Unhappy Fishstick, Remembered

Dear Sweet Fishstick,

You were my one and only betta. I never thought I could grieve this much for "just a fish" but you were not just a fish my dear friend, you were more than some may realize. You were a personality, a force, driven by different emotions and needs, thoughts and desires, and much more than the supposed mindless drifter swimming in whatever direction you were taken.

You were there when I got home, ready to greet me with your wagging fin. Excited at the prospect of new treats, curious as to the barking sessions of your brother, Achilles. Partaking in family discussions, actively interested in the everyday events of those with whom you shared your life, seeming to genuinely enjoy our company as we did yours. Playing hide and seek with us in your den.

Forever shall we miss your enthusiasm, your "bubbly" personality, your sense of humor, and the lessons you taught us.

Your brilliant colors shine on.

Love always,
Your Mama & Family

Thank you Superfly, I hope I was - I certainly tried to be. We do hope that he is swimming happily and enjoying himself wherever he may be, knowing that we miss him but are happy that he shared his life with us.

As for his name, he picked it! I promise he did!

It is. We had a memorial service for him yesterday. However, well wishes and kind words from people like you really do help. It is comforting to know that people will think of Fishstick fondly :)

Oh goodness, I can't imagine sending Fishstick down the loo. I suppose there are instances where people don't have much of a choice, so that's their best option, but it seems so irreverent if it's at all avoidable. I don't have a backyard so I may or may not have buried him in the cemetery next to my Nina. (I say may or may not because this may be illegal??) But it seems to me that he, and all others, deserve a more dignified resting place, and so he's next to my loved one in his little house that he loved so much with stones to mark his place.
