ready to go night-night. He just turned in last week. If we get a last minute heat wave he might wake back up for a little longer. Otherwise, he's down for the winter.

The first year I was told not to let him hibernate and wait to be sure that he was healthy. To do this, I kept him inside with a heat light on him and regulated the day/night cycle with a light timer. You can trick them into thinking that its still summer all year. I was told a sick tortoise will usually die during hibernation when their systems are at idle.

He's like a little dinosaur and he is fun to watch cruising the yard. I do feel a real sense of responsibility for him (as we all do for our pets). He is 100% vegetarian and eats grass, weeds, flowers, and occasional pieces of fruit and vegetables. When I got him he weighed about five pounds. He's now eleven pounds and about a foot long. Estimated age is 35-40 years.

And may I add, nice work! My cats favor a cove under my TV stand. If I take the DVDs out of the cove they take over immediately.

Sounds like a fascinating pet. Just out of curiosity, does he respond to you, recognize you etc, or is it more a case of knowing your scent and not being afraid, but little more than that? I know that when I kept pet snakes they would learn that you weren't a threat and would let you handle them but they weren't capable of much more than that.

Mr. T does seem to be social and likes the attention of being scratched on the head and legs. When he sees me, he does change course to come my way. Even so, he startles easily if someone or the dogs sneak up on him. He pulls into the shell quickly, just like in the cartoons (except it doesn't spin around when he pulls in real quick). I don't think he's really bonding with me or anything like a cat or dog would. I would guess he's a lot like a snake. His head sure looks like a snake.

All this tortoise love is making my dogs jealous.

Doclegume.....i sold the Vespa to buy music gear...what else. I have been kicking myself sense as i watch gas prices going through the roof. Oh well.
When my shoulder gets better I'll post a pic of what i got for it.

That's really cool. Too bad he doesn't spin like in the cartoons.

I thought I'd bump this thread 'cause it's so awesome. It's something (I think) we can all agree on Smile and people who love animals are generally not serial killers.

Here's a pic of TomorrowMen Tony's dog Laika who came over to help with the Pool Boy's recording session. Laika is an awesome producer!

Smile Dogs RULE!!! What would life be without dogs? Not nearly as good, in fact downright sucky, that's what....

I like (some) dogs,
but I am away from home to much to have one.
maybe one day when I get a big ranch house,
with some acreage I will get one.

Here`s a couple op pics of our dog Ebba. Ebba is named after the swedish punk-rock band Ebba Grøn, and is a mix of german sheppard, american akita, alaskan malamute and caucian mountain dog. She is 7,5 years old, and a very happy dog.

Enjoy the pics:)
