Toddler Gives His Pet Fish A Funeral, And It’s The Saddest And Cutest Thing You’ll See Today!
Our first pets hold a special place in our hearts, but if your first pet was a fish, you may have had to say goodbye much too soon. My first pet goldfish (cleverly named “Goldy”) died within a month of living in my house. We were leaving for church and it was my little sister’s turn to feed him. Well, mom wasn’t looking and sister decided to give Goldy “extra food” in case he was really hungry! Well…Goldy couldn’t control himself and was dead by the time we came home…his funeral was very sad, but I don’t remember crying. Maybe I was too old by that point, but I still remember seeing the fish bowl being emptied out into the back yard as we all watched on.
This mom decided to film the tragic event for her son to remember later. I hope that in 20 or 30 years he’ll be able to look back on this and remember the good times with Tom the goldfish, but I hope mom gave him some ice cream after this sad but adorable funeral! And hopefully she taught him that licking dead fish is not okay, but there will be time for that later, I’m sure.
Did you agree with mom’s choice to film and post her son’s first funeral? Did you think his reaction was adorable, or did it remind you too much of flushing your own pet goldfish? Like and share this video with your friends to discuss!
