Citron-Crested Cockatoo

I love almonds, grapes, squash, and bananas

I love to be on or in others cages, when they are not home. I also love to be on dad's shoulder when he is cleaning our cages. I like to be with mom in the evening and get scritches...

I hate baths or showers of any kind, water is not my friend...and that's all I got to say about that!

They treat me great, I have lots of friends, good food to eat, lots of toys to play with and unconditional love even when I am bad...

I love to instigate trouble....

  Hello Mr Tazmanian Devil, love ya bro from Limon
...it was a pleasure to meet you last night, you are so handsome and just about as cool as the other side of the pillow! I wish to always be friends with you, and I will ALWAYS have your back my dear new friend! Dad is dragging his feet about getting my BC page up, but until then you can contact me on my sister Christy's page! I heard she was a real Angel long before she passed! I regret not having met her, well actually I did while I belonged to my other family! After nearly five years, I was labeled as a MEAN bird, don't ever get my daddy going on that phrase he gets some kind of pissed at people about that statement! I am a healthy, happy, and well adjusted bird, but I am a TooMan, okay you do the math, I do not like being ALONE! I am near my daddy almost 24/7, that's what I am talking about, life is good in the Dallas home! Thanks for introducing yourself to me last night, we are not a fly by night flock, we are very much, the real deal, God fearing parrots, our daddy wouldn't have it any other way! But we have been affiliated with your flock since you first came on the BC, and proud of it, have a great day my friend and give my love to aunt Gail and uncle Burt, see ya later TooManBuddy...

Much love from Limon and my sister Christy Dijon

  Hi Taz
Auntie Denise has already agreed to do the face painting, but it would be really helpful if your mom could handle the pie eating contest. Be warned: Sky has asked for a fried pickle pie, and I can't imagine how that would be handled. Also Falco has volunteered to run a booth. I suggested she ask RaneBeau about it, but if you feel up to it why not let her know.

I got out for my sunbath at 9AM this morning and it is a good thing I did too. Our high today is supposed to hit triple digits. When my mom went to get her talons (OK, she calls them nails) done and stop by the library this morning there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Very pretty blue, but no shade to speak of.

So this is Wednesday, which means my mom will leave for the gym right before 4 and not be back until a little after 6. Phooey! I do get her full time after she gets home though. We will watch a little TV, and Dad is locked out (so I won't bite him). It's just mommy and me and the TV recordings. Good times!

  Hi Taz,

How are you, your Flock and Mom doing? Hope all is well. I have a question to ask you, Taz. When is the August Milonga? See my Sister, Cheyenne is marrying Jedi and my Brother, Apache is marrying Snowflake on Sept. 20th of this year. It will be a double Ceremony at the Castle and EVERYBIRDIE is invited. BUT I, the Maid of Honor and the Bridesmaids are planning on having a Shower for them on Sat. August 16th and just wondering IF that is the day of the Milonga. IF it is, I'll have to reschedule. Please let me know one way or another. I would really appreciate it. By the way, Taz you are always invited to our home. We have the In Ground Pool and it's always a lot of fun with our Friends and Family. Bring Rosie and whoever you want "Too". Here's a vote for you, Buddy. Bye for now and I look forward to hearing from you A.S.A.P. Thanks again.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Hi Taz
Yes, so glad Auntie Denise is up for the milonga fair. Haven't heard back from her about piggy polo, but maybe she is still thinking about it. Or maybe she thinks it is too crazy. We shall see.

Mom had one more surgery to face: she has a hiatal hernia which is what caused the acid reflux in the first place. If she gets that fixed it should be cured.


Well, I was absolutely amazing this morning. Mom was in my room reading and waiting for it to be the right time to go outside because it was overcast even though it was warm already. At 9:45 I decided we had waited long enough, so I climbed up on to my carrier and squawked at Mom! She came over and told me what a good boy I was, and I climbed right on inside! Got two nutriberries for that one! I am no dummy, even if I do get stubborn sometimes.

