R.I.P Dorothy

Savannah's first ever fish has died.....Dorothy has not been doing too well all week long and this morning we found her laying @ the bottom of the fish tank. Dave and I went back and forth on whether to tell her, replace it before she knew or what!!!! Its hard knowing that we could prevent the heartache for her but also this might help prepare her for when one of our bigger pets pass away! We didn't say anything and then she noticed her and asked if Dorothy was dead :( We told her it looks like it and we were sorry, we did all we could but sometimes you get so sick you cannot get better. She had a hard time with it and FREAKED at the idea of flushing her, so we put her in a jar and buried her in the backyard. Dave & Savannah are at Petsmart right now finding a new Dorothy for our family.

  1. Just wait, if you ever move you might be trying to find that jar and digging her up to take with you! We still have Lil in a box waiting to find another resting place!
