I have a cockatiel (Peeper) and a parakeet (Chirpy). Peeper is my little light...and sometimes my darkness!! LOL!! I've had him since 1996/97. There are days when I'd love to strangle him when he's getting on my last nerve, but I never do! He's got me twisted around his little wing and is soooooooooooooooo spoiled! tongue If you remember Barney Fife on the Andy Griffith Show, well, that's about like my Peeper! He thinks he's a mighty bird, fearless and tough! But in reality, he's a coward! He's scared of his own loose feathers floating past him. He hisses at anything he's unfamiliar with. He cracks me up often! He's one loved bird!
Chirpy is not tame. He was found by my neighbor outside about a year or so ago. He gave Chirpy to my friend and then he came to me in October. He's a narcissist. There's nothing more beautiful in this world as his own face, he is convinced. He must be because he constantly admires himself in the mirrors of his cage. He won't let me hold him. He's sure that I'm Lizzie Borden, Jack the Ripper, and Attila The Hun, all rolled into one!!! When I have to remove him from the cage to clean it, he'd love nothing more than to kick my butt! If I wasn't bigger than him, he probably could! He's funny because he'll only drink his water as he hangs upside down...he's not normal...but that's okay as I'm not either! smilewinkgrin
So that's my pets. I'd love to hear about yours! yeah

JL,

I have the one and only Am/Can/Int'l Champion Pine Crest Standing Ovation, CGC “Memphis” Memphis is a 3 year old black and tan Doberman with the sweetest disposition and is always with me. Here is a link to a picture of him.
http://www.riogran.com/dogs.html.

He sleeps next to my bed every night and this morning he chewed up and destroyed his own bed...............the little bugger so we had a "talk" I think he did it on purpose because he wants to sleep in my bed.

When we watch TV and he hears a dog bark he tries to attack the TV looking for the other dog. He really is very bright "most of the time "

He is truly my best freind and lets me hug him all the time.

Great thread.

Kindly,

Kitt

Oh, Kitt! He is a darling and so beautiful! He's as shiny as a new dime! I'm so glad you have him!
Pets are really wonderful. They love us for who we are and even for who we aren't! Of course, Chirpy don't love me...he doesn't like me either. I'm the big bully that has to manhandle him when it is cage cleaning time! hahaha!!!

I wish I could have a pet... :(
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Celey, why can't you have a pet? :(
My mom has let me know in no uncertain terms that if something happens to my birds, there'll be no more...she has only put up with the birds because they do not have fur. Furry animals shed hair and "stink"...my mom has an aversion to their smell and hairs. She loves animals, but can't deal with them. Of course, it ends up being MY loss....
