Miracle of all miracles! The two most recent goldfishes that Princess One and Princess Two won during the Orange County (OC) Fair are still alive! They brought home one when the Fair started but it only survived for 5 short days. These 2 have survived for 10 days, and hopefully more.
You might wonder why this seems to be an important event for me. Let me explain why. I love pets and I grew up sleeping with cats and playing with dogs. Then I married my husband who is totally allergic to anything furry, and now I have a daughter (Princess One) who is absolutely scared of anything furry. So I became a petless animal lover. As a compromise, we settled for goldfish. It's not furry, and doesn't need potty-training, but it's lifespan is way too short, which breaks my heart whenever it dies. We stopped having a pet fish for a few years until OC Fair kicked in. I was intent on not having one for the rest of our lives but seeing how the girls take care of the fishes, making sure that they're not overfed and that they live in clean water, my opinion is starting to change. Perhaps, having pets will teach the girls to be more responsible, more compassionate, more caring - I don't know. What I do know right now is to live in the moment and enjoy the pet fishes while they last, just like how I enjoy and savor the presence of my daughters who, in their own due time will spread their wings and leave our nest.
How about you, do you have pets? Why or why not?
