Dennis


Dennis is my Betta fish whom I inherited from school. I have become very attached to him. Now he is sick. He had a bout of "ick" which I treated and from which he recovered.
But for the last few days he has just sat on the bottom of the tank not moving much. After consulting with Alycat she explained that fish don't live as long as dogs and cats... or even chickens...
sigh.
I know there are those who would say "its just a fish" but not to me.
I have a relationship with the little blue finned fellow. I greet him morning and night. He follows my finger and "flares" his fins for me. He's not just a fish. He has a name, he has a place in my heart.
He's Dennis. And I fear he is dying.
