Thanks guys. It was a pretty awful day. But I will say I never expected Artie to make it a full year. He has always had so many health issues. Still sad to see him go. I don't think I will be replacing him. Instead, when I redo the 10g next week (my plants from peachii can't be shipped until next week so delaying the redo a bit) I am just going to undo the divider and give Blizzard the whole 10g. He is a very active boy and I think he will make full use of the tank. Debating if I want to try shrimp with Blizzard. He has left the snail alone but he is an avid hunter of all things wormy in the tank. May try a few cheap ghost shrimp and see how they do before going with the more expensive red cherries.
We should be getting the call on my puppy's bloodwork today. Fingers crossed it comes back more positive than my over active imagination is expecting. I love my puppy! Luckily my horse TJ's yearly winnings check is coming in and will cover the vet expenses so that is one weight off. Though I was hoping to use that money for something else but not a necessity.
On a good note, Dusty one a contest! I am going to be getting a drawing and a prose written for him. Pretty cool! Cant wait to see what they come up with!
