Farewell Sheldon... @ 10:15 am

Well, I said goodbye to Sheldon not so long ago. The kids and I were looking after him at after school care and although he seemed to be having a great time, I decided it was only fair to let Sheldon experience the great outdoors. The children agreed and we set him free at the local pond that he was first found as a tadpole.

Was a very sad day for me, but I have had Sheldon for over three years now (hard to believe!) and I kept having dreams that he wanted to be set free, and it seemed the right thing to do given that he may not live a whole lot longer.

He jumped away very happily.. I'm sure he is having a fantastic time with all the other little froggies...

I had this pic taken with him on our last day together...








These above two were taken in the first few months after he turned into a frog!

Will miss you, my little Sheldon xx

Safe journey to you, Sheldon. May the flies be plentiful and may you always have a wet pond to swim in.

I NAMED THAT FROG! I NAMED HIM!

He's as beautiful as you. Almost. :) <3

I hope he's happy in the wilderness. Bless his little webbed feet.

LOVE!
