Gandolf came to my store at 3 months old and I was the one who named and handfed him. Three months later he was sold, lucky for me after two weeks he was returned. A year later the pet store I worked at decided to no longer sell "big" birds. I was moving to Boston in a month and my manager asked me if I wanted to buy Gandolf. He told me it would make him feel better knowing he went to someone he already knew and loved. I told him I would but I felt bad taking him to my parents house then dragging him half way across the country a month later. Needless to say he "adopted" me and the move went really well. Gandolf"s only complaint, we didn't get enough time with his fellow feathered friends we met on the road!.

Hi! My name is Gandolf "The Grey"

I am an African Grey from Westland, MI.

Poopypants, Randall (who he insists is behind all the naughty things he does), Scramble, and Gandy G.

10 years old   M

African Grey

Peanuts, ramen noodles, whole wheat bread, broccoli, red seedless grapes, granola cereal, and broccoli cheese soup.

At work with mom, the park, grandma and grampa's house, on top of the chinchilla's cage, in the car (I espically like it when mom takes the T tops off for me), and my favorite store: Discount Pet.

Getting dried off with the towel after bathtime, the vaccum cleaner, getting hugs, when people don't answer the phone after the second ring,

Everything, but I especially enjoy these things. When she takes me on fun adventures to the park, pet store, and the ice cream shop. I love when I sit on her lap and she scraches my head and ruffles my feathers the opposite way they grow. I enjoy learning new tricks she teaches me, espically when I get my reward: peanuts! I even like the quiet times at night when I"m on my perch looking out the window and she's watching t.v.

When I climb down to the bottom of my perch I say "Gandolf, up up up". Saying something I know is annoying then laughing afterwards. When my mom yells at me I always responsed "what?" cause I know it makes her laugh. I pull the skin off of my grapes before I can eat them. I make this crazy alien gurgling noise everytime someone gets a drink of water. If mom barks at me, I meow. If mom meows at me, I bark. I'll yell "want some!" everytime someone is eating something I like. My favorite toy is just some colored wooden cylinders with a big purple bell at the bottom but when I "attack" it I always hang upside down..

ROCK 'N' ROLL!!!!.
