Fish Funeral

well today we had quite the devastating incident... Austin came home from school and was doing homework at the table, when he looked at his fish and noticed that is wasn't swimming. He called me over and said the eyes were closed.. and I thought, oh man, I know what's wrong, he is going to be totally heart broken. And unfortunately, it was true, his blue "T-Rex" fish was a goner.. Then he said, well if he's dead, we have to give him a funeral and bury him. So we did just that. Austin kindly brought him out, and dug a hole, and laid him to rest. He cried a bit, and was a little sad. This is the second pet we lost, the first was a frog he won at the carnival several years ago.. So I guess this weekend we will be going down to get another one, esp since Sydney's fish is still alive...

Our Zachary went through the same ritual with his Betta, Fireball, about 3 years ago. At the time he was about the same age as Austin.

We no longer live in the home where we buried Fireball but had the chance to visit recently.

Thank you for sharing your story.