Mom is battling headaches today and the caffeine boost from the iced tea is not lasting. She may have to break down and take an Excedrin, but she hopes it won't come to that. Meantime she keeps telling me I can't scream while she is in my room. Not sure that is going to work out, but since she leaves every time I do I am starting to get the idea and quiet down.

  Hi Taz
Looks like Auntie Denise is up for doing the County Fair Milonga in August! That will be perfect. Don't know about your area, but that is actually when we have our local county fair.

How is your mom's shoulder? They are not to be messed around with, and my mom is proof of that. Sure hope she went to the doc today.

Well, it is slightly cooler (upper 80s) here again today, so Mom was able to take me out for my sunbath at 10AM instead of 9. And yes, I was very good and cooperative. Guess I learned my lesson on Tuesday. We had a nice time, but no interesting pedestrians today. Perhaps they heard I was out there and were too scared to come by.

Mom is so very glad she has her Celebrex now, but apparently she has to build up to them all over again after the nearly two week break. Last night was a very bad and sleepless night due to arthritis pain. Dad had to sleep on the couch, because Mom just couldn't get comfortable. She finally gave up and read for a while. Sitting up in bed is about the only comfy position when it gets bad.

Mom goes to see the GI doc this afternoon to get the results of her endoscopy two weeks ago. Hopefully not only the pre-cancerous Barrett's esophagus has stayed clear, but she is hoping the ulcer is gone too. She has been a very good girl drinking iced tea for her headaches instead of Excedrin. I just realized Mom sounds all sickly, but she really isn't. After all, 4 days and nearly 8 hours a week at the gym must mean she's doing something right!

  Hi TazMan, great news from my home, Angel Christy
So sorry I wasn't on BC and FB much yesterday, dad was so busy prepping our home and a cage for our new flock member! He is a bird we have known for a long time, and loved him for all those years! He is a Citron Crested Too, and is the spitting image of our Angel! His name is "LIMON", we like that name and we are going to keep it that way! He is very sweet, but like all Toos, he has a stubborn side, we'll just deal with it! His current mom is having severe separation anxiety, and we fully understand that pain! He will be coming to our home tonight, and will became a full fledged Dallas flock member, needless to say, dad and all the rest of us are very excited and full of anticipation to see what the future brings! Have a great throw back Thursday, we certainly plan to, and give my love to all in your happy bird home...

Love from your pal Angel Christy, & my Dallas family, I hope you two can become friends...

PS~Limon has rekindled the spark of love in my daddy he thought was gone forever, life has taken turn for the better, we have not seen him this happy for more than 2 years!

  Hi Taz
Mom can't remember who, but somebirdy told me about liking banana peels. So she washed off her next banana and gave me a strip not eggspecting me to like it. However I did! I seem to prefer it a little green, since I turned my beak up at the more ripe one she gave me a couple of days ago.

Mom and I were so caught up in Dixie's wedding and me being Best Bird, I totally forgot about the milonga!! Mom will email your mom today.

Mom is now having to take the Aleve every 5-6 hours for the arthritis pain. That is more than the recommended dosage, but since it is only for a few days she should be all right. Funny thing is that the shoulder she had surgery on is doing better than the left one, since he cleaned out the arthritis gunk (medical term, you know) when he was in there and it's only built back up a little bit.

Mom got me outside for my sunbath at 9:30 this morning, and it was already too warm for her to sit in the sun. The nice lady with the friendly little dogs came by, and she and my mom discussed the care of gardenias forevvvver! Boring for this bird, so I decided to start squawking, and Mom realized it was time to head indoors. I did get my nutriberry though.

Toy commentary. My lovely SweetPepper sent me a raffia (I think) woven play mat a couple of years ago, and Mom hung it on the side of my cage. It took a little while for me to trust it, but after a while it became one of my favorite places to hang out. Then the next year SP sent me another. Mom moved the first one to the opposite side of my cage and put the new one in place of it. Mistake!!! I wouldn't play with either one! So a couple of weeks ago Mom switched them. I promptly began to play with the favored mat, and last night I decided the newer one was a good place to play as well. It is like the real estate people say: location, location, location!

