My husband had always wanted a parrot, so we began searching for the right kind of parrot for our household, which includes 3 Boxers & 20 Koi fish.
We decided on an African Grey and found a local pet store that bred them. When we 1st saw Dookie, I knew he was the one I wanted, but we had to wait to choose which baby would be ours according to the list of people waiting. The best part was we did end up getting Dookie, our original choice & he is an awesome bird.

Hi! My name is Dookie

I am an African Grey from Syracuse, NY.

Dookie Doo
Dookie Boy
Duke which he calls himself

10 years old   M

African Grey

What isn't? Almonds, pistachios, sweet potatoes, mandarin oranges.

On top of my cage
On my perch in the back corner where I can observe & listen to everyone.
At my cage door
Upside down in his cage

When mom comes downstairs with a towel wrapped around her head. The towel scares me.
My husband trying to get him out of his cage.

That I am spoiled rotten. I live in a castle w/ all kinds of toys. I have 3 big playmates that come over & sniff my cage to see what kinds of goodies are in there. And to tease them, I call them by each by name.

Calling my mommy's name constantly, "Hey Lisa" in my daddy's voice. It drives mom crazy cuz she thinks it is daddy calling her!
I have lots of whistles, combine my whistles to make pretty songs. I've learned how to give kisses, I squeak like the bottom stair.
As soon as I get fresh water I run right over to my bowl & drink. I like to add my name when I'm talking, like "What's up Dookie", sometimes I like to shorten my name to "Duke".
When we're cleaning, usually vacuuming, he gives himself a bath.
We have a bell on the door for the dogs to ring to go out & everytime the bell rings, Dookie whistles & says "c'mon boy".
When it's time for him to come out of his cage, he scrambles up to the top.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Tuki says hi!
Dear Dookie,
I can't believe you have a boxer dog (or 3) also. My name sounds like yours, and I have a dog named Jonah. He too rings a bell on the front door to go outside, and when he does ring, I say to him "You want to go outside". When mom calls him to come in, I say come on girl, just like you! My first family had a girl dog, so I call Jonah a girl even though he is not! I still do not trust the cat. Hope you have a great day in New York. It is cold in Missouri but sunny.

Come visit me, Tuki.
