Owen's betta fish Finny died yesterday. He had been poorly for weeks and weeks, unable to swim well due to (I think) swim bladder disease. We could nothing except keep his bowl clean and give him pep talks. He managed to galumph around his bowl for the longest time, coming out from behind his rock to check out what the cats were doing, etc. He was such a good fish.

Anyway, yesterday before I woke up I had a vivid dream where Finny was swimming normally in his bowl, his scales the same vibrant red and purple they were in his youth, and when I woke up I knew Finny had died. I was right. Owen took it pretty bad when he came home from school, but when the tears dried he asked to write Finny a note. This is what he drew:Collapse )
