I was adopted several years ago this spring from a really nice lady who didn't think she was taking good enough care of me (I was happy there, but I'm really happy here with my brother and sisters). My mom says that I was her first painted pet but now that everyone is painted, I look like I need a little facelift. She's been trying to find a suitable pet to match my name and finally settled on a white-ish koi. How cool is that? Then, she said, she's going to write a story about all of us. Look at us - it should be some story!
My brother and I went sailing today and I fell overboard. How stupid is that? I'm the fish, and I fell overboard and Magnum had to jump in and save me. When we came out, his hat shrunk - it looks really funny on his head now (but don't tell him I told you that) and I changed from a grown-up koi to a baby koi (on my way down, Boochi paid me a visit, and Magnum couldn't save me. He tried, though, he really did). I had him take this picture of me when we got to the bottom - at least his ship was still at the top of the ocean! I love my brother. He's so much fun! ;)
