Oh my gosh, Sakura. I'm so saddened to hear. It's never easy to lose a beloved pet. Not even when it's the right choice to make for them. I still cry for my dog Coco. It's almost the 1 year mark of him being gone. I dream about him multiple times a week but in all the dreams I'm spending time with him and he's happy. Far cry from the state he was in when we made our decision.
You are not alone though. You gave Kelsey a good life, without you she would not have been able to live this long and good. Animals complete us, I know that. I know you are strong and will smile again. The 8 can retain her memory. The way I see it, I don't physically have Coco but I will always have him spiritually.
Silverfang... um... can you PM me some good shrimp resources? I don't want ghosts again if I do decide to get some.
awe i'm so sorry about Kelsey Sakura. Sounds like it was for the best though.
That swordtail girl is STILL kicking...just swims on her belly. Not sure whether to call the store and ask what to do with her, or let her live out her life here with me. I think she's eating, but i cant say i've seen her do it. I'll keep watching her i guess!
