Ginger tussles with a turtle

Ginger quickly learned not to tussle with turtles after a brief encounter in her yard. After tolerating a few sniffs, one rascally reptile took a bite out of the golden retriever’s snout, leading to lacerations and a trip to the emergency vet for antibiotics.

Pet tip: Check the yard for turtles — and other wildlife — before unleashing the hounds.
