Sheldon Takes OnThe Woodpile

I Just Love Watermelon and Salad!!!  Mmmmm!

I Just Love Watermelon and Salad!!! Mmmmm!


Hehe…when Mommy isn’t around I like to be a bad boy!


Huh? What, Mommy? Oh, the wind blew me here! One minute I was minding my business like a good boy…the next thing I knew, I landed here!

Hi everybody…we wanted to give the floor to Sheldon, our desert tortoise, today. He woke up from his long winter’s nap rather early this year. He was up in early March…usually he doesn’t come alive until about mid-May or early June. He is healthy and back to his normal, toddler-like self..getting into places he thinks will avail an escape.


Who’s a trouble-making toddler? Surely, not I! I am a sweet and innocent a guy as you’ll EVER meet. Really.

He doesn’t like fences. The bigger area we give him to roam, the more area he seems to want. Please enjoy our very own home video taken a year or so ago of his typical exploits. This was a wood-pile incident we think you’ll like and laugh at as you watch…

(Please forgive our shaky start on the clip…we aren’t well-versed with the video camera maneuvering…it DOES straighten out pretty quickly, however. Turn up the sound to hear the play-by-play dialogue!)


Thanks for coming by all!

CJ and Mousie and Sheldon, too!

  1. That was no escape attempt. Poor Sheldon was just trying to keep fit on an assault course. He said it’s not fair you embarrassed him by showing his little accident. Not his fault if some human made the course faulty. Really he’s as brainy as Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory.

    • Why thanks, Dan. He’s cute in a devilish sort of way. I love him to pieces and wouldn’t trade him for the world. He’s my “Love-Face” as I tend to call him. I love his quirky, stubborn little personality so much. He’s always good for a laugh.
