ALECTO’S SIGN: I flare at Mommy when she tries to move the mermaid. It is MINE.
IROH’S SIGN: I hoard food in my bubble nest and then don’t eat it. (I eat my plant instead.)
Alecto is two and a half years old, and Iroh is about six months old. Alecto’s brother, Bluebell (recently deceased), was incredibly possessive when it came to a pink-and-black tape measure I’d keep sitting up next to his tank; much like Alecto won’t let me move the mermaid, Bluebell used to get upset when I’d take the tape measure to use it. Some bettas are greedy little water dragons and love their hoards, even if it means their tanks get messy very fast (Iroh, I’m looking at you).
Came home to see two very guilty faces. Walked in the kitchen to see garbage all over the floor. Our pitbull mix, Nina and her English bulldog accomplice, Charger, knocked down the garbage and ate whatever they could find in the garbage. Not the first time…
“I love to pee on my three sisters.”
We have four lovable dachshunds and, during our afternoon walks and even just during playtime in the yard at home, Lewt never fails to show his affection for his sisters be lifting his little leg and peeing on them.
