Woof everypups and everycats. Today is a sad day. We have to say goodbye to our tortoise brother(or sister) Brutus. Mom doesn't want to give him up but she doesn't want baby tortoises either. And since she is beginning to believe that Brutus is actually a girl tortoise and Cato is a boy tortoise, she decided to find one of them a good home. Cato is a special needs tortoise(he has a damaged beak and needs help eating) so Mom found a home for Brutus. We told Mom to take the tortoises to the Doggie Doctor and get them neutered but she just looked at us like we were crazy. Anyway we will miss him because he is just like us. He likes to chew on everything and dig holes, kind of like a tiny dog with a tortoise shell on his back.

hey Desert Pups,

I am so sad for you! I hate losing friends, and Brutus seems like he (she??) was a great friend to have around. I am sorry she (he??) had to go, but am furry happy that he (she??) found a loving home.

I hope Cato is OK. It must be especially sad for Cato to lose his (her??) close friend. But, at least you pups still have a digging partner with Cato!


p.s. So, tortoises can dig and dogs can't; and dogs have to get neutered, but tortoises don't. I think tortoises may be a bit smarter than us dogs.
