Sounds like a dangerous rule that allows you son to get any pet he wants!

Cupboard, what a cute name.

I almost never come up with a name right away, takes a while for me to name them because I like to see their personality but that would be a very dangerous rule indeed! I have not yet been hit with the "no more tanks" or "no more fish" rule yet of which I am eternally grateful for but I don't think my dad could stop me even if he tried haha. But he knows it's the only thing I have for a true hobby anyway since Art and other Fine Art-like things are my Major and my career so thus, I needed an actual hobby since most other normal people have drawing or something of the like as a hobby. :D

My rule is: If you can get it past the front door it stays (At least until we can find a suitable home, sometimes that's with us sometimes not..depends on the circumstances.)

They have to look at me with the "I belong to you now eyes", if they get that right look at me, it makes me have to take them home.

My rule is they have to be named before we make the hour drive home or they tend to die the first 24 hours. (We tend to purchase sick bettas and some of them don't make it, no matter how badly we want them to)

I wish that was our rule... every time we go to the LFS I name just about every betta fish I see.

Hi guys, you've probably noticed I'm not on as much. The reason for that is the fact that I'm so much busier than I was last year. Also, I'm in the school play for once. (Squee!) So, I probably will be popping around everyone once in while anyway. But, until then- toodles!
