Caitlin Gerrard also owns a turtle, named Turtellini. She wears gloves to hold Turtellini because touching turtles can sometimes transmit salmonella.

McLean If you need a puppy fix, McLean Central Park is the place to be.
The trails are worn well by human and canine feet alike, and you never know what kind of dog you will encounter.
You might find athletic Bella Jackson, a Weimaraner who powers easily over hills. Or you’ll bump into teetering Chester Arakelian, a Black Lab puppy who prefers to scoot through the forest.
Unfortunately, you will not find Langley High School’s Caitlin Gerrard walking her pet Turtellini. Turtellini cannot leave his aquarium because he is a turtle.
But no matter what, you will certainly see love. In McLean, dogs are people, too.
