Have you ever heard of Webkinz? If not webkinz is a virtual play area for stuffed animals. Well my sister got my daughter her very first webkinz for Valentine’s Day of 2008. After getting it all set up for her, the rest was history. My daughter has well over 30 of these darn things, and they are not too cheap either. The price is not to bad depending on where you go to get them. Some places jack their prices up while other places are reasonable.

Meet the only pet’s we can seem to keep alive.

Spotty is her baby, she sleeps with that dog every night. Toughy I think is the dad to spotty, I do not recall. Anyways every time she gets a pet it dies. Not our fault, but yea. We have had chickens and ducks, but the raccoons, got hungry and ate them. No more outside animals. We tried gold fish, well for some reason those damn things died.

We do have Tuna the cat, that someone decided they did not want so they dropped him off, he is an over all good cat, but she was wanting something different. So, as we was at Wal-Mart we decided to go look at the fish. We have the setup already I mean what can a few dollars hurt? HA. She wanted the tropical kind. So I needed to get a heater, and some chemicals to make the tap water safe. Needed some food for them too. Total about 30 bucks. Ouch not planning on that much but anyways.

Meet one of her new pets… We will call him Mr. Crabs.

Cute little thing huh? We are trying to figure out if those pinchers hurt. I can not get my husband to be brave to pick him up. He lives in the fish tank with 2 Mollies. The one Mollie looks like it might have babies soon. I do not think Mr. Crabs likes it in there though. He has already tried to climb out of the tank, so now I have duct tape on the openings in the back. Smart little thing if you ask me.
