One year old and still not a word from me (except the "Hoi" that I learned to say in October). Since the day I came to live with the family, they call me by name several times a day: "Dandy! DANDY! Hello, Dandy!!!" Do you think I have even TRIED to say my name? No sirree, not me!
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
