Hi! My name is Dory

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Baltimore, MD.

9 years old   F

Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet

Anything hot-- peppers, yum! Dory also loves carrots and her greens.

Dory loves to be anywhere I am. She especially enjoys coming to work with me where she can climb and play.

Dory hates young children, and wants nothing to do with them. She will both verbally and physically let you know this.

I love my owners because theye take me places and let me try new things. They keep me entertained with lots of fun toys, and interesting treats. I love my mommy, but my daddy is my favorite person!

Every morning, Dory greets me prompty at 6:15 AM. Dory doesn't talk much yet, but she has a few different laughs that she's picked up from being around friends and family..

  story about santa bird
Ever wonder how mysterious red feathers appear in your home on Christmas, or how empty nut shells appear on your floor. Or better yet, how did they get out of their cage on Christmas? Let me tell you: This is the story of a beautiful Scarlet Macaw that lived In the rain forest of Peru a long time ago. Now this beautiful bird was Named Reds. He was different from the other macaws, He always looked after The other birds, if they were weak or small or sick. He took care of everyone else but himself. Every year on Christmas Eve, Santa visited the rain forest And asked each bird what they needed or wanted; Reds made sure the Others got First pick. Santa would then ask Reds what he wanted, but he always Asked for food for the others or medicine for the sick ones. Every year It Was the same scene; he never asked for anything for himself. He was Happy to help the Others and it made him proud to see them all eating treats and playing And singing On Christmas Day. Many years passed by and Reds was getting older. He was starting to Have a touch of Arthritis in his wings. It was harder for him to fly Any distance and his eyesight was not what it used to be, but still Nothing changed, he was just a little slower and more tired, his Feathers not quite as bright, but he continued to help the others. Then one year on Christmas Eve, Santa stopped as usual and once again, He asked Reds What he wanted for Christmas. With great difficulty and pain, he Climbed up on Santa's knee and said, "Can you make me young again?" "You see, I am in pain now and can't get around as easy to check on Everyone." Santa thought about this and turned to Reds, and said, "You know my Friend; This job is getting to be too much for me also, so I was thinking of Taking On an Assistant to deliver to my feathered friends." "Who better than You?" "It doesn't pay a lot but the rewards are the best". "The only Thing is You must leave the forest". "Leave the forest? It is the only place I know. Who will take care of The others if I go with you?" Santa said "Look around, they have each other to depend on. It is time Someone did something for you". Reds talked to the others and they Agreed it was time for him to go, so he climbed on Santa's shoulder and Off they flew that night. Now Reds will never grow any older or have any pain and every year on Christmas Eve, make sure you leave some walnuts out, because, if you Hear tiny claws on your roof, you know it is Santa Bird, come to visit Your feathered friends.beaky kisses and a vote Boba

VOTE4U, No tree here either but Dad's off tomorrow, I heard him tell Mom he's put it up. I'll believe it when I see it, he,he,he! Sorry dad, Mom's typing tonight!! Just a quick visit, Hey How's tricks? I don't really have any yet but I did start new one, I figured out I like climbing down off Mommy's bed in the morning when she's getting ready for work & walk over to her & talk to her feet. I am just amazed by them. I love stocking them with my shoulders up & head down then walk up press my beak to her foot and whisper my secrets to them. Then I do the process over & over again. Finally deciding to take a bite of her toes, nails, heals, etc. Sounds like fun hugh?? What do you think of people feets? Have you figured them out? Maybe it has something to do with I don't like hands but the feets look alike but don't seem so scary, they don't move around me. hey I "shrinked" myself Mom, he,he,he! Well I gotta go Nite, Nite, Mom's got the heat on so I don't get chilled but Mom it's 74 degrees outside AND I'm inside. Enough with the heat, you wonder why I'm not sleeping behind my new toys, it's a little stuffy. Have a good Friday, XXXXOOOO

VOTE4U, Hi! Long time so speak, sorry, Mom has been going crazy & really misses talking to everyone. I JUST LOVE YOUR COLOR!! Mom saw an albino IRN yesterday, allll white!! Kind of pretty in a non-color way,he,he,he. We wouldn't know anything about that!! When are you getting more photos, I like to see, someone that has to put up with their Mommy taking pictures all the time, like me!! My tree is STILL not here, I'm getting really disappointed is Mom & Dad, let's get it together. I just hear Mom saying she's just not into decorating as much this year, what's that. All I know is EVERY budy else has one AND I WANT MINE!!!! I keep reminding her & she keeps reminding Dad, but it gets dark before they get home. Hey no excuses, please!! OK, the weekend is almost here!! Yeah!!! Talk soon, Luv ya, Louie Oh yeah, I say now "Louie wants kisses, smouchy, smouchy......."

