    Best friends!

    I like to think that these two are the best of friends. Ginger ( dog ) always pouts when Dudley ( tort ) ignores her! Hah! However! I never leave the two alone due to the many horror stories I've heard about dogs and torts!

    I have had Dudley for 6 months now! He has most definitely gained weight and now eats whatever I put in front of him! When I first got him he had some minor pyramiding and if I'm not mistaken his shell seems to be smoothing out some! I think I'm doing pretty good for a newbie! :D
