After mom and dad got Tango, my Citron-Crested Cockatoo sister, they wanted another parrot so they came Marc Marrone's place again. I cried and wailed and stepped over the other Greys to get them to notice me. That was it. They were sold. I knew I had them.
I could barely walk and had very few feathers except those soft fluffy down feathers. I had to come home in an aquarium tank and mom and dad hand-fed me for a few weeks.

Next came Bumbles, a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo, who was rescued from a man who couldn't bring Bumbles with him to his new condo in Florida. You can see pictures of him below, with me. He now lives with Dad. I miss him a lot but he is happy and I get to see him sometimes.

Mom strongly encourages people to get a rescue bird. So many abandoned birds need a home with someone who will give them tons of love and care. And they have so much to give in return!

Hi! My name is Kahlua

I am a Congo African Grey from Poughkeepsie, NY.

Lu, Lu-Lu Bird, Louie, Grey-Grey (I gave myself that one), and Beautiful

11 years old   F

Congo African Grey

Sesame Rounds (but only the peanut, not the soy), anything mom eats (although I don't get everything I want), Chex cereal, cashews, pine nuts, almonds, and walnuts. I like apples and grapes and blueberries too. I try to drink the juice out of the grapes and blueberries! I would eat candy, like jelly beans or Skittles if only mom would let me. And I always know how to spot cheese. I now mom puts it on Cheeseburgers and even it it's hidden under the bun, Tango and I both know it's there so we tag team the burger. One of us flips the top off and then we both go after the cheese! I don't understand why I can't have some of those things!

I love to sit on the chair or a pillow next to mom, on her knee when she reads, under a blanket when I'm tired, my green curvy perch, and on mom's laptop while she works. Of course I like to be in the highest place I can be. I love rope swings too and spiral hanging ropes but the place where we live now doesn't hold any type of hook. The ceiling just crumbles and the rope falls down. :-(

I hate loud or unfamiliar noises and I try to hide under the table, bed, blanket, or even a pillow.

I shake my head if I don't like something -- a song, a noise, a TV show. I'll keep shaking until it stops.

I like to cuddle on mom's chest at a certain time of night and will intentionally try to disrupt any activity she's doing if it gets too late.

I hate to see myself on video shake my head "no" to tell mom to turn it off.

Also I will not do stuff in front of the camera. I will stop whatever I'm doing. Mom has to hide the camera to get me on video.

I don't like the words "bye" or "good-bye". I refuse to say them or acknowledge them if someone says them to me. When mom goes out and I have to go to my cage, I go on one of my perches and I sulk. I won't play or do anything until mom comes back home.

I am not happy that mom and dad are not together anymore. Dad has my old friend, Bumbles, the Rose-Breasted Cockatoo you see in my photos, and the Budgies. We call them "The Littles". Bumbles was (and is) my partner in crime. He was adopted by mom and dad and he got in lots of trouble all the time. He used to teach me all these bad habits!


Mom acts silly. She sings and dances with me.
She buys me my favorite treats and cuddles with me -- on my own terms.

She teaches me cool words and phrases and songs. I pick up my own as well. I decide which words, phrases, sentences, sounds, and noises I like.

Mom bought fish and I love to watch them swim when she isn't home -- and even when she is. But don't worry. I can't get to them.

She laughs at me and lets
me watch my favorite TV shows.

She knows I don't like my head rubbed all the the time so she shakes my hand and gives me high-fives. She also taught me lots of tricks that I LOVE to do!

She lets me "help" her around the house. She tells me how much she loves me -- all the time! I tell her, "I love you."


I love to bite my nails. I also like to bite on fabric. I don't eat it but just throw the little pieces all over the place.

I shake my head from side to side before I eat a piece of food.

I want you to rub my head but then I pull away.

I have to be with mom all the time, but don't want to be cuddled or have my head rubbed all the time. I just want to sit close or have her nearby where I can see her. I also have to be with mom anywhere she goes in the house -- not because I don't want to be alone but because I want to know what's going on.

