If you love something, set it free . . .

About a year and a half ago (November 2006), the wildlife clinic K volunteers with transfered a water turtle (yellow bellied slider) to her. A cute little guy, just over 7 grams and about the size of a quarter. Yesterday, weighing in at 125 g and with a shell about 4 inches long, we released her into the nearby lake. It’s easy to fall for a lot of the animals K rehabs. Their cute and tiny or just plain helpless and on the mend, but the turtles are particularly hard because K keeps them for so long. The following are a handful of the pictures we’ve taken of the turtle:

  • the first 6 pictures were taken in August 2007 when she was about 16 grams
  • the second 9 were taken in January 2008 when she was 25g and we were trying to tempt her into eating by giving her meal worms
  • the next 6 were taken yesterday before the release – 125g and big enough to defend herself
  • the last 3 were taken at the release in Jordan Lake

Good luck little turtle

And we know we can’t give it to them, but we know the dogs can.”In my latter teen years and then in my early adulthood, I have always had a struggle liking people who were “too perfect.” My coworkers in the newspaper business can testify to how I used to gripe a “blue streak” about how the media had cast The Osmonds Cheap Jerseys from china as “perfect” people. Isn’t that what the media tried to do with Kelly Ripa?Stephen Churchill, a lawyer for the plaintiffs in that case, told HuffPost that customers who order over the phone aren’t informed of the fee.

They should also have access to long term physical after care programs to address whatever lingering damage their bodies suffer while they are, uh, pursuing their education. But there may be too many barriers in the Cheap Football Jerseys way of those things ever actually happening. So how about this? How about anyone who earns a Division One football scholarship gets to return to school free of charge at any future NFL Wholesale Jerseys point until he earns a bachelor’s degree? That doesn’t cost anyone any extra money it just makes good on the lie that the schools are willing to trade education for athletic profiteering.
