RIP Dorothy | Personal

We've had goldfish come and go in our house but Dorothy was special because she's been with us ever since we moved in over 5 years ago. We actually don't know if Dorothy was a "she" but Nat calls her that because of Elmo's own pet named fish Dorothy. Our pet fish has outlived countless other fish and survived negligent water changes and various week-long vacations away from home. When guests come over the first thing they say is "whoa, that's a ginormous goldfish!". Yes, she was probably too big for the tank but we thought she was too domesticated for the pond outside and we weren't ready to get a larger tank for a 12 cent goldfish. We'll save that for our next house. Nonetheless, Dorothy will be missed.

Nat watched me bury our fish in the yard and asked "why is Dorothy sleeping in the yard?"
