Is it a distant genetic link with the Nippon or am I the owner of Kamikazi Koi carp? On the sick at home so I thought as the weather is mild I would start the pond pump and feed the fish. An hour later & I take a look and about 5 foot from the pond is one of my fish in the middle of the lawn doing the dying fish routine. I guess fish food must really be boring! I put the dumb fish cum amphibian in the pond and one of my springer bitches shows me how clever she is at fish retrieving. I am cursed/blessed with loony pets!
