Lazar Wolf

Last weekend Joseph and I went to visit my family and came home with a new pet, to the insistence of my dad.

This little guy walked under my dad’s foot, so he was picked up and set in a jar for the day, mainly so my nieces could look at him.

We decided to name him Lazar Wolf.  Appropriate, yes?

Doesn’t he have the cutest little face?

Lazar Wolf has a pretty good life for a turtle, as I couldn’t talk Jospeh out of buying him a 15-gallon tank (though I did talk him down from the 26-gallon one he was eyeing).  I made a mound of rocks in one corner so he could  sunbathe, and lately he’s preferred sitting with his body half in and half out of the water.


A very unrelated question: Would you guys prefer I post my Prompted 365 photos every other week like I have been doing or change that to once a week? I don’t want this blog to concentrate too heavily on my 365, but I am not sure how my readers feel about having 14 photos in one post at one time. Please let me know which you would prefer!


  • Love that little guy! My daughter caught a little turtle today too but I wasn’t there to tell them to bring it home! :o(

    Once a week would be great!

  • Such a cute little turtle! We’ve found a couple in our backyard before but they were rather large turtles – not sure how they wandered in there!

    Definitely do 365 once I week. I love reading your posts :)

      It’s so great to hear from you Shell!

      And thank you :) I think I am going to make my first weekly 365 post today since a few friends encouraged I do it.

  • […] They brought my nine year-old niece Avery who I have really missed up here. She told her mom she wanted to see our house and “get to see Alyssa, Joseph, their cat that pees in the toilet, and their crazy dog.” Our toilet-using cat and crazy dog are pretty much what we’re known for, but she did forget about Lazar Wolf!
