Fishkeeper Honors Beloved Pet with Viking Funeral
It isn't often that a story, such as this one, finds its way into your heart and provides several moments of laughter, especially when it is about the loss of a loved one. “Peeping Tom”, the beloved Zebra Danio, spent most of his life in a bowl located in the bathroom of his owner. Day in and day out, Tom would share several private moments with his human cohabitants. His caretaker admits, Tom loved the [boobies], aptly earning him his name. This is Toms story, as told by his owner, Chilly911.
My beloved fish I had for 6 1/2 years, Peeping Tom. Aptly named because he lived in my bathroom. Livin' his life watching people poop and shower. One day his bowl was moved out of the sunlight by my father despite specific instructions to keep his bowl in light. And I came home from work the next day to find my wonderful aquatic companion dead. So, since he was such a valiant creature I decided he deserved a Viking funeral. Here it is…
To atone for his actions my Dad built Tom a sturdy vessel. It in no way makes up for what he did, but it was a pretty bad ass boat.
Complete with sail and ornament.
The boat was named SS Boobies because Tom loved [breasts], one of the reasons he lived so long, just to watch people shower.
The day has come for his send off, my sister has a decent drainage ditch outside her place so We did it there. His platform was built entirely out of matches. Another reason my dad crafted the boat… He's a bit of a pyro so he was having a great time with all this.
All covered up and ready for fire.
Rest in Paradise sweet Tom. You will be missed by many.
