Happy New Year! Meet Drifter!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is enjoying the start of 2016!

If you come by Paw Province often, your year will be filled with lots of animal fun!

To kick off the new year, I would like to introduce you to a new member of the Paw Province family.

Yesterday you met Sadie, my new pet garden slug.

Today you can meet someone else very slimy.

Not a slug, but a snail.

On Wednesday, me and my friend spotted a snail (one of the biggest snails I've seen where I live) perched on a rock in the creek, surrounded by murky water.

The poor guy couldn't move anywhere, and if he did, he would have surely fell into the water.

We fetched a net and headed into the creek.

The snail fell into the water before we got to him, but he was still sticking to the side of the rock. It didn't really matter though, for he was still drowning.

Luckily, we were quick enough to save him.

We named him Drifter because he drifted into the water.

He's the largest snail I've ever owned...even larger than Clint!

I love how Sadie waved her eye stalks when I found her, but boy, this guy totally nails it with his stalks!

He waves them all day and loves to climb my fingers.

Drifter's middle name is Addison, just in case you were wondering.

The photo below actually doesn't look much like him even though it's him...his body is actually a bit more yellow, and his foot is very long compared to his head.

Drifter is excited to start the new year off with lots of slimy adventures with me, Sadie, Rocky, and all the other friends he meets along the way!
