I seem to remember this from waaaay back and now I can't find one. Always worth a quick look I thought.

I'll start: this is Senator Thompson Burnelli:

I think he's a Norwegian Forest Cat, but I dunno; he followed me home and now lives with us.

Picked up a puppy from the shelter a couple months ago.

Randy Bobandy (the cheeseburger walrus). Mixed breed something or other; shelter claimed lab/terrier, but he's ridiculously hound like.

Big one is Bordeaux the rott mix who we believe is "special". (As in special sized bus she would ride on)
Weenie dog is Lacy, who actually runs the show around the house and is my enforcer for controlling BOrdeaux when she goes nuts.

The Betta fish I've had for a month (my first pet since like, childhood) now jumps half his body length out of the water to catch his food like a damn dog.

The first time he did it I wasn't even sure I really saw what I saw. He caught all 3 fucking pellets at once. Now I've figured out how to get him to repeat it - I just have to wait until he swims to the surface and starts opening and closing his mouth like HURRY UP FUCKFACE.

The food comes in a package that is like a little maze puzzle to solve to help keep you from overfeeding. While I stand there solving for x=3 he goes batshit. When I had my mom practice it (I'm going to the beach for a week) she was taking so long I thought the poor guy was going to hurt himself from spinning like a hurricane.

CSB as to why I have a fish: On a really busy week at work I sent an email stating that I had to go home for the week because my goldfish was sick. I don't have a goldfish, but the joke kept going. His name was Flushy and I had an all night vigil (and thus was too tired to work) and later held a wake (too hung over to work) and so on. Well this was the week before my birthday. So on my b-day the first thing I say is "... you have better not gotten me a fish." They got me a fish.

Thanks to guilt for the jokes I had made about "Flushy" I was more worried about keeping that bugger alive the first few weeks than I was about turning 40. At this point though he doesn't even sulk and play dead for half the day when I change out his water.

I always thought fish were more decoration than pets. But Bettas are a trip.

You should try out saltwater fish, big ones can be crazy smart/personality. N

No personality, but I love mandarins. And below is a video of my old tank kinda at the start of going downhill before I had to sell due to a move. (Bit of neglect from 80 hour weeks)

Going to combine a pet story with a GHBYH story.

Few years back I got a red tail x tiger shovel nose catfish hybrid from a friend who didn't realize how big they could get. Myself at the time, I only had a 225 gallon tank at the time, but it was good enough for the size of the fish at the time. I tried to give this fish away for a little over a year before I decided the hell with it and essentially converted my garage into an indoor pond specifically for this fish. I had the pond running for about 3 years and the fish was almost 4 feet long, truly a beautiful specimen.

Here's where the girl comes in. We had a particularly bad break up, mainly because I don't like her fucking guys who aren't me. This girl breaks into my garage while I'm at work and absolutely destroys my pond and kills my fish. Crazy bitch actually sent me picture of her handiwork which helped the legal case against her. I miss the hell out of that fish, and just frankly haven't had the time or energy to rebuild another enclosure like that again.

From today, storm knocked a big ass branch down and it snapped and fell into our yard. Broke the rest of it off and Daisy couldn't be happier.

Holy fucking shit, what?

Being a rip-roaring piece of shit to your fellow man, I can respect that. But cruelty to animals. I just don't get it, at all.

Even just the 'animals are expendable' angle. There's a few guys that work at my local fish store that have a pretty relaxed view on responsible fish keeping. Tank crashes, adding predator fish to community tanks 'just to see what happens', the whole shebang. Same guys that are proponents for cycling a new tank by dropping in fish until they stop dying from ammonia poisoning. Granted I can see getting desensitized to it working at a store that probably sees dozens of dead/dying fish any given month, but shit.
