Wild Animal Invasion

We were out for a peaceful walk when Qannik first alerted on the vicious invader.

Qannik bravely approached but knew that he needed reinforcements.

Natasha raced to protect the Q-tip from the marauding creature.

The ever faithful right paw of the Queen, Kiska joined the battle.

But then the hu-dad said we should just move along.

We think we proved out point. Our adversary looked shell shocked.

    Was that a snapping turtle? Better watch your snouts. Maybe turtle soup on the counter for Ruby?

    I’ve never known a dog that wasn’t fascinated by turtles. That one is a beauty.

    Gamera is a lot smaller than I thought he was.

    Tee Hee – shell shocked – good one, HuDad.

    TD wants to know if Qannik asked the turtle his name. He is still looking for Tony. He met one the other day on his walk, but he said it didn’t smell like Tony.

    That’s just like Tookie! I have a friend in my backyard named Tookie that looks just like that, but a bit smaller…

    They’re friendly! Don’t be mean to them!

    Giggling over the punch line! I think my dogs would have NO idea how to respond to a turtle. They’ve never seen one.

  18. Sage on September 16, 2010 at 8:37 am

    Wow, the herd presented a really strong front in the face of adversity! You were so brave.

  19. Minnie and Mack on September 16, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Mack and I came across one of these invaders earlier this summer. He tried to approach from all sides, but he/she retreated into his shell. Sure was good smelling but humom made us move along, too. Glad you were able to protect you selves and your property!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

    *snort* Well, you never know when those turtles will amass and turn on you! Just remember, Q — he who fights and runs away, runs away another day!

  21. Martha and Bailey on September 16, 2010 at 5:26 am

    Oh, you were soooooo brave – we have never seen anything like it!
