Tortoise Update

The vet was giving Susie artificial respiration: she bit off a chunk of his lip.

Poor vet. But I'm glad Susie is alive. And I want to see pictures of the pair of them. (The tortises--not Susie and the vet. And how in the heck do you spell tortises, anyway?) Blast!

Ha Ha. That sounds so funny. Poor vet. Didn't realise that tortoises were protective like that.

LOL. I know it's probably not funny, but omg it sounds funny. Glad Susie's hanging in there.

Tortoises BITE?

And on the LIP????

You wicked woman, you've made a lightbulb ping *g*

(But I'm very glad she's alive. Especially after the trauma you all suffered earlier.)

Ouch, have you got a ninja tortoise there? And isn't biting unfair even for ninjas?

Hooray for Susie. Poor vet. I'll bet that bite will be immortalized in the annals of veterinary medicine.

Also, very happy for your dad. It's a great relief to know you are not the cause of tortoise demise, I'm sure. And good for you mum who seems to have been instrumental in tortoise resuscitation.
