Today, it was my turn to be nervous. Already, I noticed the days getting longer and the sun getting sunnier and today Jan decided is was time to take me outside again. Outside! Where the trees waver over your head, the wind attacks you from unpredictable angles and the birds are so noisy. What makes things worse, is that dreadful chain around your leg. However, I liked being outside. I wasn't half as nervous as my family expected. Soon, Jan and Sophia will try on my new harness.
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!
