A few weeks later Ron came home to us. Drew loved Ron and we all enjoyed watching him. Ron had tricks. He would hide IN the filter and shoot out at me when I looked for him. I told the boys that I was nervous he would get out from the hole by the filter. Stephen assured me Ron would never do that. I worried though because I could sense that Ron had a gypsy heart.
Last night Stephen and Drew were feeding the fish and noticed Ron was gone. We looked in his usual spots... the filter, the rocks, and in the gravel. Ron was gone. Then we noticed a wet puddle on the table by the aquarium. Right then Ellie, our dog, came up and her ears were wet. After we CSIed the crime scene we deduced that Ron had in fact freed himself of the aquarium and Ellie had found him in distress. Then she ate him. Ellie ate Ron!
We are still mourning the loss of our Ron. He was a good Rope Fish. He just didn't respect the boundaries that were there for his protection. And he got eaten. I think we can all learn from Ron's legacy.