I know when mom is about to cry and I make the same crying noises too. Now that I'm getting older, I can tell if she's sad even if she doesn't cry and I make the crying noise at that time too.

I laugh and cry while watching TV shows before the audience even gets a chance to laugh.

I love Judge Judy and will do the intro song to Judge Judy at 4pm if mom doesn't have it on when she's home. Mom thinks I probably do it even when she isn't here!

I'll also do the PC Richard Jingle a lot -- especially at 4PM or at night because they used to sponsor that "Time and "Temperature" message that came on right before Judge Judy. I do that jingle if mom asks me to do it.

I used to do the Jeopardy jingle at exactly 7pm when mom used to watch that.

I like to "help" feed the fish mom got. If she doesn't feed them at the right time, I go to the end of the bed and bop my head "yes" and call to mom to remind her it's time.

I love to imitate the noise they use to bleep out bad words on TV programs.

I hate pooping in my cage. I will hold it in all night until I get up and out of my cage in the morning. During the day, I like to go in Tango's cage. Why mess up my cage?

Sometimes, when I see a picture of my old friend, Bumbles, or if he comes to see me, which is not often, I often start doing all those things I'm not supposed to do that Bumbles taught me and does when he visits.
.

I'm a cool grey! (I taught myself that phrase.).

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very spring like here and I have been enjoying the sunshine!
We did chores yesterday since mom was off. Mostly going through old mail and straightening up the linen closet. Mom got some shelf liner at the dollar store and lined all the shelves in there. It looks very nice and we even found more stuff to donate to the Goodwill!!
We really should have gotten on BC earlier than we did but we had no idea they were going to take the site down last night. It would be really nice if they gave us a "heads up" but I suppose it is not important to them. All the sites were down so they must have been doing maintenance on the server.
It's back to work for mom tonight so we are getting the rest of the laundry done. My play cage was all cleaned when I came out this morning and I have new toys also. I guess I am going to be a busy bird today!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another pretty sunny one here!
I think they have finished with the road construction! YAY! It took 2 weeks but everything has been paved now. They still have to put the barriers back into the center and paint the stripes but I'm sure that will not be as loud as a steam roller! They had most of the road shut down last night so mom had to cut through the markets parking lot to get home!
Mom loved Captain America Civil War. Captain America has always been moms favorite. She admire the way he does the right thing even if it's not the easiest or popular thing. He is an honorable character!
They did not get back until Midnight. McKenzie did great in her crate even though she got put in there 2 hours early. Mom got us up when she got home and took McKenzie for a nice walk. Then she made us a waffle! We had a Midnight Waffle Party!! We only stayed up for half an hour and then we all went back to bed. It was fun but since I'm a bit sleepy today, I don't think we will be doing it much!
Mom has to go to PetCo today to get McKenzie her Science Diet and some new toys! That puppy goes through toys almost as fast as I do! I'm impressed!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a great day! It's only 80 here today so that is tolerable! There is a nice breeze and mom has the window open so I'm enjoying that. My cage was all cleaned out again this morning so I've been working on redecorating.
McKenzie had an upset tummy this morning. Ian bought her a rawhide bone at Petco yesterday and it did not agree with her. Mom will stick with the Dingo bones since they have never upset her tummy. Petco only had the tiny Dingo bones so mom will pick up the more appropriate sized ones at her work. She is feeling fine now and wants to eat everything in sight! Just like normal!hehehehehe
We have been doing chores most of the day. Mom washed the winter jackets and is going to hang them in the hall closet. She got the stove scrubbed and wants to get some things done in her bedroom later. She will have to wait for Jennifer to get home so that she can occupy McKenzie while mom and I go in the bedroom. If McKenzie is in the bedroom you have to watch her all the time because she likes to grab books and try to chew them up! That is a huge NO NO in this house! I don't get to do it so she can't either!
I hope the day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a great day. It was nice here. Mom and I did chores and laundry. We cleaned out a bunch of drawers in the bathroom. There was some old stuff there that we threw out and then checked our first aid kit to make sure it was filled up. Mom hates it when she needs a band aid and there are none left! Mom went to the market across the street to pick up some food for Merlin and return the movies from yesterday. After that she was home the rest of the day.
Enjoy the evening!!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Very pretty up here again. We are suppose to be reaching 80 tomorrow. A bit early for that but it's only one day. The 70's are perfectly lovely and I think we should just have 70 year round!hehehehehe
I really enjoyed the new Star Wars. There was lots of stuff blowing up and you know that I love that. I think dad liked it too. Mom, Ian and Jennifer had already seen it at the movie theater but said there were things they missed the first time.
I have had a lovely afternoon hanging out with mom. I got to have her all to myself. McKenzie is gone for a spa day at the groomers. First time she has been there. She was putting on her cuteness when mom dropped her off and everyone fell in love with her. She really is a sweet puppy and is very nice to everyone she meets.
I got to run around the living room and that was lots of fun. I got picked up when I started to chew on the carpet! Go figure!
Dad and Ian have gone to pick up McKenzie. She just had a bath and they are going to file her nails also. She has very sharp nails.
The rest of the day will be spent doing the chores we should have done earlier!hahahahaha Playing was much more fun and the chores will still be there later.
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Another beautiful spring day up here!
I didn't get too many notes done yesterday. Mom had to go out and was gone longer than she had planned. By the time she got home it was time for bed and dad had already taken over the computer anyway!
Gardeners are here this morning and out mowing. It is keeping McKenzie occupied for a little while at least.
She is shedding and mom has been trying to keep her brushed up. It's difficult because McKenzie still thinks brushing her hair is a game! Mom tried it out on the balcony and there were some tufts of fur left out there. A sparrow came by and collected them! I guess McKenzie's fur is going to be part of their nest! Pretty cool!!
Not much planned for today. Mom does have to go to the market since dad is home and seems to be eating everything!hahahahahah Good thing I have my mini pancakes stashed because he ate all the bread yesterday so not toast for me this morning! Pancakes are just as good!!
Enjoy they day and I hope it's spectacular!

