Talking My Christmas gift to myself

May I present to you Hagrid, my new King! Yes, I know it's not Christmas. So it took me a while to upload pictures, okay?

On Christmas Eve we went to dinner with my grandma, and on the way I picked up the boy I've been planning on getting for a while (I was afraid the shops would be closed after). It was so cold outside that I had to take him into the resturant with me. I was so nervous, trying to hide him in my arms and doing the "nothing to see here" look. XD No one noticed.

We then went to Christmas Eve, and I didn't bother to hide him. Everyone was staring at me, but the church was so full that we had to stand anyway. XD

I think he's beautiful. He's so lively and active! He's enjoying ten gallons to himself. He's definately a big boy.

(Hey, fellow Harry Potter nerds, does anyone know why I named him Hagrid?)

Thank you! The first things I noticed about him were his eyes and his color. He's got a great personality too--he swims all around and flares at everything. I love his puppy-dog face!

Thanks! Do you think that's a trait of Kings? I've noticed they all pretty much have the puppy face.

I love the name! It fits because Hagrid is a big fella too xD He's beautiful! I love the last picture of him in his little cave :D How many inches is he?

More precisely, because they're both half-giant. Or so I've heard about kings.

I'm not sure about how long he is...I'm guessing two, two and a half inches, including his tail? Makes him sound small, lol!

Yeah, I saw the pictures you posted when you got him! He's SO CUTE! I love him!

Is he small or are the cups where you are bigger? Somehow it looks different to me, lol...