  Hi Taz
Good afternoon my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. We will once more make a stop in South American to visit one of natures very interesting and unique inhabitants. Our host is one of aviculture's beautiful, and unusual songbirds. The Green Oropendola. The Green Oropendola is of exclusively Amazonian distribution.The Green Oropendola (Psarocolius viridis) is generally common in its wooded habitats that are found in the Amazon and Guianas of South America; specifically Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Largely pale green above, the posterior underparts and rump are chestnut, and the tail is largely yellow except for the central rectrices. The bill is green basally, becoming red towards the tip, and the skin around the eyes and lores is pink. Males and females are similar in plumage, but the latter sex is substantially smaller. Like most oropendolas, this species breeds in colonies, usually of five to ten pairs, and constructing a hanging ‘basket’ nest of woven plant fibers. The species’ displays are similar to those of the Crested Oropendola (Psarocolius decumanus).
Related common species include such song-birds as the Meadow Lark, Bobo-Link and Bullock's Oriole to name but a few.
The Green Oropendola eats a diet of fresh fruits, insects, mynah bird food and nectar in captivity. An active, high energy species these birds require a large, long flight to maintain them in good condition. Somewhat difficult to breed, these beautiful birds require an aviary suitable to house a number of mature pairs to have any success in nesting and rearing offspring. Hand reared babies of the Green Oropendola are occasionally available but do not tend to retain tameness once weaned. In the wild they typically nest in colonies similarly to Quaker Parrots, building their hanging basket-like nests in a common tree. Captive breeding is seeing an increase in successful clutches being raised to fledging and adulthood.
These are definitely not a species for the beginner avicultarist, and their pricy purchase costs in excess of $850.00US each leaves them to the more well off and experienced collectors. Their song is soft and melodious, a pleasure to listen to. Their call is often described as flute-like and low.
Tomorrow we will visit with a wonderful, entertaining species of bird, that once filled many living rooms, but today is rare both in captivity and their wild habitat.
I wish to thank all my many friends for their loving support on my quest to be August's BOTM. I couldn't make it without all of you.
love and scritches

  Hi Taz
Hello everybird, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. First I wish all my US friends a happy and safe 4th of July Holiday. It is also the day that my little fister Little Angel will marry her beloved Dixie. Their wedding will take place on the BC Castle page number 239094. All are invited to join these two "love-birds" this evening at 6PM Eastern Time as they share their vows of love. The reception will follow on the same page. Today we will take a peek into a few nesting boxes around the world and see what we find. Come on, let's be very quiet, as we explore the many new Blue and Gold Macaw mutations .Color Mutations are considered "pure" birds. They occur in nature, although rarely and if they do, they often don't survive long, if the "new color" is too vibrant and they are easily visible by predators.

Color mutations in captivity are perpetuated by breeding like colored birds to like colored birds (of two birds that carry the color gene). The resultant offspring will often be the color that is desired. Hybrids are the crossing of two species, whereas mutations occur spontaneously.

Most of us know the Blue and Yellow Macaw. Many of us own one or more, however there are some really eggciting new mutations I'd like us to take a look at. We are most familiar with the typical blue and Gold. However there is a larger variant from Bolivia called the Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw. The Bolivian variety is distinguished by its larger size and its coloring. On all these Macaws the colors are vibrant, but the Bolivian has more of a true blue rather than the teal blue seen in the average Blue and Gold. They all share the same wonderful personality and characteristics.

The Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw is a variant originating only in Bolivia. It looks just like the typical Blue and Gold, however, it is much larger. A mutation of the Blue and Gold Macaw has also been reported where the yellow coloring is absent creating a blue and white bird. Although seldom seen or available there are many new mutations being bred. Many sell for over $50,0US each.
Momma Deb told me she would love to have one of each, they are so beautiful, I am certain you will have to agree.