I hope you had a great day! It's very pretty up here. The wind is still blowing so it doesn't feel as warm as I'd like but it was still nice.
Mom had lots of cleaning to get caught up on so we did that most of today. Still have things we want to get done but it's our weekend so we have tomorrow also.
I'm an Auntie!! Moms sister canary hatched 3 chicks! There is still one egg to go and I've got my toes crossed the little guy show up soon! Moms sister is rather freaked out and has been doing a lot of reading up on canary babies! I think they'll be just fine.
Uncle Chuck is at the rehab center now. They don't have phones in the rooms so his sister is suppose to bring him his cell phone.
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and big hug!

  Hello Kahlua!
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday! McKenzie and I shared a blueberry muffin for breakfast and it was yummy. We don't really celebrate Easter around here since mom always has to work and Ian is still at work. Maybe we will do something when mom is off this week. She did get a couple of vegan chocolate bars and will share them with dad, Ian and Jennifer. I think the muffin was a much better idea!
Jennifer just got back from her sisters house. She went down on Friday for a birthday party for her brother in law. He and Ian share a birthday. They announced the sex of the new baby and Maddie is getting a little sister!! I think Maddie is very excited. I know I can't wait to meet her. They don't have a name picked out yet but I'm sure it will be great.
We talked to Uncle Chuck a while ago and he is doing okay. There is a complete update on from RaneBeau on the calendar page. Jenny and Lalo have gone over to visit with Aunt Denise and the flock which is just wonderful. I know Uncle Chuck feels much better knowing that they are safe and have lots of company.
Enjoy your day and I hope it's a very special Easter for everyone!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you have a fabulous day!
It is sunny and pretty up here. We are starting out at 30 but will end up near 60. Spring!!
Mom got the filters for the vacuum dried out and put back in so I know she'll be using that evil machine today! McKenzie is shedding and it's awful! Mom has been brushing her but she thinks it's a game so it's slow going. There are still clumps of fur all over! Mom sweeps them up before she vacuums. She has to sweep up all the treats I threw out of the cage for the puppy too! I'm just doing my part with the puppy duty!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just spectacular!

