Walk-A-Turtle

A friend of mom's suggested that we give Vincenzo some outdoor time so he can enjoy the grass and sunshine, so this evening I took him outside for a little while. He waited until he was certain there were no threats and then started bumping through the grass and onto the gravel walk. I really, really wish I'd had the camera handy to get photographic evidence, but I didn't.
Vincenzo.... walked!
He still prefers to drag himself with his hind legs tucked into his shell, but he did indeed manage about three steps with the assistance of one hind leg or the other, but not both at the same time. It's so exciting! Like I said, I wish I had pictures. Squeeee!
I'll have to work on details for the turtle sweater contest now, won't I? :P

Yay! Yay! Yay! Maybe he just needed a little inspiration to get off his rear!

Oh!!! Wonderful!! So he isn't paralyzed afterall. Maybe he just needs some turtle physical therapy!