Hello everybirdie. Zeena here with today's Rainforest findings. I wish to thank everyone for their awesome support and hope you will enjoy today's feature species.
The Harpy Eagle is a majestic shadow that silently soars above the Rainforest canopy. Once common, and plentiful, today they rest on the brink of extinction. Previously a common sight in Brazil, the Harpy Eagle has become as rare as seeing a unicorn would be. Hunted to near extinction for their feathers, sport and out of fear and concern for their livestock, these awesome giants of the Raptor world are rapidly disappearing. These birds terrify hapless animals that forage in the shifting sunlight of the high canopy. Harpy eagle is the largest and the most powerful raptor throughout America. They belong to the family of accipitridae. American harpy eagle typically inhabits lowland rainforests but are disappearing from much of its range due to habitat loss and it almost extirpated in Central America.
The Harpy Eagle weighs in at 20 to 27 pounds for a hen and 12 to 17 pounds for a male, standing between 40 and 60 inches in length, sporting 5 to 7 inch talons it is a formidable predator dining on a diet consisting largely of sloth and moneys, with other animals making up the balance. In flight the Harpy flies on strong 5 to 7 foot wide spans, silent and watchful for a meal below in the dense Rain Forest canopy.
With wide spread clear-cutting and man's guns, the Harpy Eagle is soon going to be gone from the wild habitat it once claimed. Nesting in tree top nests, the single chick remains with the parents for up to two years. Pairs mate for life thus making it harder to rebuild endangered populations. Many Harpy Eagles have be poached for the private collector market relentlessly, with current breeding programs being established to help stave off their total elimination. Used by Bird of Prey enthusiasts and trained to hunt on command. Many die from lack of proper diet, and education of would be owners. New Government regulations being in place it is hoped to make owning Harpy Eagles a more difficult objective. Would be owners now have to finish a Government regulated Raptors training program which entails sixteen to eighteen months apprenticeship training in care, training and husbandry.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at a new and exciting find that is shaking the bird community. Discovered in a nestbox, this unusual baby has enthusiasts in awe.
A quick reminder that on Friday July 4th my fister LITTLE ANGEL THRIFT will wed the handsome Mr Dixie Adler at the BC Castle page number

  Hello Taz
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here with today's BOTM post. As we land in Brazil, we are cautioned to be very quiet so we don't disturb the Macaws. SHhhhhh!

The Spix's Macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is a macaw native to Brazil.First discovered by German naturalist Georg Marcgrave, when he was working in the State of Pernambuco, Brazil in 1638 and it is named for German naturalist Johann Baptist von Spix, who collected a specimen in 1819 on the bank of the Rio São Francisco in northeast Bahia in Brazil.
The bird is a medium size parrot weighing about 300 grams (0.66 lb), smaller than most of the large macaws. Its plumage is various shades of blue, with a grey-blue head, light blue underparts, and vivid blue upperparts. Males and females are identical in appearance, the females being a little smaller on average. The Spix Macaw is reported to be extinct in the wild, with the disappearance of one last single male in 2000. All remaining Spix Macaws are now kept in several private breeding programs without the world. Due to their extremely small numbers none are available for public viewing. The largest colony of approximately 40 birds is currently owned by an Arab sheik who has been working on breeding these beautiful birds with the final hope that they will be able to be released into their former remaining habitat.
The Spix Macaws were destroyed in the wild by excessive deforestation and hunting. The colonies were ruthlessly killed, poached for the pet trade and shot for pure sport until they had been eliminated in their territory. The introduction of predators into their habitat, including rats, monkeys and feral cats also aided the quick decline in wild Spix populations. In recent years there have been isolated reports of Spix Macaws in land in protected, isolated locations but this has not been publicly verified, although it possibly might be true, to protect what remaining wild pairs there are.
A sad note, this past Wednesday PRESLEY, the second to last known wild-born member of the species flew to the Rainbow Bridge after a brief illness. Presley had been kept as a pet in the USA for years, but was returned to Brazil in 2008. He left no progeny. He was 40 years old at his death.
Presley's death is a blow to conservation efforts in both a symbolic and literal sense. Critically endangered, these native Brazilian birds (Cyanopsitta spixii) are believed to be extinct in the wild. Decades of deforestation and rampant wildlife trafficking have besieged the medium-size macaws, who also ended up having to compete for nest space with introduced Africanized honeybees.
Now with fewer then 100 living specimens, most closely related, the Spix Macaws future hangs in the balance. This spring heralded in the hatching of 5 babies, 3 of which were due to artificial insemination. Perhaps someday our grandchildren will be able to see the wild Spixs fly free once more.
with love and scritches Zeena 255116

