In Memory of Jimmy Dugan

Yesterday was a sad day at our house. Our fish, a betta named Jimmy Dugan, went to the Rainbow Bridge. He was the first pet Mom got when she moved here, so he lived over a year and a half. I guess that's a pretty good life for a fish.

I thought he was very fascinating when I first moved in. I could see him in his tank way up on the counter. I would sit on the floor and look up at him, watching him swim around, up and down. He was a pretty blue color (I can't believe Mom didn't have any pictures of him!) and had elegant, flowing fins. It was great entertainment for a kitty! Sometimes, when Mom was gone, I would get up on the counter next to him so I could have a better view.

Jimmy didn't have much to say, but he would swim up to greet Mom when she approached his tank. It was like he was saying, "Hi there! How's it going?" Now it's just an empty tank on the counter. I hope we get a new fish to watch, but I'll always remember Jimmy Dugan, my brofin.


  1. Wow! You had fish tv in your house. Er, if you haven't flushed the remains yet, could I, er, have them.

  2. Sorry, they've been flushed already. Mom let me sniff him first, but I didn't taste him or anything.

  3. I am sorry Jimmy Dugin had to go to the Bridge (or do fish go to the stream under the Bridge)? It was good of you not to taste him.

  4. Awww, so sorry to hear about your special friend Dugin. Fishies are so much fun to watch swimming around and around.

  5. Daisy, I think you're right. The fishies probably do go to the stream under the Bridge!
