I'm not sure the ethics behind street fair pets, but the deaths of Lucy and Desi, my aquatic frogs, have haunted me for years.
I was 10 years old when I won my two beautiful babies at a St. Vincent De Paul street fair. I loved those frogs. They were my pride and joy. But alas, no one told me how to take care of them, and my parents were just as happy to let them die as a result of my carelessness. Die they did, and that day I learned a very important life lesson. That is, that which is taken for granted will be taken from you. I haven't owned another frog since.
