Dandy's Book

After creating a blog book about our first six years together in Canada, I also decided to convert Dandy's Diary to a book. Reading back, most memories were so happy, some were so painful. Trying to see the world through Dandy's eyes, I have always tried to portray an honest view of his life, the ups, downs and final difficult decision we had to make in the end.

Looking back (and looking in from the outside) it is easy to see what we should have done, where we went wrong, etc... truth is such things are never easy. I have learned so much from Dandy, one thing I am convinced about is that unlike for example cats, dogs or horses, parrots do not belong in and around the house - they belong in the wild among their own kind.

Anyway, here it is, his life in book form. Dandy, we will always love you... and I still miss you even after all these years. If you wish to get a copy, contact me and I'll see what we can do.

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!

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?

The Big Oh Three

This is a special moment. Earlier this year, Sophia has reached the Big Three Oh. Today, I have reached the Big Oh Three! I am growing up fast and will soon reach full maturity. Later this month, I will contemplate about my life so far but now I will go to sleep. Good night!