  Hello Kahlua~
I'm Here!! I hope you guys had a great day! We had some nasty storms last night and today. We lost power! It went out this morning but came back on after about 10 minutes. It kept flickering off and on and then it went off and stayed off for 3 and a half hours! We sat on the sofa and watched a movie on moms Kindle. Actually, mom fell asleep with Merlin on her lap and McKenzie on the right. I was on the left in my play cage. We all sort of took a nap! The power came back on just before mom left to pick up Ian.
Mom is off tonight so she can get some sleep. Starting next week her regular days off are switching to Tuesday night and Wednesday night. That way mom will always be there for the weekend ads they throw in a couple times a month. At least she gets two days off in a row. Saturday night she has to go in at 10 since the time change happens and they will lose an hour. Hate the time change!!!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you had a wonderful day! I apologize for the c/p today but it's the only way I'm going to get notes out today! Mom is doing okay. The pain from the shingles is really less but the itching is worse!hahahahaha She'll be taking some Benadryl tonight and getting lost of sleep!
As for our BOTM this month, Kacey and Mikey are running together! They celebrated their 4th anniversary today and I think it's awesome that this young couple will be doing this together. Don't know if they can blog yet but I hope you will leave a vote anyway! The page number is 229611. Look for the wedding avatar on the calendar page!
As most of you have already heard, BC is going to eventually convert our site. It will probably be like the Reptile channel which is a magazine format. That means no blogs. They will not be fixing the site so that means Julio will probably be in the spotlight box until the site changes! I hope every bird will go to the Facebook Bird Community page to leave notes. If you don't have a Facebook page it's easy to sign up. You do not have to put any information that could be used to steal your identity. I have a page under my name with just my birthday and state where I live. If you are not comfortable with Facebook please remember mine and moms emails! We really care about you all and want to keep in touch! Mom is eileenmc2@hotmail.com and I am at sugarmcclelland@gmail.com.

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Glad to be able to blog again. I got kicked off on Saturday afternoon and couldn't get back on. The BOTD kept changing for Julio to Sherman and Peabody so I knew something was wrong. I kind of had a feeling that something was up since the BOTD has not been on BC for over 5 years. I suppose all websites have problems. At least I was able to vote for Laka both days even if I couldn't leave notes!
Nothing exciting going on here anyway so no one missed any news from me!
I'm really sorry the Milonga had to be rescheduled. I'm sure it will still be fabulous!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Kind of a quiet day around here. We have plans to get some chores done since mom is off.
Still got rain but it's been in the 50's for the past few days. Last night the crickets and frogs were out singing their little heads off! Maybe that groundhog was correct and spring will be here early. That would be nice. I think we could all use a bit of spring.

I hope you are having a great day! Happy Valentine's Day! Here is a heart just for you! ♥
Mom gave McKenzie a bath today and mom was drenched! She had to change her clothes and mop the bathroom. The dog smells good now and the bathroom is clean!hahahahahaha I dumped a bunch of seeds, nuts and pellets for McKenzie since I felt sorry for her. I think maybe mom doesn't like me doing that but I have to be a good fister and share!
Several people have asked mom if McKenzie is part coyote. One of the vet techs at our vet said that she was part coyote. Mom thought she was kidding but we researched it and it is possible! One of the nurse who takes care of the young man downstairs said that she has a friend who has a coyote hybrid and he looks just like McKenzie. It certainly would explain why she is so wild and why she makes this funny howling noise when she yawns! Doesn't really matter since there are no health concerns. Mom is just going to have to be firm about the training and let convince McKenzie that mom is the alpha. This should be very interesting!
We are having a rainy Valentine's Day but it's not cold at all. I feel awful for any bird who lives out East. When you get temps with a minus in front of them, it's bad. I'm sure every bird is staying nice and warm and cozy!
I hope your day is just wonderful! I'm leaving a vote and a big hug!!

