Ernie Fish, We Hardly Knew Ye

Saturday night we received some sad news.  Noah's fish of 10 months had died.  Noah's mom and I were at a bachelorette party for a friend when Noah called to tell us.  He was so cute about explaining the situation.  He even had to tell me himself after he told Laurie.  I felt so bad for little Noah.  He loved Ernie from day one and was a devoted owner.  He fed Ernie every night before bed, and knew that he loved to have the light on.  Nik and I have been invited to accompany Noah tonight to see if we can find a suitable replacement for Ernie Fish.  

The picture above is from Noah's birthday last April where Nik and I gave Ernie to Noah.  We didn't name him though, that was all Noah.  I etched the name on the bottom of the bowel, but unfortunatly the bowl is no longer with us either.  Oh well.  

I am honored that Noah would want us to come with him when he finds a new friend.  We love you Noah!

I'm so sorry to hear about Ernie! I know how hard it is to loose a fish friend.

Poor little Noah! Some people don't realize how you can get so attached to fish! We have a pond with 12 goldfish that we've "raised" for 3 years! Over the years, a handful of fish have died, and it breaks my heart! Fish are cute little things!

I can't wait to hear about Noah's new fishy!

That was the perfect gift for Noah. I love that he is so thoughtful to include you in finding him a new fish friend
