Who's the Boss

I have observed this before, but it is amazing how I behave differently with all my family members. For instance, when Jan puts me back in my cage, I jump on his arm again and cunningly find my way out of the cage and on his shoulder. When he tries to get me on his hand again to put me back. Haha! I know this very spot, just between the shoulder blades, where he can never reach me. With Sophia it is entirely different. When she puts me back in my cage, I wouldn't even dream of protesting. She doesn't even have to close the door in a hurry. Jan is as jealous as you can be, but Sophia keeps laughing and keeps a secret how she does it!

His New Life

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!

Changes

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!

Aaaatcheeeee!!!

I have caught a terrible cold. All day long, I am sneezing and coughing. Haaaaa-CHEEEEEEE! Cough! Rattle! Don't you feel pity for me? Well, don't worry, I'll tell you a secret. I haven't really caught a cold, but it is just a sound I can't resist. This is Hilke's way of sneezing... and I just copied it! Do you hear me calling her name?
