^ Thank you... I miss him deeply, but his passing really has affected my 2.5 yr old son more than either myself or my husband. He cried over him yesterday, and insisted I was telling him a "story" about Poisson being gone. He loved him dearly, we all did

I had raised him from a 4wk old pup, & losing him truly broke my heart, but also I knew I was acting in his best interest, as I was with Poisson, when I had to euthanize him. I firmly believe this philosophy: When u love an animal as part of the family, it's best to let go when it's obvious that they're not getting better (whatever the health issues they may be facing), and keeping them alive brings them senseless suffering. It's only right, if they're declining rapidly.

Poisson wasn't one of my 1st, but he was my son's 1st betta, 4 that matter, his very 1st pet. He is still completely devastated by Poisson's passing. I'm still doing my best, helping him cope as much as I can, but he is only 2 1/2, and really 2 young 2 understand the cycle of life. Poisson will forever remain in my heart, and I'm sure lil man's as well. He was a very special betta, and I wish I'd been able to breed my gentle giant successfully b4 he died.... I would at the very least have had his fry to pass his awesome genetics down... He was unique 4 sure.
