Meet Puffer the Boxfish!

Puffer is a Boxfish that lives in a 95 gallon saltwater fish tank in my home. He is quite a character. Recently Tori Zigler invited Puffer and me for an interview on her fascinating blog about animals. Here is the link to Puffer’s interview. Hope you enjoy it!

Puffer – up close and personal

Puffer and I had a marvelous time on Tori’s fun blog. He got to tell her and her readers all about himself. He is quite a larger than life character and this interview has caused him to blow up even more with pride. I’m afraid he has gotten a bigger head! Now he wants to have his own book! Can you believe it? I don’t know about that but I may mull it over – wait I already did and the answer is no way, Puffer! Sorry! There would be no living with you if I did that! Ha!

What do you think? Should I write a story about Puffer? Would your children love it? Please let me know your thoughts here on my contact page or by email at jjspina(at)comcast(dot)net. I would love to hear from you.

I hope you will enjoy this post as much as Puffer and I did. It was fun giving him his own voice. He certainly has a large enough mouth to talk but only wants to eat, eat and eat again!

    I would love a story about him!! He can puff up when he is really scared & his friends can help ease his fears so he can unpuff! LOL

  2. Thanks for sharing Puffer’s interview with your readers.

    Artemis and I still think he should get his own story. But then, we don’t have to live with him when the fame makes him puff up even more than being interviewed already has. 😉
