I have a little good new, a little bad news, and some down right ugliness.
The good news….we have a new baby shark. Meet little Taquito. He was born last week and is already eating and doing just swimingly.
The bad news….he doesn’t have a big brother. Which leads to the ugly….my ugly cry.
Apparently, while I was in Atlanta for Haven, Fajita had an accident. Tim said he walked downstairs and found him lying on the bottom, with a gash on his head. This makes me so sad, because I know Tim tried everything to bring him back. For goodness sake, that shark has been eating out of his hand for almost a year. I can’t even imagine the sadness he felt and I wish I would have been there for him.
He didn’t want to upset me while I was on vacation, so he kept it all inside. Then he didn’t want to tell me while we were looking at wedding venues because he knew how sad it would make me. So about a week after it all went down, I got the news. Ugly cry ensued. It may seem silly to you, but we hatched him from an egg. Watched him grow, and dreamed of building him a shark paradise. Instead he found a home in our backyard, with the prettiest flowers we have. Which are now growing beautifully.
Rest in peace little Fajita…we miss you bud.
