For Lilian's 2nd birthday, we wanted to get her a fish... her OWN pet. She just loves watching fish, and she's very good about remembering to feed him (and Missy is even BETTER at remembering, in case Peanut forgets). At a science museum in Lancaster, PA on August 13, 2010, Missy and Brontis picked out a "Fish in Space" fish bowl. Spock was added to our family a few weeks later.

We moved in late October/early November 2010 and Spock stayed at my sister-in-law's house for a few weeks while we settled in. When we moved him here (a 45+ minute car ride) he wasn't looking so good. For a week, we almost thought we were going to lose him, he was lethargic and couldn't really stay upright. Missy did some research and took really good care of him, and within a week or two he was back to his normal, awesome self! Now Spock lives on an awesome vintage painted-red tiny dresser (that we found in the basement of our new house) and Missy and Lily take really good care of him. It's almost a year since we got him, so we thought it was only right to throw him a birthday party like we do for everyone else in our house (dogs included).
