Zippie is 1 year old!

When my cousin Kristin got married, she had her reception at the beach and had fish on all the tables with sea shells. As a result, Brian and I ended up with about 10 + fish. Zippie is a survivor. The others all died after about 1 week. 2 weeks top! He has lasted a year in very toxic environments such as the one pictured above. He has also gone without food for an extended period of time, such as our trip to Disney World). So as a gift to Zippie, I cleaned his bowl! Happy Birthday Zippie. We really do love you!
FYI- Brian and I are better parents than pet owners.

    That's so funny! Now watch, he'll go and die on you!

    Actually, Charlie said the comment about the fish story. I apparently don't have a dedicated account. But it was me this time,

    Yeah! Good on ya, Zippie! Our guppies aren't doing so well. We bought 6 on Saturday. We're down to 1, and two babies that survived being eaten! 🙂

    That is why we have no pets! That's pretty amazing that Zippie survived! The pictures of Nathan and Kennedy totally made me smile! They are so precious!
    Love, Jules
