Today was a sad day for me. One of my fanimaly members did not wake up this morning.
For the past 3 years, I have owned a dwarf turtle; Whom I still refer to as my “baby” turtle. Rocko never once complained about his life. As a baby, he grew up #crawling all over my bed, as if the lumps in the blankets were #fun hills for him to #climb over. When I was bed ridden for a year after my #accident in Dec.2013, this little guys kept me #company in more ways than I ever could have expected. #Rocko wasn’t just any turtle..He was one of my best friends! Right now, my heart is aching because I lost a child, a best friend and a #pet 🐢. In a lot of strange ways, Rocko and I were very much alike. Just like me, he could stare at the #flame of a candle/fire for hours straight. Every night, I would light a #candle just for Rocko to watch before we all went to bed🥊🐶🐱🐢🐠🕯😴. Tonight, Rally🐶 helped me dig her brother🐢 a hole at the park near my house. I found the perfect little #Christmas box to #burry him in🎁. We said our #goodbyes with a small candle, and left a few things on his #grave underneath mine and Rally’s favorite #PepperTree. We made sure to put Rocko’s plastic turtle girlfriend inside the Christmas #Coffin with him.
It’s gona be weird knowing that there’s only 4 of us at home now🏡🥊🐶🐱🐠. I’ll miss you my hungry hippo. You were the best baby turtle a red head could ever ask for. 🐢🙏✨ Best #turtle in the whole wide world of turtles
