Murdoch Died.

Came home to a dead Murdoch laying belly up and greyish on the bottom of his bowl. I'm baffled.

I just changed the water last night, did everything as I usually did. I can only think maybe he really was a grumpy old man when I got him.

I haven't told my daughter and won't until morning. His bowl was on the dining room table and she used to eat her breakfast with him 'talking to her' every morning.

'Murdoch told me he likes me.'
'Murdoch sez he likes toast...does he like peanut butter?' (No, she never fed him any. lol)
'Murdoch told me he likes potatoes and butterflies... and CARS.'
'Murdoch thinks Toopy is a silly mouse.'

:(

Rest In Peace my Grumpy Boy...I hope you went quickly. I'm gonna give Farnham your bowl...he's the only grump left and Kierdyn will force him to be friendly over breakfast.

Bye Luvly. <3

Thanks Guys!

My daughter took it rather well, but she wanted Splendyn (yellow/green puppy fish) in Murdoch's bowl instead so we moved Splenny and he seemed really happy to have brekky with the munchkin today.

Besides she thinks he's the prettiest of them all.

Me? Well, I walked in the door today after work and instantly my eyes went to the bowl on the table expecting my little blue blur to zoom by and when a big yellow-green blur did instead I got a little sad. If Splen didn't like Murdoch's bowl SO much I think it'd be harder to see but he's made a HUGE bubblenest already and claimed it.
