      Pickles update....

      I couldn't wait to see what color Pickles would turn in the winter...Chewy my other chag is chocolate in the summer with white tipped fins and kind of gold in winter....Pickles is green in the summer and a tan color in winter....Here are some in Nov when I measured her and some pictures taken over the past weekend of her and the group.....Zipper my Susui is 27" so you see Pickles has grown ....just not as much as some others! I'm kinda glad cause I'm still going to have to get rid of five fish this summer!

      The one with Pumpkin has Chewy and Pickles.....so you can see the contrast of their winter colors....I'll take one in the summer and you won't believe the change...its pretty cool...

      I love the pic w/Pumpkin. You would think they would shy from the pup.

      Nah..they think the dog may have food for them. My fish do the same thing, even with the neighbor's cat.

      LOL...everyone can't believe I did that....but I do love that fish....both my Chags are so easy going and sooo friendly they just love following you around...I caught Pumpkin actually trying to pick up Pickles....I chewed her out pretty good about it ... Pickles didn't even realize what she was doing she was so interested in seeing what I had in my hand! I don't mind her licking them but no biting! I don't know what she was thinking cause she barely has any teeth anymore....lol

      let's get a santa hat for Mrs claus and get another picture with pickles....

      we could entitle it " I saw pickles kissing Mrs Claus " would make a great personal Christmas card. The idea would probably be "bread and butter" for the Post office since everyone would want one. Most people would "relish" receiving one of pickles. Maybe Cindy would embroider a shirt with a pickle on it and we could photo shop it over pickles with the inscription "polska Wyrob"
      on it. All of the pickle processors would be clamouring for the likeness on their
      "garlic Dills"..... Come to think of it maybe daiinichi foods would like it on their koi food bag with the motto "pickle's pucker Power" when you care enough to give the very best ( sorry hallmark! ) It's kinda magical what state of mind a chagoi puts you in
