Meet Pork and Beans

I didn't realize it's been a long while since I had a pet. You see I have this problem of getting too attached to my pets. And when they die (gulp) I end up mourning till I'm literally blue from crying. Oh well, sometimes we just really don't grow up at all.

It's been 4 years since Oscar, my Oscar, died. Snakey, the snake fish, soon followed and my Mom just dumped Johnny, the janitor fish, in the creek behind our house because he was the culprit in Oscar and Snakey's death. I then had Ham and Egg, hamsters, but they got away while I was cleaning their cage and then Pork & Beans, black mollies who fell in the sink in the office (waaaaah!). Sigh. I then tried with Lucky, my fighting fish inspiration behind Luk4, but the janitor overfed him when I went on Christmas vacation. After that I thought it was too much to have a pet. Sigh.

Anyway, since it's been a long time already, I thought it's about time I get another pet. So I'm starting with the basics - 2 fighting fishes! Meet Pork and Beans -

I guess Pork and Beans wouldn't be intriga at all than displaying someone's photo on my desk.

    I met these cute little buggers last night. Gorgeous colours! And thanks for the trivia (why you keep them separate from each other cuz they fight and there's no fighting --- peace tayong lahat --- diba? hence, their name!) on the fighting fish , Aileen! (not to mention the link, too!) :)

  3. @Marc: Kung okay pa yung suha bukas, I'll bring it sa badminton! Huwag muna dog, I'm taking baby steps here. Hehehe.

    @Sasha: My pets are bored! Minsan I'll make them fight! ;p

  4. when i read, your post title, i thought you were talking about Pork and Beans...Hunts? We had coys fish that we bought for our outdoor pond few years ago tue eat mosquito larvas..then wintertime came, we dont want them to die, so we decided to buy an aquarium for them, then non of them survive, so we bought new fishes again coz we had empty aquarium, it took as a long try to learn how to take care of our fishes. Try dogs, they are great! I have some dogs articles in my blogs..

  5. @Jazevox - Maybe later this year. I travel a lot and at this point I think getting a dog would be a huge commitment! LOL. I might get some rabbits this weekend though :p
