The Painted Turtles
It's that time of year again when we need to do a turtle check of the back yard before letting the sled dogs out to play. We've rescued many a turtle, just minding their own business, trying to find a good spot to lay their eggs in sled dog territory. We continue to see the very same turtles each year as they migrate up the shore line from Oake Lake. How do we know? Well, they've got distinguishing edges to their shells where someone has tried to make a chew toy out of them.
