Photo Hunt: Rocks




My daughter had her beta fish, Julian, for 7 months now, and she's been wanting to get more fish once her beta fish turns 1. She's been begging me to get more beautiful rocks for her fish tank too.

I did make a promise that if the fish didn't die, we could get more. Now she wants a gold fish. Actually, she's considering getting a different pet this time. How do I let her forget about getting a new pet? HELP!

I am so not a pet person ... I've been lucky that my animal-loving daughter hasn't pushed the issue too much.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy photo hunting!

I'm going to go check out the Red Rock Canyon photos now.

fish tanks are nice, seem like too much work to me. good luck
It's hard to say no.
My daughter wants a dog and a horse. she needs to settle for Kitty cause our apartment would not hold the other two.

Thanks for coming by my blog. Beta fish are easier to take care of than a goldfish. The goldfish would need a bigger tank with a filter and all that. Maybe if your daughter raised the money herself for a new tank and all the stuff needed for it, she would be responsible for taking care of it. Once you have the tank, it's not so hard to maintain it. Good luck!

I always wanted to have an aquarium but I heard it is difficult to maintain therm?

Junnie said...

it should be no problem...just one pet at a time and since you promised her the fish, then fish it is :)

Hi Marites,
Yes, a promise is a promise. So I plan to make her clean Julian's tank from now on so she will know how hard it is and maybe forget about her 2nd pet.

Hi Alison,
I don't like pets either. I already had my hands full from the 2 kids.

Hi Junnie,
She's asking for a dog this time... hehehe...

To everybody: thanks for stopping by.

Naku, mahirap alagaan ang gold fish at very expensive dahil sa maintenance so that they can live longer din.

Promise is a promise he-he.

JO said...

HI Raquel,
So far she hasn't ask for one again... I'm just trying to bribe her to accept cash instead of a new pet. hehehe

What a coincidence, Yohan is also asking for a gold fish. :)
