RIP Arnolkardis and Mr. Krabs

So I need to change the header of this blog.  We no longer have pets.  We came home from our trip to find my favorite pet ever, Arnolkardis and his friend, Mr. Krabs dead.  An interesting fact about hermit crabs is that they leave their shell when they die.  We are speculating that is so other hermit crabs can inhabit their old shell.  

In retrospect, I probably should have asked the neighbor boy to watch and feed them instead of my uber busy sister.  Not to place blame or anything, but you did kill my all time favorite pet...  ;)

I have told my boys, "No more little bitty pets!" It is too easy to forget about them or to go hours before you notice the hamster has jumped ship. At least dogs "tell" you when they are hungry or need something.

Who in their right mind KNOWS how to take care of a Hermit crab. You may remember I am used to big animals...the ones you can ride...

Sorry for arnoldkardis though, not really sure what happened.
