Here’s 5 fast facts about Chase!

I have two fish tanks. I feed the fish in the fish tank worms sometimes and even feed them with my hand. They even know when it’s time to eat.
One amazing food he’s gotta eat all the time is ________.
The one thing I like to eat once a week is more like a snack. It’s Trolli Sour Brite Eggs. I usually eat them when I leave track practice on Sunday.
