RIP: Porky

My sister just called with very sad news. Our beta fish that we left in her care during our Peace Corps service has passed away. Porcus Puff, known to close friends as Porky, was a wonderful fish. He never asked for much, just clean water once a week and a few sprinkles of beta food each day. He liked to excercise by fighting his own image in a mirror. Getting him out of the city and moving to the country in our absence did wonders to his health. He lived to the ripe old age of 1.5 years. Which is a record in our fish owning experience. Thank you, Erin, for your wonderful job as a caretaker - we couldn't have asked for anyone better. And thank you Porky for all the memories. We hope you enjoy the big fish bowl in the sky.
Peace & Love,
Your Owners - Kae and Shane
Note: The picture isn't really Porky, he wasn't very photogenic so he asked us to use a model.

Bon Voyage Porky!
Funny the picture of the model fish looks just like Mango the new Beta, that has replaced Porky in his bowl.
Whatever happened to a mourning period!
