Jan and Sophia took me outside again. I really liked it this time. Jan tried to put on my new harness, but when I panicked, he stopped trying to put it on. Ah well, the chain around my leg isn't as bad as I always thought. I know now I can't fly with it and that's about all the limitation it gives. Somehow however, I am afraid I haven't seen the last of this harness either. My family can be so persistent at times!
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!
