I lived with my first parents for 15 years until they had to move into a retirement home. I moved to my 2nd home which had 15 very loud, aggressive Rottweiler/Akit- a mixed dogs in it. My owners were terrified of me and everytime I got on the floor everyone panicked because of all the dogs. Only a few months ago I moved into my 3rd home. The lady removed from one dog filled home into another. I was very scared and started to pluck, scream and shake from nervousness.
On Saturday March 30th 2013 Momma Deb got a call to come to get me. I am now in my final and forever home with Sky and the flockily.

  Hi Zeena
It's Popeye with your daily vote.
Yesterday turned out to be 1.8 degrees hotter than Saturday. Even though dad really needed to work outside he decided to work inside instead. He helped mom finish cleaning the last two cages and then he re-mopped the kitchen floor. At that time, dad heard something outside. He went to see what it was and guess what? IT WAS RAINING! It was a real downpour. And it lasted a fantastic 45 SECONDS! BIG WHOOP! It evaporated in less than 5 minutes. but it was worse in other places. There were lighting strikes on Catalina Island that started brush fires and knocked out power and phones. There was also a lightening strike on Venice Beach that sent over 10 people to the hospital. Yup, that's life in Southern California.
After all the excitement was over, mom and dad started on dinner. They had decided on cooking a small pork roast in the Ninja. Dad wanted to used the steam/roast function. Mom had a recipe that called for beer so dad bought some beer and added it to the pot, along with onions and garlic. It sure did smell good while it was cooking, but smell isn't everything. The beer that dad used was too strong and the liquid was sour. And to top it off, dad cooked the roast too long and it turned out dry. We think that dad should stick with the BBQ grill.
Today will be with a high of 91 and a low of 68.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs.
Popeye

Gosh last night we sure had some very bad storms. A lot of thunder and rain and Tornado warnings in our area. I don't think Mom was too happy with all the noise, and it kept her up very late. Today's another day, and it's looking better for us.

  Hi Zeena
A BIT OF HISTORY I BETCHA DIDN'T KNOW.

Hours after Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941, the Secret Service found themselves in a bind. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was to give his Day of Infamy speech to Congress on Tuesday, and although the trip from the White House to Capitol Hill was short, agents were not sure how to transport him safely

At the time, Federal Law prohibited buying any cars that cost more than $750, so they would have to get clearance from Congress to do that, and nobody had time for that. One of the Secret Service members, however, discovered that the US Treasury had seized the bulletproof car that mobster Al Capone owned when he was sent to jail in 1931. They cleaned it, made sure it was running perfectly and had it ready for the President the next day.

Al Capone's 1928 Cadillac V-8 "Al Capone" Town Sedan became the President's Limo in December 1941.

Mechanics are said to have cleaned and checked each feature of the Caddy well into the night of December 7th, to make sure that it would run properly the next day for the Commander-in-Chief. And run properly it did. It had been painted black and green to look identical to Chicago's police cars at the time. To top it off, the gangster's 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan had 3,000 pounds of armor and inch-thick bulletproof windows.

Oh my, they look like they are injured ... I'm not liking them, too scary.
Today sure was a nasty big stormy day. The thunder booms and flashy lights were pretty bad. There is a lot of damage around. We were lucky and are fine. I hope that every bird and family are doing ok too.
Maybe we'll start getting better weather soon, I hope so.

  Hi Zeena
when our mom used to work at the Pittsburgh Aviary that has now become the National Aviary there was a display of bleeding heart ddoves and nearly every day people would panic and report to us that there were doves that were bleeding in the display area they were kept. if the people had just read the signs posted by the display they would have realized that this is what the doves looked like.

Vote #891 for the month which is certainly not a milestone, however it was your 1700th vote overall. That's something anyway. It being Sunday, here is your run rate for the month: 1046. That should be plenty to earn your crown, which it is definitely time to start shopping for. I am sure your talented Mom will be doing your Royal Portrait, but if she can forward it to me or Auntie Denise for the Bio info and BOTM plaque for the Royal Gallery, that would be greyt.

And wow! They really do like they are wounded, don't they!??

  July 27th BOTM POST
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.
