Today, Shelby left us.

I got a call at the library that my turtle has left her kiddie pool. We thought it was Dexter, but it wasn't.

She was really colorful RES. I just don't think she will make it in the wild. I don't know what else to say. We lost a family member.

Turtles:

She may come back to you. With turtles, it could take a long time, but even if it takes years, she may find you again. I hope so. Best of luck.
