Just now I had a big fright! I explored the room as usual and wanted to play with a pen on the floor. When I got closer, suddenly there were two pens... but what was more, suddenly there was another bird in the room! All my feathers suddenly stood on end as I put them all up to show who is boss around here... and at exactly that very moment so did that bird! I stared it in the eyes and loudly growled like a dog, but it didn't dare to growl back. The family laughed and laughed, but I don't think there was anything funny, was there? Quite upset I walked away, but fortunately, when I looked back, the strange bird didn't follow me. It was all very, very peculiar.
A lot has changed in my life... I got married and moved to Canada. Of course I am very happy with my new life, but I will miss visiting Dandy! However, I am glad to know that he is VERY happy... he has a large aviary to play in and certainly doesn't miss his old life. We got a lot of flack from some people, who thought we abandoned Dandy, didn't love him, didn't even try... all I can say is that we always did the best we could, and that we always had Dandy's very best interest at heart. We thought it would be very selfish of us to keep Dandy in an environment where he was very unhappy, just to satisfy our needs. Perhaps we could have done some things differently, we did not have the knowledge I acquired later. Dandy, my sweets, I still miss you!
