Camera Critters

Well, I'd like to introduce you to my birdies this week. This picture was taken last Chrismas but not much has changed with them.

On the top right you have Speckles. He is the oldest and he is a pied cockatiel. DH got him at least 6 years ago. (from an ex girlfriend who's birds had babies) He raised Speck from a hatchling & has been handling him since he was days old. He loves to have his neck pet.

On the bottom, is my baby, Freckles. He is about 2 years and 7 months old. He is a love bug and always has been. My mom has one of his clutchmates & her name is Jewels. She is a beautiful pearl. Freckles is technically a pearl, but the males turn grey.

On the top left is our Meanie Head. His name is Scribbles. We got him from a bad breeder before we knew too much about finding a good breeder. He is mean and doesn't like much attention. He has bitten and drawn blood since we got him. He doesn't do that anymore, but we mostly don't take any chances either. He is about 3 1/2 years old. He's a grey.

I also have 4 fish, but the tank needs cleaned, so I won't take a picture today.

Blondie our old dog is in having her teeth cleaned. We've made the tough decision that if we can't get her quality of life to improve before the current bag of dog food runs out, we're going to have her put down. We're going to spend a lot of time on her though, over the next month or so, to help her out.
