Growing up, we didn’t have a lot of money so my parents really couldn’t afford to get us a dog. Keeping a dog is expensive, Since we lived way out in the middle of nowhere though, I was able to keep a turtle in a little blue kiddie pool. We called him Tippy. Naming a turtle is stupid because it’s not like they will come when you call them. They don’t really do much of anything but just kind of stand there all day. Sometimes I’d go days without even checking on him. He just stayed in his little blue pool out behind the shed with a cover over him. I wonder what Tippy thought about all those years? I don’t think he minded because turtles are pretty much solitary animals given the chance. I think he probably enjoyed his time alone in the pool by himself. I know one thing, he didn’t like the day Mr. Raccoon came to visit. Mr. Raccon tried to get Tippy out of his shell. Tippy must have put up a pretty good fight because he mostly stayed in his shell. He never was right after that and died a few days later. Of course, we didn’t find him for a few weeks later and Tippy was mostly just dried up and had flies on him the last time I saw him. I feel bad his last days were so isolated and alone. I wonder if he ever thought about us?

We had a mutt dog named Mickey. He was awesome and loved to play. I never saw him interact with many people because I was always alone in the back yard. That was a long time ago…
