My little girl in her tiny tort bath – she was just about to turn 6 months old when I heard “the sound.”

I will never ever forget the first time it happened.

I was sitting beside Malti while she took a bath in her itty bitty tortoise tub.

Then all of a sudden I heard it….the tiniest of oh-so-delicate Tinkerbell farts.

At first, thinking I must be hearing things, I looked all around me. There was no one else in sight.

I knew I didn’t do it. So that only left….I looked down at her, soaking there in her bowl, and she didn’t bat an eye. She was as calm and self-contained as, well, a tiny tort who just farted and didn’t think anything of it.

By the way, it has happened many, many times since then. I no longer look around me, either, because I know exactly who did it.

(For the record, I have never heard her box turtle brother, Bruce, fart. And I’ve never heard any other shelled being fart either. And this was definitely the first time I ever heard a fart and thought dotingly, “Awww – how CUTE!”)

And remember…..

  1. How funny!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Our old dog started farting several years ago when she was having some intestinal issues. She’s on two medications now so doesn’t do it as much, but when she does we always crack up!

    1. I love it! The best part to me is how oblivious they seem to be….like, if a person just let loose like that there would be all kinds of embarrassment and oh so sorry….animals donโ€™t even realize.;)