VOTE4U, Just a quick fly bye (walk by), Mom's heading out till later & she won't let me use her laptop by myself, I just don't understand??? Guess she's afraid cause I pick off all the silver tabs, he,he,he. Boy somethings she just can't take a joke about! Your ring color sounds like it's going to be great!! Mine has been coming in for months but it's still light pink/red. I have seen a ophoto of another yellow & his is real thick & red cause he's older, so I guess mine will be like that. I'm sure your Mommy loves all your sounds no matter what they are, plus you are still a baby, you have plenty of time to talk! Mom will watch for your cage address!! No shower today, Mom says it's a little chilly, huFF, so I say no touchy!! My 1 day of a weak moment isn't getting Mom to far at the scratchy's but she keeps trying. Good for her, cause I do like it just not the hands. She's just gott figure a way without the hands... she'll think of something. Mom says my cage is getting yucky, whatever that is and she wants to hose it clean tomorrow outside, so looks like I might get a patio trip again, YEAH!!! Gotta fly/walk!! XXXOOO

VOTE4U, WOW!!!!!!!! What color is your ring, pinky red????? How old are you now?? Funny hugh, my Mommy named me LU LU cause she thought I was a girl but I had the text where my poor toe nail got cut short & I screamed, OK, it just dripped a little red. And surprise I'm a boy. Mommy & Daddy are both glad, I think! If she would have waited a couple of months my ring started & NO RED! But she was afraid I would say Lu Lu all the time, she was right!! LOUUUUUUUUUIE was my 1st word & I say it ALL the time, he,he,he. Hey, I'm the the main attraction, right? If not I let everyone know!! Are you talking more now? I say a new word or group every few days, this week a lot! I keep surprising Mommy. Yesterday I said "Get it Louie" mom says it for me to play with my squeaky birdie. I make my birdies exact squeaky noise. Mom really loves it!! Stay in touch more and let me know what your doing/ playing/saying/eating. Me & mommy love to hear about us IRN's. You know there aren't very many of us around! Another birdie told my Mommy that where they live in NJ, they don't even allow IRN's, so they have never seen one before BC. I'll tell them to come see your beautiful color, too!! Oh yea, Mom asked me to ask your Mommy to send my e-mail your cage address, cause she's sending all my BC BBFF's prizes for the holidays. I get sur-"Prizes" from Mommy all the time, so I better get one, too! It's beddie time! nite-nite XXXOOOA

Vote4U,2 Thanks for helpping w/ votes & visit!! You are such a pretty girl. Since your mommy has hand raise you, my mom wonders how much different you are than me since I was in a pet store. All thru birdie people say the ideal is to get us from breeders as babys so we can be hand raised but thank goodness some M & D's get birdies from stores, too! Mom said she really doesn't know what kale is?? Do you cook it 1st? Also, she doesn't eat peppers, what kind are ok for you? Mom said there are alot of different ones & she would be worried about getting the wrong one. I'm a pretty fussy eater but I always each my green grapes & seed mix w/vitamins, so I'm OK. Hope you all had a great weekend. TTYS xxxxoooo

  Vote4U, I just love your pretty color! Today I said - Just a minute, cause Mom yells it out to me from another room when she's busy & I'm calling her to come play. I'm helping a friend that's a IRN like us, Sunny, she's very nice & cute but didn't have very many votes or visitors, so I thought I'd make her week & try to get her so many they would have to make her BOTW. (Sunny sis to Popeye,Calico & Alex) Please drop her a Vote & a short Note. Maybe later send some extra votes and visits, so she feels extra special. Thanks!!! I'll visit soon & catch up! XXXOOO

I've met some beautiful females like you! hank is so lucky to be added to your family, it's so nice of your Mom & Dad to adopt him even though he's still got some problems. I was a bad biter & now I'm a good boy! It took my mom's hands looking like she pruned a rose bush daily but... now we have great times together. it only took a couple of months. Us boys are suppose to be nicer the IRN girls but I would never say that! (he,he) When is your bithday? mine 3/34/07. I'm almost 7mths old. Mom any I have some much fun and adventures now.

Dory, sweet name. Wow are you cute, your color is special. Do you still like to bite? Us IRN's take a little time to learn I finally pretty much stopped biting Mom, just when I forget. I still won't "Step up" on my Mom's finger to come out of my cage. But I do "Step on" her open hand to come out and no nipes!!! It took Mom 2 months & very sore hands but the love & persistence paid off & now she can "feel" how much I love her and not just have to wish it. Sounds like your Mom & Dad think you're as special as my Mom & Dad think I am. My Mom talks to me all the time she is home, so I like to talk now, too. I'm starting to same something that sounds like my name "Louuuuuu ieeeeee" Louie! At least, my Mom thinks so. But the bird people said I wouldn't start saying words till I'm 1 yr & I'm only 6 mths old. I guess I'm learning fast with all the attention. I also laugh & whistle. My Mom says I sound just like brother's squeekie toy, his name is Buster a Bichon, he likes to watch me & bark from the patio door that my cage looks out on. I have a sister - Bunny Rabbit, she's a Chihuahua, very cute but I don't interest her. I love to play with Mom on her bed & climb on her back. We watch TV at night together. She gives me all kinds of toys & lets me try all different kinds of treats & fruits & veggies. I really like my peanuts in the shell, really tearing the shells uo more than the nuts. Do you have anymore photos for us to see? Have Mom post some!! Come & look at my new photos every week. I love looking at the camera, it tastes good, too! Visit me & let me know what you're up to!
