Stupid Pet Tricks
I just have to share this story ... My 5 year old has a big black google eyed goldfish 'Blackie'. This morning Blackie is nowhere to be seen in his tank. My sons eventually get their Daddy to help find him. Well Hubby reluctantly puts his newspaper down and goes and looks - doesn't see the fish any where. Hubby even starts to pull some of the plants and the fake log out of the water to see better. He doesn't see the fish so he comes into the living room and announces 'The Cat ate the fish!' I am not proud of this - but I start laughing because he looks honest to goodness sad (sorry)! Meanwhile my 5 and 7 year old boys start crying and yelling 'BAD KITY, BAD KITY!' Cat is just sitting here all innocent like. Meanwhile hubby is going to clean up the tank and mess he previously made. He looks down at the fake log that he had taken out of the tank a couple minutes before -- the fish is stuck in one of the holes!! 'Blackie' the google eyed fish is OK!! After being push thru the hole, He looks to be missing a few scales, but is fine. He is back in his tank safe and sound. I wonder if he is thinking he needs to go on a diet??