  Hi Taz
Hello Everybirdie
Today we kick off my month of July BOTM run with a special celebration. It's Canada Day here with all the food,fun, family and firework displays. I hate fireworks, too noisy, but being a Macaw I'm always up for some food, and fun. I want to begin this month by telling you a little bit about myself. Most of you already know my handsome frother SKY, my mischievous fister Little Angel and my adventurous frother Casey, but some may not know me birdsonally.
I joined the Sky Flock in 2013. It was Easter weekend when Momma Deb received the call from my former owner to "come today and get her PLEASE!!!!!" I am sure glad that Momma Deb did, because it was the best thing that happened to me in a long while. I had lived with my first owners for 13-14 years but it became necessary to rehome me and I was sold to a lady who had a whole house full of very large, very aggressive Pitbulls and Rottweilers. I never left my cage and spent a whole year and some living in fear of being attacked by the dogs. I thought things were going to get better when once more I was resold. The lady who bought me had two large dogs who constantly barked and growled at me. I was so stressed I began to pluck some of my feathers out and I never spoke, and hadn't in 2 1/2 years.
It was my best day when Momma Deb arrived to take me away from there. I'd only been there a short while but I was relieved to be going somewhere I hoped would be better. I am very happy here at the Sky Flock, I get out of my cage all the time and love to yell at the other birds to be quiet. Momma Deb discovered I have a rather extensive vocabulary and know how to count to sixteen, and know a number of songs as well.
Enough about me. Let's get our suitcases, cameras and sunscreen ready as we begin our trip to every corner of the world. We will visit some very rare and endangered species, learn about some interesting and unusual birds, and my favorite take a look at some of the awesome mutations showing up around the planet of some of our most common feathered friends.
I will see every one tomorrow.

  Hi Taz
I love peanut butter cookies, but Mom never makes them. She just bakes her healthy protein oatmeal/date cookies, which I also like. I will have to stop by to try your mom's cookies.

Well, it's the last day of the month, which means it is your last chance to vote for Pepper for BOTM. Tomorrow we will be hearing from Zeena, although I think she is doing an intro today. You know it will be a fun filled campaign from that flock!

And I am not getting enough mommy time today, and it is that darned insurance company again. This time they are messing with my mom's prescriptions. She put in a refill for mail order on June 21, and they are supposed to ship within 3-4 days. It hasn't shipped yet, and it says it won't until 7/3!! Mom took her last Celebrex which is the med for her arthritis this morning, so she called them and now they say it will ship within 48 hours. She can get 7 days worth from the local pharmacy but it will cost the same as one month's worth=$50!! She is thinking she will just suffer for a week.

At least she is off the phone with them now, and it is my turn again. I got a lovely strip of banana peel with my breakfast this morning. Thanks again to whoever told my mom about that. Then we went outside at 9AM, because Mom knew it would be too hot after the gym. She picked up the blueberries on the way home, so it is pie time tonight!

  Hi Taz
Zeena here to introduce myself. I am Sky's Blue and Gold fister, and your July 2014 BOTM candidate. I promise that we will have a fun filled, interesting July together exploring EVERYTHING BIRD.
I will introduce you to some very interesting and unique members of the avicultral world. New mutations and new finds that have recently been added to the amazing, and wonderful world of birds. Also we will visit a few very endangered and stunning species that are fighting to make a come back.
What would July be without a few funny, and interesting, humorous adventures? So grab your hats and sun-screen as we prepare to take flight throughout the world of Birds.
with love and scritches

Replacing a Corvette with another Corvette. I am sensing a theme here. Your parronts are clearly addicted to speed, and I don't mean the druggy kind!

