A Golden Year
Happy New Year. Meet our new family members Shark and Ashley. Each morning I wake up and am eager to see if they made it through the night. It's been 7 days now and the are going strong. When I got them at the pet store the empoyee who helped me seemed pretty sure they would die. She encouraged me to start with the "cheap gold fish" because we might "go through a few of them at the beginning". Whatever, alright, so we hand picked the two we wanted. I must say I've grown quite found of these two little guys. Ashley likes to hang out in the back of the tank, I think she is a little shy. Shark has the black mohawk and watch out, he is just as wild as he looks. This is going to be a good year. The Chinese say gold fish bring good luck and I believe it. These little fish make us happy.
