As you may know, we discovered last year that we are just NOT dog people. And Charlie is allergic to cats. So the closest thing I figured Avery could have to a 'pet' would be goldfish. She loved picking them out and named them all by herself: Cinderella and Snow White! Perfect!
As they got bigger, Snow White was being very aggressive towards Cinderella. One night I stood over the fish bowl with Avery to try to make Snow White behave. I think it was stressing both of us out. I decided Snow White needed to go into time out. Charlie said I was crazy. While I was looking for another bowl for Snow White, I heard a flush. Charlie had taken care of our little problem! We are PETA's worst nightmare!
