I ♥ Pets

This week's challenge at I ♥ Faces is 'Pets.' I have cute photos of Sniper, but figured I'd stick with Rocco...


He was a gift for our oldest daughter when she turned 5 (she is now 11), and I remember thinking a turtle would be an easy pet that would live for maybe a few years. After bringing Rocco home from the pet shop, I looked online to see how to properly care for turtles. Imagine my absolute shock to read that he could easily live 40 or more years!!

Awwh! I'm in love with him! A red eared slider is all my daughter has asked Santa for this year. This photo makes me all the more excited for that obese white guy to break into my home and eat all my cookies. ;) Great photo
