My old turtle buddy

It is hard to interact with my buddy and try to 'shoot' him at the same time.Often at night I walk out of the shed to find my friend in the little stream,looking up at me.I have seen him bite a chicken leg in two,like it was a twig!Sometimes he comes when I call him.I feed him scraps like I would a dog.Raw stuff is his favorite.One afternoon a few days ago,I had two neighbors come to see him.For the first time ever,and being a little bit drunk,I fed him a hot dog by hand!There are three different kind of
water turtles in there,and one type on land. And,oh yeah,I have known him for about fifteen years now.
