Silly Mom had left her phone in the car as it had looked like it was going to rain so while we kept watch another lady went to call the Base Police. They came very quickly and checked the little turtle - it was still flapping it's flippers so we knew it alive. They in turn called the turtle rescue and as luck would have it - one of the police officers actually volunteers with the turtle rescue and he told everyone I WAS RIGHT - that we shouldn't touch it and that we did the right thing calling them. Sadly we had to leave before the turtle rescue came (it was still very hot and Mom was worried about us over heating) but the police said they would stay there and wait. The little turtle will no doubt spend the next few week recovering at the turtle rescue center.
Mom was so proud of ME for doing my bark ranger duties so well that when we got home I not only got a Frosty Paw - but 2 cookies as well !!!!! Bark Ranger Reilly at your service :)
