Today, another nice spring day, sunny and warm. Jan remembered how I enjoyed my shower last Friday and was convinced the same would happen today. Not so, however. He got the spray bottle and I jumped on his shoulder and stayed there. When Sophia tried to get me off, I attached my claws firmly to his shirt and roared with laughter. After ten minutes, Jan and Sophia were wet to the bones while I hadn't even felt a drop of water yet. I heard them moan and groan, but don't think I gave in! In the end they gave up, but somehow I don't think I have heard the last of it.
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!