I hope you are having a great day! We are having a little Puppy Bowl party. Don't really care about the Super Bowl. We just hope it's a fun game and that everyone has a great time.
Mom has been filing the papers we sorted out this week. That is one big job done. Now she just has to make sure everyone keeps up with filing! There is a big box of papers for dad to go through when he gets home. I'm sure he will just love doing it!
Mom has 2 more nights so we are going to enjoy them! Jennifer is home and she is watching Agents of Shield. We have seen them but she hasn't. I don't mind seeing them again.

I hope the day was great! I took a shower today and it felt good. I had been feeding McKenzie some of my treats and then decided that we both needed to get cleaned up! She started barking at me when I dumped the water on her so I know she really enjoyed it! She got toweled off and I just air dried!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad this morning so I got some quiet time! I got another piece of my hatchday cake after lunch. It was lovely.
The rest of the day was spent chasing puppy and trying to get chores done. We are now going to relax and get my notes done and perhaps watch a movie. It is very rare for mom to have a Saturday night off so we are going to make the most of it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!
Love, hugs and a vote~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope your day was fabulous! I had a pretty good one. I helped mom go through more papers today! Mom found tax returns from before she was married!!! She has been married for nearly 34 years!hahahahahaha Ian said it was pretty impressive. Mom said it was really bad of her to hang on to stuff that old! It's all shredded and gone now. We do know that McKenzie will bark at the paper shredder! Mom brought her over to it so she knows it's not a scary thing.
Mom made a trip over to the Goodwill and deposited a bunch of stuff! She is very pleased that we got rid of so much stuff! There were things mom didn't even know we had and hopefully someone else will be happy to have them!
Ian took mom to Chipotles for lunch. She loves having salads there. The manager gave them drinks and chips for free since they come in there so often. That was so nice of him!! They have had a lot of bad press lately but mom have never had a bad experience there.
Mom checked her schedule for next week and she is not scheduled until Tuesday night! That means extra days of vacation for her! YAY!! Don't know if that will be the case but it's nice if it is!
I hope you enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was busy around here. We are still going on with the spring cleaning and the back of the car is now filled with stuff for the Goodwill. Mom will have to drop that stuff off tomorrow so she can put more in there. McKenzie is in the back seat so anything we put there would be chewed up by the time mom got to Goodwill!
The kitchen and the dining room are done and now mom is working on her room. It's slow going since she can only do it when the puppy is taking a nap or at night when she is in her crate. McKenzie is a very curious girl and wants to see everything!
Dad is in Utah and says the weather is nasty. He he one of 28 trucks who are hauling the equipment for a show called Marvel Universe Live. It's got Spiderman and my favorite, Captain America. It's coming to Seattle after Utah but I don't think dad will be hauling the stuff again.
I hope you have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a hug too!
With Love ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a fun day! McKenzie is napping at the moment so I have a chance to get a note out! Who knew that our entire lives would be taken over by one little puppy?? I feel just awful when I can't get by to say hello but there are times when it's non stop around here. I think the puppy is trying to set a new worlds record for destruction of furniture! It is not going over well with mom!hehehehe
Mom is helping with the toy clearance at work. It's that time of year again! Actually they are about 2 weeks early with it this year. Soon all the pool toys will be out and people will be walking by dreaming of warmer weather and lots of sunshine.hehehehehe HECK! Easter will be here before you know it! Well, it will be in the stores before you know it. We have always enjoyed winter but this year we can't wait for Spring and some sunshine and long walks around the lake. It makes for a sleepy puppy and more time for me on BC!
I sure hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been okay here so far but it's just starting!hahahahahaha
Gloomy day but I can't complain since so many places are having very cold temps.
Mom is getting some laundry done and we just had snack time. I had my apple and a couple of almonds, Merlin had some of the Greenie treats and McKenzie had a Blue Dog bakery cookie. Mom says it's like a daycare around here!!
McKenzie was in a very chewy mood this morning and tried to chew on the legs of the coffee table. Mom redirected her to a toy but that didn't last long. She then tried to chew the lever on the bottom of the computer desk chair! She is tenacious! Right now she is trying to kill her stuffed reindeer toy.