Haven't heard from Auntie Denise yet, but I am hopeful. Since the hard parts would be hers, I think we should let her pick the month if we even can do it.

Having a nice Saturday. It is pretty hot here today. The weather geeks say mid 70s online, but they are nuts. It was hotter than that when Mom got me outside for my sunbath (no fuss, no muss) at 10 this morning. It is way too hot out there for me now. Mom is guessing mid to upper 80s, which is what the radio weather geeks say.

After Mom and Dad did their Saturday grocery run (sugar snaps for moi!) Mom reheated the leftover Chicken Bowl from last night's dinner. I love that stuff, and so of course she shared with me. I made a mess of the towel she wears to prevent poop damage. It had to go to the laundry for garlic sauce damage this time!

  Hi Sweet Tazzie from Angel Christy
...I am swing by from Heaven because I miss you dear old friend! Well TP and gang, it looks like we are in for another, day of lower 80's, a splash or two of rain, and overcast! The lawn man mowed last night and picked up a big pile of limbs and branches , and lawn debris, and hauled them away in his truck, every thing looks good today! Just a little garage work, fertilize the tomatoes, then flock time with all of us, that Grey parrot is becoming a dad hog, she sure loves attention, probably because she had so very little at her first home! Have a great weekend dear friends, and give my love to all in your happy home...

  Hi Taz
My mom sent Auntie Denise an email about the County Fair and cc:d your mom. We shall see, since I don't think we could manage it without her help.

Well, Mom insisted on taking a shower as soon as she got home from gym, which I find downright inconsiderate of yours truly. However her next stop was my room, and we did the outdoor carrier dance right away so I could get outside before it got too hot. It was still pretty warm, so my mom sat in the shade, and she gave me partial shade. Still got two nutriberries though.

We then came inside and shared a Ravioli lunch which Mom always adds a big dollop of cottage cheese to in order to increase the protein level. Of course, it also makes it taste better, and since I like cottage cheese and also like pasta this was all an excellent luncheon as far as I was concerned. In fact, I liked it so much I pinched my mom's lips with my beak trying to get some of her food out of her mouth. She was less than thrilled about that, but she gave up the pasta!

...good luck to uncle Burt in his drag race his weekend, I hope he does well and does not get injured! It seems like hot and humid are the catch words of the day for now, we are actually having a one day break in the rainfall, but it will return for at least the next three days! Boy o'boy did it ever come down last night, and noisy too, jeepers! Have a great day dear friend, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Taz
I was a good boy again today, although I did require the walkabout and a piece of cookie to entice me in to hopping in my carrier. However once we got outside, the house across the street had their gardeners there using a leaf blower that upset me so much I wouldn't even eat my nutriberry. Mom finally picked up my carrier and set it in her lap to make me feel safe. And I got my nutriberry after we came inside.

Speaking of nutriberries, the ones my mom ordered from Amazon have already arrived, and they are just fine. None broken in shipping, and she is very pleased. I am smacking my beak!

Mom sent an email to the pro bono lawyer about the docs she sent him for her insurance appeal. She didn't want to bug him, but she did want to make sure he got them. It is so great that she even found him to help her. He emailed her back in 20 minutes! He'll have something for her next week.

Mom says my new nickname is T-Rex, because I have dinosaur legs and feet (She was studying them while I sat in her lap in the carrier.). I don't know whether to be proud or insulted!

Kiddo

P.S. Chipper asked about the county fair pig races and pie eating contest. I was thinking August? Which leaves July for an Independence Day celebration. What do you think?

