Update: so Graeme decided to actually go celebrate with Buddy...went and took him his very first cupcake...he's the best :)
Below is Graeme and my first pet, a pet squid we named Buddy and today is his first birthday!
We ended up "finding" Buddy because when I was down in New Zealand last year I wanted to go view this colossal squid that was on display because it had been caught on my birthday while living there and I had found the whole story behind it so fascinating. So Graeme so kindly put up with me and went along for the adventure!
I don't really like squids, but seeing this one and learning a bit more about them was truly a fun and enlightening experince.
Anyways, all of that to say Happy Birthday Buddy! You have been a great pet squid!
