As Good as Flipper

We got "Puppy" our Beta Fighting Fish about a year ago.
After watching this on Good Morning America yesterday,
I'm wondering if it's too late to send Puppy to school.

In all fairness, I have to give "Puppy" some credit.

When uneaten food sinks to the bottom of the fish bowl, it makes the water dirty faster. I began hand feeding him one pellet at a time since we got him. He only eats 4-5 pellets, so its fast. When I come to the bowl, he swims to me and waits for his food. I guess that should tell me he's trainable.

so you can teach an old fish new tricks?

Love it.

Our beta went to the great fishbowl in the sky a while back, I keep meaning to get the kids another one.

I wonder if I could teach one of those walking catfish to fetch the paper for me?

I used to feed some carp in a pond, and they got into the habit of following me around the pond. I used to joke about taking the carp for a walk. I suppose they were pretty well trained.
