JERUSALEM: Cindy the dolphin, who grabbed headlines after British millionaire Sharon Tendler said 'I Do' to him last year, died on Sunday following illness and like all creatures of the deep was given a burial at sea.

"Cindy swam slowly and he had problems eating. Sometimes he didn't eat at all. He vomited and did not look good," Maya Zilber, manager at the Eilat reef's training center told 'Ynetnews'.

The dolphin's body was discovered this morning by reef workers floating in its favourite place, the entrance of the diving and swimming instructors, Zilber said.

Reef workers put Cindy's body in a boat and sailed into the sea where they parted from it.

The love affair had captured the world's amused attention last December because of its sheer novelty.

At a public ceremony, Tendler wore a white dress and placed flowers on her head to tie the knot with Cindy, who escorted by his fellow best-men dolphins swam over to his bride.

The Jewish millionaire hugged him, whispered sweet nothings in his ear and kissed him in front of a cheering crowd.

Tendler, a British rock concert producer, met the Dolphin 15 years ago and developed a liking resulting in two to three annual visits every year to spend some time with her underwater love.

"The peace and tranquility underwater, and his love, would calm me down," the excited bride had said after the wedding ceremony.

Well, ya see, it started with my father, who was a bottle-nosed dolphin , and my mother who was an eccentric Israeli-
So that makes me an eccentric Israeli with a blowhole on the top of my bottle shaped head.

It makes going to the mikvah a completely different experience, really.

I'm making a kiddush in shul this week to thank God for saving me.
You see, I was swimming around minding my own business (which is difficult considering I am a very eccentric Israeli) when I got caught in a net with a school of Albacore Tuna (I only swim with the Albacores, not the cheap "chunk light" tuna) and was almost processed into "Chicken of the Sea"- Oy! Talk about kissing a star, I almost did!
Anyway, an astute Mashgiach from the Star-K, who happened to be looking up from his monthly issue of "Child-Molestors We Must Protect" magazine saw me and realized that I was not a tuna and saved me from being in tomorrow's lunch or on the table at Seudah Shlisheet this Shabbos. So, here I am.
I hope that satisfies your curiousity. Wanna watch me do a somersault? You got a herring in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
