This morning I let the puppies into the garden and instead of running across the patio and into the garden they stopped short at the edge of the patio. I walked down to see what had stopped them and I saw this
I ran back into the house to grab my camera when I heard a yelp and Flossie came tearing into the house as if the Devil himself was chasing her. I went outside with the camera and saw that Skeeter was not going to make the same mistake that Flossie obviously had.
I got Skeeter back into the house and checked on Flossie and she seemed to be fine albeit a little spooked. As the morning wore on it became apparent that the turtle had done a number on Flossie’s jowl.
If the swelling hasn’t gone down by tomorrow afternoon I shall take her to the Vets but I am pretty sure that her pride hurts more than the boo boo. One thing is for sure, it will be a cold day in hell before she messes with a Snapping Turtle again.
