Piglet, the Pet of the Day
Name: Piglet
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Fantail Goldfish
Home: Ontario, Canada
   Piglet chose me about eight weeks ago when I visited him at the pet store. Of all the fish in his tank he was the most lively and active, showing off as best as he could. How could I resist him? He is currently about 4 1/2 inches long and should grow to be about eight inches long with a body the size and shape of a grapefruit.

    Piglet was named because of how he loves to eat. His staple food is goldfish flakes but his favorite is peas. He likes them so much that he comes up to the top of the tank and takes them out of my hand. His other favorite treats are zucchini and brine shrimp. Whenever anybody is near the tank he follows them around. I think he really likes us; or maybe he's just hoping more food will drop into the tank.

    Since we've got him Piglet has been a constant source of fascination for my 1 1/2 year old daughter Myriam and my Newfoundland dog Winston. You can see pictures of Piglet, Winston and Myriam at my home page.
