White Dog and Steve discussed the weather forecast for overnight and decided that it might be too cold to leave Tortuga outside in his pen. Even though we have not prepared his winter hibernation space in the basement we didn't want to risk his health by making the cold-blooded reptile stay where he could not burrow to get warmer (which is what he would do in nature). So Steve and White Dog carried the tortoise inside and gave him temporary shelter in the bathtub. Tortuga wasn't very happy about the move but at least he was warm. Throughout the night I heard White Dog go into the bathroom to check on Tortuga and then quietly return to bed.
