Shrek was having a hard time getting a picture of him...he's usually just a brown blur. He has been fun, but I have to worry about stepping on him and getting him to drink a bit of water is a pain in the rear.

Right now he is attempting to pull a throw off the back of the sofa that is 15 times heavier than him.



The only two cats he's been able to beat up this weekend.

I see a limitless supply of toys! Someone is indeed spoiled!

What a cutie!

He's been trying to get those cats all weekend, if he could actually tear them up I would put them away. He is very determined with chew bones. He fell asleep while I was posting the last pics

While i ate a bit, watched a show...that little magpie has been "finding" all kinds of things and taking them to "his" blanket. A slipper, ping pong ball, plastic soda cap and a catalog he snaked out from under the coffee table. And he has both cats "treed."

Oh, dearie me, how adorable can you get. I personally like to have pets I can handle ... when all else fails, I can pick'em up and throw them out the door. (For example, when my two JR terriers would get into a food fight), so I love small dogs. Just makes life simpler if I'm alpha gal. My doggie is now a Heinz 57, but has topped out at 20 lbs. I can still pick her up and toss her out the door (you do know I mean that gently) when she misbehaves.

I've had my Cockatoo, Spike(avatar) for about 24 years. When we moved to Florida I bought a large potted Ficus tree and put it near the window for sun next to Spike's cage. For 3 plus years the bird ignored the tree. One day I was working in the back yard and came in to take a break. My over 6 foot tree was reduced to an 8" or so stub with Spike sitting on top. He seemed to think I should be pleased at his accomplishment!

He's going back to his Mommy today, Shrek says I can't ever take care of him again...because next time she's not getting him back. He is a handful, but Patron has been fun.

Oh no, PF! I'd be going through withdrawals.

What a beautiful bird, JG! And obviously quite accomplished.