Our day started off with dark,dismal,dreary rain with temperatures of 68 then by the afternoon the sun came out bright and it was 73!Mom couldn't finish her yard work because everything was soaked so she worked on getting some of the house chores done instead! She got busy and made turkey cutlet roll ups with tomatoes,cheese and spinich for dinner tonight!We are all hoping to get out on the deck to eat dinner with them tonight!
That must be funny to have the lawns and gardens being watered at 4 in the morning!Those programmable things are so confusing at times!I do hope your sweet Momma got it working right!
That sounds like so much fun that your parronts are going to have with their bike!I do hope the weather stays nice for them so they can have an enjoyable time out riding!
My Mom is going to finish her errand runs tomorrow and hopefully get back on time for a change,she has to go to a HS graduation party for her niece on Saturday so she'll be gone the whole afternoon,maybe we'll get her on Sunday for the day!Mom is so busy working on my wedding plans when she does get home!
I just can't thank you enough for the beautiful photo of me in the boat with my frothers!As soon as Mom has some time she's going to put them up in my gallery for all to see!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Love,always and forever,Dixie

no need to apologize,I think with the way BC was running last night it was so easy to get things messed up and I just can't thank you enough for doing all that hard work you did with your incredible photography skills!I was so hard to get my blogs out and between BC running ever so slowly and the pages not loading and only one letter at a time coming up whenever my Mom typed it was pretty frustrating! I just can't thank you enough for doing my pictures for me!I probably had the wording all wrong and I'm the one who should be apologizing to you!Again thank you sooo sooo much for such a wonderful time last night!

  Hi Taz
Thanks so much for the pic of SP and me. I totally forgot to sign us up, so it was very nice of you to take care of us anyway.

I was hoping I would get to bite my dad for Father's Day, but apparently that is not the way it works. All I can say is....Bummer!

Well, last night's milonga was a lot of fun, but still very difficult for yours truly. My computer kept freezing up, and I blame BC. That was the only page that would display, no matter what I tried to do and it wouldn't move at all.....over and over and over! Hope everybirdy else had a good time.

I tried being cranky about my sunbath today, but then finally around 2:30 I gave in and climbed on to my mom's shoulder so she could walk me to my carrier and we went outside. Thank goodness it was a little cooler today and only in the mid 70s, but my mom still had to sit in amongst the bushes to have shade. I guess I had better cooperate earlier tomorrow.

Mom is making a huge pot of jambalaya for dinner tonight. This is one of my favorites, and I can't wait until it is done. The house already smells wonderful!

  Hi Taz,
Thanks for blogging back! Yes, I would be able to e-mail you the picture. I did write to you to let you know I had it in my gallery, but I could have e-mailed it to you. A while back, I was having some trouble with my e-mail, but I have a new one now.

Next time we have a milonga, I will get the picture to you by e-mail. I know you did the love boat one and it came out beautiful, so I thought you wouldn't have any problem with it. I still like the pictures. If you look in my gallery, you will see I was able to make them bigger.

Thanks again for making both the pictures for me! You do a wonderful job making pictures for the milonga!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE DADS!!!

Thanks so much for making my picture with both the boat and the slip and slide and thanks for using the picture I left for you! I did notice it came out very small and I was able to make it bigger. I hope you didn't have too much trouble with the picture. I know last time too, you told me it was coming out small.

The pictures themselves came out very nice. The boat picture looks beautiful with the waterfall in the background. I have them posted in my gallery.

We all had such a good time at the milonga last night. It was so much fun. Thank you for making our milonga a great one!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!! Left you a vote.
Blog me back, if you can. I would love to hear from you.

Well, this walking around the house and then giving Kiddo a treat while he is on Mom's shoulder to get me into the outside carrier should be patented! Three days in a row, and I was once again fine with it. However once we got out there, the next door neighbor fired up his lawn mower, and I was a bit concerned it might come over and chew me up. Mom kept talking to me and playing finger fighting with me, but I was still very nervous and glad to come back inside.

