RIP dear squirtle the turtle

Our pets are our family members. Plain and simple.

Today, I just have a small bit to share.

Our family turtle, whose nane was squirtle (as so named by my son), passed away.

He traveled cross-country with us from Los Angeles to New York. He loved the car ride. He danced throughout the whole trip. He was quite steakthy when we snuck him into hotels cross-trip. He would pop out his head to singing. He loved a siren song. He would scamper about.

He was originally smaller than my thumb. He grew to be bigger than my hand. He had a goofy personality.

Some may say he was just a turtle. But all creatures deserve an ode and a tear at their passing. And, he was loved.
