Tar's Sunday Morning Offering

Tar is a pretty lazy old dog. These days he doesn't do much but eat and sleep, so we were pretty surprised when we opened the door to let him in after his morning's constitutional this morning to find he had befriended a turtle on his way home. We were at first concerned for it's welfare, seeing as how it sat so still, head and limbs tucked securely inside its shell as turtles are apt to do. Closer examination revealed the turtle had fared quite well, no harm done; Tar must have carried him with care, although he guarded him on our doorstep as prey caught for the kill.

Gingerly placed back in the woods behind our house, surely the turtle will find his way back to his creek bed and Tar will eat his normal breakfast as usual.
