Hey Bubbles, I never actually met you or anything, but I understand that you must have meant a lot to Rikus for him to write this news post for you. You were, judging by your photo, a very attractive goldfish, and you were so thoughtless to greet Rikus as he came home from work by lying on your side, floating on the surface of your bowl. Still, whats done is done...and Rikus, was there REALLY any need for this post? :S

That's sad. :'( I had fish once, it died after 2 months and we had to flush in down the toilet! :(

Sad sad sad. The world is sad. My dog "Eiko" died about a year ago. That was sad too. We bought a new dog, and I think you should buy a new fish. :'(

I had a turtle but it ran away(and probably died like a day after.) ='( it was really sad, but then i got a new turtle=).
Posted by ChrisB 22nd July, 2003

I had a couple of fish. I killed them (accidentally) with an aromatherapy kit. If it's any consolation, the way that your Bubbles died was peaceful and dignified, even though she didn't leave the world smelling like blossom and ylang-ylang.

I mock your grief with gusto.

"may his fish soul eternally preside in.... fish heaven" Preside? Why should this latecomer get to rule over fish heaven?
Posted by The Chris Street 22nd July, 2003

I am sorry to anyone who has lost a parent though. But as for Bubbles...well, rest in peices. Lets hope Goldfish Heaven isn't visited by a pussy cat or anything.

Good luck, Bubbles- if you see my old murderous psycho-fish, Apache, make sure that you're on his good side! He was a nasty one. Condolences to Rikus, as well. There will never be another Bubbles.

When I was little someone broke my ninja turtle action figures. I know what you must be going through.
Posted by Rikus 22nd July, 2003

My frog just died. And my dog died like a year ago. Sorry about the gold fish. But...Maybe if you use the same fish take the new fish will take on after your old one. Either that or be haunted by its ghost. lets hope not................................................ that would be so cool.

"I had a turtle but it ran away" How the fuck did a turtle manage to run away without you catching 3 days later half way up the road??

I had a hamster that died in November. I decided not to prod him, though, since I could see that he was pretty dead anyway. Ahh, he looked so peaceful... and... hamster-like... *sniff* (Yes I know I did not say this previously, but I didn't want to add to the grief(!) of pets dying. Oh well.)

My goldfish were alive for 4-1/2 years, (they both died on the same day). Then they flushed em before I woke up. I never got to say goodbye.
Posted by Joshtek 22nd July, 2003

pssst... get another fish ;)
Posted by Teh Keelor 22nd July, 2003

Sorry to hear about bubbles. Im an avid aquarist, but Im not too fond of goldfish (They cant be kept with too many other they pee and crap constantly.). Why dont you get a fishtank with several, more colorfull fishies? Dey pownz.

Well To Bad For You Guys But I Had A Bad Loss. Our family had 2 birds they did it and had 7 eggs every year. So we had like 3 birds every year (Some eggs didnt make it) But we had to give away the birds to my cousins. After a while we heard that our cousins lost the birds (Flew away) It was my job to train the birds. Luckly One the birds got to be mine luckly he is still alive. Hes the greatest bird in the world(Cockatail - Thats the Kind) But then the 2 main birds we had to give away so they were sent some where, where they can do some stuff and have more eggs. But we lost alota birds. But atleast mine is still alive. Oh well theres a time for everything.

Posted by DeadmanDines 23rd July, 2003

I once found a baby Blue Jay, (it had fallen out of it's nest and couldn't get back in) so we took it into our home. After about 2 weeks it died. :'( (I acidentaly squished it.:'(

My dog, Pogo, ate a poisonous fox bait recently and died a slow, painful death. I wasn't even there to do anything about it, and the worst thing is that my poor little sister had to watch him convulse and yelp in the world of pain that he was doomed to never escape. I feel your pain, brother! Rest in peace, Bubbles!
Posted by vortex2 24th July, 2003

Poor pogo. My first dog died becuase our nebors got tired of his barking and threw a rag full of bleach in his drinking water :(. They only had to spend alittle while in jail for "destruction of property". I tried to get them charged with murder 1 , but they didnt get it :(. We have a new better dog now (and a new house away from insane white trash nebors) His name is shadow :) and he is a mut, but he is my favorite non denomonational dog.
