We have known for awhile that Hadley would love to have a pet. She would be in heaven if we got her a cat, but we aren't allowed to have them at our house. On a whim yesterday we decided to get Hadley a fish. We actually got her 3 goldfish and a little tank/carrier thing.
She was so excited about her pets and we named them Jake, Izzie and Captain Hook.
We woke up the next morning and they were dead. They didn't even last 24 hours. It might have been because we didn't actually buy a tank with a filter, but we thought goldfish would be fine without one. I don't now. We had a lot of fish when Hadley was a baby and we didn't have good luck with them either. Obviously fish just isn't our thing.
They don't look dead, huh?
So, Adam took a trip to town and came back with 2 hamsters! I had no idea! We have named them Gaspard and Lisa and Hadley is in love! They are so much more fun than fish. Much more entertaining and Hadley can actually pet them. I really hope that these little guys hang around for awhile because I will really devastated for Hadley if they die. She didn't care about the fish dying. Ha!
