The He Said She Said of Turtle Names

I am very familiar with the predicament presented in this story about a rescued Loggerhead turtle.  When I first got Pokey, she was still too young for veterinarians to discern her sex.  I waited several years and then carried her to a reptile show at the mall for assessment.  It was there that I learned my little turtle was a lady.  I wished I could have carried her there in a blinged out small dog purse to help her flaunt her identity.  Maybe I still should get her one, for fancy transportation to and from her vet check ups.  After all, we do live in Santa Barbara.  Pets here usually travel in style.
