The goldfishes name is goldfish.

My darling friend Hailey got the idea planted in my head awhile ago "fish" Ahh yes. Andy has also fallen in love with Elmo ( his goldfish toooo!!) and has been begging to go to the Pet Store to look at fish ( Thanks Gramma.)

I stupidly mentioned getting a fish one day & lo & behold. Today was apparently that day.

" A RED goldfish" Okeydokey Andy..

Of course, I just got a Betta Fish, no tanks, filters, etc for me. Not in THIS house. I had a salt water tank one I adored but this house is FAR to tiny for that.

So this is what Andy has to say about his new pal;

"He is so cute."
"He is tiny, he is big ( I got one with the ..flappy...fin.. things...), his eyes are tiny."
"Goldfish, I LOVE you!"
"Your my buddy."
"I love him!"
"He's peeking at me!!!!"

And in the next 5 minutes I'll likely have about 10 more Andy quotes.

His name is Goldfish, OF COURSE. Although occasionally its Dorothy. (Thanks Elmo!) No, he isnt a Betta Fish, he is a GOLDFISH.

I asked the lady how long they live, she told me 2-3 years. I,for one am thrilled.



  1. that's awesome! remember when your fish had babies?

  2. I remember when I was little I really wanted fish so for one of my birthdays my parents bought a tank and I got to pick out a bunch of fish. They were freshwater fish and were told they would only live for 2 to 3 years. Granted we had a filter but those damn fish lived for over SEVEN years so beware!!!

  3. We have had a few betta fish at this house named Dorothy. Thanks to Caitlin loved for Elmo when she was about 18months. The first one lived 2yrs, the next one almost a year.

  4. Just don't flea bomb your house and leave the fish in his bowl on the kitchen table :X
    It severely shortens their lifespan

  5. We have a goldfish named dorothy!!!!!

  6. Aww it looks almost identical to our betta!!
    Ours is Betta 3. THe first one I flushed because Brian bought a girl and it was ugly. The second one committed suicide! And this one has gone 2 weeks without being fed before and is still kicking! they're pretty resiliant fish! LOL!!


Leave me something nice & pretty & full of compliments.
It makes me feel good about myself.