The notice about this month's milonga is up on the Milonga Page and the Calendar Page. It is this Saturday, and it should be a lot of fun. So go read the details, and I will see you all there!

  Hi Taz
I would like to say I was a good boy about going outside today, but after 30 minutes of coaxing Mom just dropped a towel on me and put me in the carrier. She said she didn't have to time to fool around with me since she is going to a play with her friend this afternoon. So not only was I toweled, but I am losing her for several hours right in the middle of prime mommy time! I did get my nutriberries though, and it was really nice out. Of course, as soon as we came back inside, the carrier was my favorite place to play.

So Mom and her friend are going to see The Producers live at the local playhouse. It is their birthday thing, and her friend just had her birthday. Mom has seen both movie versions, so she is looking forward to seeing it live. I get her back when she gets home.

Farewell Lola. We will miss you, sweet Lola, and our hearts go out to the La Habra flock in their time of grief. I know they will grieve, but she is flying free at the Bridge now.

First of all I have a question for everybirdy. I keep getting a request to approve a pop up for ar.voice.com, and it only happens when I am on BC. Since it disrupts my typing, and I am never going to OK it I find it very annoying. It began a few weeks ago and keeps happening. Is anybirdy else seeing this?

Now to the good stuff. After Mom and Dad got home from the regular Saturday morning grocery run, Mom came in with me to read. After very little fuss I was sitting on her shoulder and when she went to the outdoor carrier I climbed right on and then right inside. That's two days in a row! I am getting such "good boys" from Mom you would hardly believe it is me! And I got three nutriberries, since I dropped one yesterday and Mom didn't notice! Yahoo! Life is good.

Mom has NBC on hoping to hear that CA Chrome is winning the Belmont Stakes and the triple crown. Go CC!!

I signed up for the milonga picture with the boat, and also with the waterslide, if I can get both pictures.

I left you a picture in my gallery (the first one on the top) and it is a birthday picture. This is an original picture so it should come out good. Could you please use this one! Mom made me a loveboat picture from this one and it came out beautiful.

If you have any problem with the picture, please let me know and I will see what I can do!

Thank you so much!! Hope you're having a nice weekend! Leaving a vote for you too.

I am back in full Superbrat mode. Not only would I not get into my outside carrier today, but I bit my mom when she tried to pick me up to put me in. Needless to say I am now in time out and there will be no sunbath happening today. I think I made a mistake! I don't even have her in here with me reading.

Sounds like Dad did good in his first race. It must be very eggciting. My mom went to a local drag race that was cars and bikes when she was in college, and it was a lot of fun. Her date was racing and came in 3rd in his class (or whatever they call it.....it was longgggg time ago).

Your house sounds like bird city. Lots of birdies both inside and out. We had a mama duck with her babies walk through our front yard a couple of years ago. The truly are adorable.

Other than that it is a quiet Thursday. Hopefully before the day is over, Mom's finger will stop hurting and she will forgive me. I really haven't done anything like that in a long time, and I don't think I will do it again any time soon!

  Hi Taz
So how did your dad do in the races? You said he had done two and had one more to go, but not how he placed. And did he make it thru the eliminations very far? That must be pretty eggciting for your mom to watch.

Congratulations to our new King Sam. He is enjoying his first day in the castle, and I know he will love all the things there are to do there. Now it is time to start voting for Pepper #40673, our Canadian candidate. So get on over there and peck that vote button.

Well, once again I was a stubborn brat today and refused to get in to my outside carrier. I wouldn't even let my mom touch me or pick me up, since that meant she would put me in it. Of course, later this afternoon I will change my mind, but then it will be too late due to lack of shade in the yard for my mom to sit in. I have to wonder if perhaps I have made an error in judgment.

Other than that the day is pretty good. Mom spent hours in my room reading in her unsuccessful attempt to get me to relax and cooperate. Plus we shared the leftover chicken bowl from yesterday (I don't think my mom can eat a whole serving of anything!) I even nibbled on a piece of cabbage today, which surprised Mom a lot. Have to keep her guessing, right?
