And Bettas are very addicting in a way. I got my first Betta, Abacus, about 5 months ago and now I have 7 tanks!
Since I have Drax I'm not always worrying about Pepper now... I can simply enjoy both animals! Well of course I worry and help Pepper but I'm not as depressed as I was. So I enjoy helping her... even if it is abit upsetting having to carry your 75Lb Husky, Wrotty, Lab mix up and down the Back steps when she needs to go out. She can get down the steps but not back up because of her Arthritis. Which we give her alot of meds for and honestly thats all thats wrong with her so far. Otherwise she's a very happy old dog wouldnt be surprised if she breaks 17 haha.
XP as one person told me "DUDE! She's in pain! Put her down!"
She's ... not in pain... If she was in pain she wouldn't try to get up and follow you around the house for attention or shadow you around the kitchen when your cooking in the hopes of getting a treat haha.
