Stella, The Great Turtle Hunter.

Stella, the smaller of the beagle sisters is a great turtle hunter. There have been several instances of her incessant barking and when investigated the object of her attention was a Box Turtle . The turtle, safely housed in it's shell, regards her with impunity. Today she (we think) brought one home. We found it by the front steps. I just wish she would change her attention to rabbits. They make a better meal than turtle.

We never had a dog that chased turtles but we had two sons that did.
And I had to help. We never ate them but one was carried to school in a wire laundry basket.
And frogs. They collected frogs.
And again I had to help.
One time when they had a barrel of frogs from the creek, a barrel, mind you, I did help tip it over!!
And we never tried eating them either.

A mom had to be young to keep up with our boys.
