"Sunny, my eight-year-old cockatiel likes to groom with his pals rubber duckie and porcelain swan. He could whistle the theme song of the 'Andy Griffith Show.'

"This is my love bird Kahealani. She'll be 1 year this month and I got her for a birthday gift last July 17th. I've taught her to talk, and she does a lot of it. She says about 8 sentences, she loves to play, and she is very sweet and affectionate. She adores the camera and she's my top model."

One word. "Birdweiser."

Pearl loves empty aluminum cans. She is not at all interested in what's inside (beer or soda) and won't drink it, she just love to grab an empty can and bang it on whatever she can find. Apparently she loves the noise it makes--we don't !

Our families will eventually accept that we've married outside our faith.

Linda says, "This photo is of my African Grey parrot. His name is RedDog but he thinks his name is "baby," or "sweetie" or "cutie-pie." He loves to sing and is especially addicted to hard rock, although he also loves the Village People and "Macho Man" (but that is our little secret). He is almost 12 years old and I raised him right out of the egg (because I owned his parents at the time). When he wants attention he starts singing 'I love you' in a very operatic voice."

PS - Thanks, Linda, for the great caption! Less thinking for us after four days of turkey and football.

Says Bobby (via Dianne translating), "I moved in and love it. I go out and come in. I am a clean bird. They named me Bobby, because they were not sure if I was a girl or boy. But I'm a girl!" Dianne adds that Bobby is "one smart bird!"

As always, we love to see your captions too--add them to the "Comments" section below!

Patriotic pet!

Stormy informs us that although his "pet human" Christine had him for several years prior, a few days after September 11, 2001, she noticed that Stormy was naturally red, white, and blue. "...Mostly white, with a turquoise blue stripe around my body. Being albino, I also had red eyes. Hence, I asked her to add "The Patriot" to my name. I am very proud and honored to have the name, Stormy the Patriot!"
