I had lovebirds when I was younger and had decided I wanted a lovebird again. I went to the local pet store and there Pip was at the back of her cage, shyly and quietly watching me. Every time I turned to look at something else I heard a demanding little chirp telling me to come back. That was my first glimpse of her dual personality: shy, sometimes timid little bird who quietly watches things, becomes frightened at odd noises, and hides behind her toys quickly transforms into the bold little bird who's yelling out challenges to birds outside, taking on every new toy first, and out-shouting everything, whether it be t.v., the other birds or just adding her opinion to a quiet discussion..

Hi! My name is Pip

I am a Peach-Faced Lovebird from Prairie du Chien, WI.

Pip-pip, Sweetie, Pipper Shredder, Troublemaker, Insomniac

7 years old   F

Peach-Faced Lovebird

Tortilla strips, baby carrots, sunflower seeds

The big playstand. It is mine, the others can not have it. I'm working on taking over the little playstands, but that's gonna take awhile.

When Mommy undoes my hard work by giving me clean water. That's ok though, I take a bath, toss some food and shredded paper in and it's back to good.

She gives me paper to shred and carrots to eat and she tries to figure out what I'm thinking when I'm having a timid day.

Pip loves shredding paper that I stick through the bars of her cage, she'll even hang upside down if I stick it through the top of her cage. She neatly shreds off even little strips and tucks them into the feathers on her back. Pip also practices stealth bathing. One second, totally dry bird. Look over a few seconds later and Pip's soaking wet and no splashing sounds or anything. She's recently taken to competing with my maroon-bellied conure Gabriel..

Anything Gabe can do I can do better!.

Just a quick fly by to say Good Morning and to kick the vote off of your page HE HE HE. It was a nice quite restful weekend with not much going on. Update on dad is that he will be going from 3 lap, 3x/day around the parking lot to 4 lap 3x/day today (all most a 1/4 mile). He is off his pain meds. He went shopping with mom yesterday at Costco for his morning walk, boy was he tried went he got home. This morning he woke up in a different position than when he went to sleep last night and he left the bedroom door open so that the furballs could come and go as they pleased.

  HELLO all our friends. We finally bugged Momma enough that she had to type our blog for us. Momma has been busy revamping the "Love Shack". We are getting more hanging play areas and a new fountain and even bird safe trees. Momma says its because she wants us birdies to live in more of a natural surrounding. Hey, what Momma wants...Momma gets...us birdies too. Not much going on here in the Great White North. At last Autumna and Holiday are free to fly again. The Cockatiel's eggs did not hatch so Momma said that it was safe for us to come out and play. Autumn was sooo excited that he chewed several holes in Momma's shirt today as she was working in our room. Its better he chews an old shirt than the wood work... The weather is warming up outside. We have had rain for the last two day. All our snow is gone now. All we see out the window is dirty property. Momma says soon everything will be nice and green. Perhaps we can get outside to enjoy all that warm sunshine. Polly and Little Man are doing rather well. Soon they will be moving in together and then coming to join the rest of us birdies in the Love Shack. Soon we won't have to scream back and forth to one another. Henry the Cockatoo is doing great. He was upstairs yesterday to visit all us birdies. He is sooo much bigger than the rest of the flock. He was sooo happy to see other birdies that he bounced up and down on Momma's shoulder as he called out to everyone. Momma says that Henry will not be joining us in the Love Shack because he is to big for us smaller birdies. He can only come and visit when Momma brings him in. Well the good thing about that is that we won't have to share our toys with him...hehehe Momma is going to add pictures of our aviary so everyone can see what a wonderful room we have. She hopes that others might get some ideas to help other birdies enjoy their play time. Well our friends it time to go. Momma has to feed feathers and skin kids alike. Have a wonderful evening. Vote for all. Birdie hugs and kisses from The Great White North Gang.

Come visit me, Babygirl, Holiday & Autumn.

  }·> It a Sad Morning
It is a sad day for my flockily today. Our Boxer, Guinan, left us for the Rainbow Bridge this afternoon. Guinan would have been 11 years old, had she lived to her next birthday on July 4. We will all miss her terribly, but especially Mom and Dad. Guinan was Mom’s 40th birthday gift to Dad. ~~ About 6 weeks ago, Guinan was diagnosed with a brain tumor. And after giving medication a chance to work to allow her to be symptom free, it became obvious that she was losing ground. Today, Mom and Dad talked to Guinan’s Dr. Tom, and the three of them decided that the tumor was growing much too fast for them to be able to give her any more good quality time with us. So we said our goodbyes, and made sure that our Rosalie Hale Bopp would be at the gates to the Rainbow Bridge, just this side of heaven, to greet Guinan and introduce her to the flockily she will be spending time with until all of us are together again. ~~ Please join me, Mom, Dad, my fiblings, and our kitties in a prayer for Guinan’s safe jouney to The Bridge, and for peace and comfort for those of us who remain behind. May we give and rely on each other’s strength in our sorrow, You can see her picture at the bottom of the my page. Your Good Friend }·> TidBit