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! We are doing laundry and mom has been cleaning out the kitchen. She is giving her Kitchen Aid mixer to a friend at work. Mom has had it for 8 years and used it once! It sure did free up a lot of space in the pantry!
We have to clean out George and Gracie's tank and mom wants to clean the rug in the hallway. McKenzie barks at the vacuum and the cleaner still so Ian will take her out on the balcony while mom does that. She seems to like it out there. She sits in on of the chairs and watches the world go by!
I hope your Saturday is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! Mine has been pretty good. I have been on puppy duty most of the day. It sure is a hard job. Everything is taking so much longer since mom has to stop every few seconds to chase after the puppy! It takes a long time just to get a note done these days!
It's been a clear and pretty day but it was cold. We just hung out at home today and did some cleaning. There is a lot more to do since McKenzie is a bird puppy! She loves chewing paper and cardboard! Yep! Part bird!
It's our weekend but I have no idea what is planned. I hope we get to take some time and watch a movie. There's lots of new things at the Redbox.
You enjoy the rest of your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a great day! Nothing much going on here except for chasing the puppy around. She is taking a nap right now so it's quiet. For now I should say!
Lots of stuff to get done around but mom promised I could have BC time today! I feel awful when we run out of time and I don't get around to see how every bird is doing! Just wish I had something interesting to share!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's lots of fun!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you having a wonderful day! We are still in the midst of cleaning out the storage room. Dad has all sorts of junk in there and I do mean junk! Who needs 4 boxes of old wires and plugs???? Not mom!hehehehehehe She found plugs for things that have been gone for years!
Mom has to stop by the market later to get some bread. Only bread left in the house was the rye that Ian got for his lunches. It does not make good peanut butter toast so I had my apple first this morning.
McKenzie was sleeping in the dining room when a truck came by and put on his jake break! It makes a terrible noise and made her jump up and start barking! They are not suppose to use them in the city but they do all the time. Guess they never get caught so they keep doing it. I know she will get use to all the noises around here someday. I did and Merlin doesn't care anyway since he is a cat and thinks he is above it all!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you had a fun day!! Mine wasn't bad. Mom took a bunch of stuff over to the Goodwill and then took McKenzie to Petco. Ian gave us a gift card for Christmas so she got to go spend it! Merlin got a lovely new food bowl since McKenzie broke his last one. McKenzie picked out some new toys. Mom tried to get her a boo boo dog which is a long stuffed dog, but she didn't want that. She picked out a reindeer that squeaks and a bear that has a rope body. They were clearance from Christmas. It's what she wanted and she has been carrying the reindeer around since she got home! She got some cookies from the cookie bar and more Science Diet puppy food. I got nothing!!!! Mom has another card to use for me but I don't really need anything right now. There was a beautiful Golden Cap Conure there. He was $650 and mom couldn't afford that! I don't think we need anymore animals around here! Mom said he was a really gorgeous bird.
McKenzie has to go to the vet on Friday. She has to get the 2nd booster shots. They only give them a tiny bit at a time. Since we don't know if she ever had shots before she came to live with us, they have to give the shot over 3 months. I wonder what she is going to think of our vet! I hope she gets to see Dr. Jennifer, my vet, cause she is awesome!
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a spectacular day! I have not gotten many notes done in the past few days. I'm sure every bird knows what has been taking up the typist time~or should I say who!!! It's like having a second job. She seems to like to get into everything! We are slowly getting her use to the schedule and she is doing great sleeping in the crate at night. Mom moved it out to the living room for the nights she is not home. She discovered the living room window and school buses yesterday. That kept her occupied for half an hour. We are working on "mom and Merlin are not chew toys" right now!
Mom has met more neighbors in the past 2 weeks than the entire 6 years we have lived here. Everyone seems to have a dog here. Not like when Mandy was out walking. McKenzie is learning to socialize with other dogs but gets so distracted that she forgets why she is out there.
We had snow on Sunday but it only lasted for the day. Just fine by me. It was slushy the next day but the roads were taken care of so the driving wasn't bad. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so if it wants to snow again, it can! Don't think it will though. Never snows when you want it too!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!
love ya ~ Sugar ♥
