There are so many tasties, how can I decide! I guess my favourite outside plants are dandies, clover and plantain. My favourite garden plants are hibiscus, hosta and pansies. So hungry now!

I’ve been thinking about asking mom for a “soft” spot in our pen. An area with a pillow to lay on and feel all luxurious. Dirt is fine but really, who wants dirt when you can have a pillow?

The sun is shining, 
My belly full of noms,
I made a giant poop,
All in the summer sun!

Sing it with me!

Grass clippings and dandies for breakfast today. Mom has been out a lot this week which is kind of poopy because I like having her around to give me skritches and turn on the tv. I think she is trying to make it up to us with fresh clippings but I think I may try to guilt her into a Jacuzzi for our new pen while she is still feeling guilty.

Hello! We had a strange summer in Canada too. Some days it was so hot we could only go out for an hour or two and some days it was so cold it was like late fall. Today was very nice and we spent the whole day grazing and sunning. I hope we get more days like this before the icky snow arrives.

I heard on tv the other day that the grass is greener on the other side. This morning mom took us out to the clover patch but I decided to walk across the street (mom accompanied me) and check out the boulevard. There were so many noms there! Mom told me that this is where she usually comes to pick our food because there are so many weeds there. There were also dandies! I walked around until I ate every last one. The lesson learned is that sometimes it does pay to take a risk and go on an adventure. Even if it is just across the street.

Mom caught me in action being bad. Not that it stopped me.

Hello Waffles! Im a future tortoise mom & I have a quick q. My grandma is convinced that everything my future baby comes into contact with will be tainted with salmonella. I dont think this is true, is it? What can I tell her to assure her it's fine?

Hello! Your grandmother is confusing us with our wonderful but slightly messier cousins, turtles. Turtles have a higher risk of salmonella because they live in the water and swim in their poo and pee. That’s not to say that torties have no risk in being carriers but our chances are far slimmer. I would tell your grandmom not to worry.

Hibiscus heaven! Mom got a bumper crop, six in total. I’m feeling so generous, I will even let Mango have one.
