Goodbye to Shelby

A while back I spoofed some sites that were holding household pets for ransom over at www.saveshelby.com & www.smashshelby.com. The sites were just for fun but I did get a couple negative reactions to it and so I wanted to point out that not only has Shelby been saved, but he has been returned to his home state.
Because he came to us on a celery stalk from California and because Minnesota winters don’t seem like the type of thing such a snail can withstand (though I may be wrong), Jena and I decided the only thing to do was to pack Shelby up on a recent trip to San Diego and bring her home. The photo shown here is on Shelby just after we released her in Balboa Park outside the famed San Diego Zoo.
