At one point in time we had a house full of Beta fish, as of today we have none. The survivor, the last of an era, the valiant Baby S died this morning. Our Beta fish are what originally got me into blogging (www.clubbeta.blogspot.com) but now they are a thing of the past. The arrival of our dogs are what turned the tide. The fish took a backseat and never recovered. After all, fish don’t get excited when you come home, they don’t play fetch, and they don’t have very much character. Who know’s, maybe we’ll get some more some day (we do have a bunch of empty tanks now), but for now the day of the Beta is over and the time of the Basset is here.
