Not a lot more is known about Sam as he’s very shy and tends not to say much, which is probably why Turtle likes him so much. Plus, Sam’s pretty clever and always knows the best and fastest way to get a brew on.


  1. they are all so cute xx!

  2. I am going to share Turtle with all of my friends. I have lovely friends and it seems Turtle does, also.

  3. Would like to say thank you to Turtle for introducing his friends, I for one feel very honored as you dont introduce your friends to just anyone. Turtle is a very lucky Tortoise, good friends are hard to find so to have so many says a lot about Turtle! x

  4. I adore Turtles and this blog rocks.

Turtle appreciates your comments. They're as tasty to him as a hot, steamy tea on a cold, wintry night.
