We have a pet fish, who we never bothered to name. We bought out pet fish as a surprise for our fishies: Bloop, Speedy, and Barney. The Fish With No Name ate our pets while we slept. The boys were traumatizes, especially when all the Fish With No Name left behind was Bloop's head.
Months had passed and Jackson declared he wanted a pet. Cats and dogs are out due to allergies. He didn't want another fish, because they are boring and don't do anything. Jesse and I decided on a Leopard Gecko. His name is Leo, and the boys adore him. Well, Jack and TJ adore him, Ashton is indifferent to him and Jesse thinks he is cool, but refuses to actually touch him!
All in all, our family pet is the perfect addition to this household.
