Rocky the turtle returns

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:24 pm on 10 October 2012

Rocky is the much-loved pet at the Tainui Village Rest Home in New Plymouth. That is until about seven months ago. Then Rocky just disappeared. For seven months the residents would ask, "Where's Rocky?" They put signs up asking if anyone had seen her. They never gave up hope. Then this weekend, out of the blue, a staff member heard something knocking on the back door. It was Rocky. She had come home.
