Mom's grandma used to own me when I was very young, but she didn't breathe very well and all my dust bothered her, so mom gave me a new great home..

Hi! My name is Spike

I am a Cockatiel from Walkerton, IN.

Spikey, Spike-a-bird, Winged Spawn of Satan (when I dive-bomb mom)

21 years old   M

Cockatiel

I like all my toys and I love broccoli, mac and cheese and peanut butter.

I like to hang out on top of my cage and on mom's shoulder because she wears SHINY silver earrings!!

ANYONE touching my g/f.(I know it's only a mirror, but I like her) and mom making me go back in my cage!!

She lets me play on her shoulder and she sings to me!!

I LOVE to dive at mom after her shower when her head is wet!! I wolf whistle and can also whistle *Andy Griffith* and *The Addams Family* themes. I also mock mom when she calls the dog..

Hey, Spike. Just wanted you to know that I still think of you and come by every so often so see if there are any signs of activity on your page; say, maybe a photo of that little puppy who surely is no longer a little puppy but a great big DOG! Hope you're doing good yourself. Know that you're missed. G <")

Ah Man, thanks for coming by and sayin' Hi! Please tell your mom there's no need to be sorry about not getting to the BC as often... I completely understand. I go for long stretches sometimes myself 'cause mom just gets so busy with other (less) important things. I'm just glad to know you're fine and that life is good. Thanks for lettin' me know. Sounds like that puppy's growing! Wishin' you a good week... G <")

There's a new baby 'tiel here that snuck it's way into the flock... mom thought she replaced all the eggs with fake one but guess not! That or my parents are just really good at keeping eggs warm, so much so that they can make fake ones turn into baby 'tiels too! Here's to you... G <")

  Morning!
Life at your place sounds exciting. Between the girlfriend, Hope and the pooches there's bound to be something amusing going on. I've got me a beagle dog here too! Well, she's part beagle anyway. Bays like one, that's for sure. Think she might have a little Labrador mixed in. Nice dog. Follows me around with her nose right on my tail when I happen to wander into the kitchen or she manages to get into my room. I don't have to worry about her bothering me... she only shows up if mom shows up...she follows my mom everywhere! So if the dog shows up I know mom will be close by too. Heather would be a chub-O too if her food intact wasn't controlled. All that dog thinks about is eating!! Trash cans have had to be put into cupboards because of that dog's incessant quest for a morsel of food! And I though I was bad, always peckin' around for a missed seed or crumb of bread. I'll bet that dog DREAMS about food!! Sure different from the Rat Terrier that also lives her. She rarely thinks about food. All she wants to do is run from room to room, bounce toys off the walls so they'll roll, hand on the beagle dog's ears, anything that involves moving!! Funny how we're all different, huh. Glad that little furball's plan of sneaking up on you didn't work out... thank goodness for Moms who keep an eye out for our safety. That's why I'm not too afraid of any of our dogs... I know mom's watching over me! Thanks for the banana. I'm leavin' you an apple slice. /) G <")

  Greetings from Grover!
Spike! How's it going? And your girlfriend, the one in the mirror—she lookin' as good as ever? Something tells me she is. Are all the family plans still the same... That human sister still staying closer to home? Hope so, for your mom and your sake. And how about that tiny little fur-sister that's joined the family? How's that cute little thing doing? Keepin' everyone busy, huh! Yea, those darlings have a knack with that. We got a puppy about a year ago. It came with an ample supply of energy. She wore the older dog out with all the bouncing and barking and ear pulling! When the beagle mutt would crash for a nap Sasha would keep right on playing... right on top of the sleeping dog!! Thank goodness that puppy used up some of its energy... she's not AS wound up anymore... Then again, she's a Rat Terrier and they don't seem to slow down much till they're about 63 dog years old!! I tried Puppy Chow once 'cause I just walked right up to the dish and helped myself. It tasted pretty good. Here's a piece if you'd like to try it. Then again, you probably have a fresh supply at your house this very moment. I'll share one anyway... [] G <")

  Mmmmm...
...love that raisin toast!! Thanks for sharing. Shooo-wee... that was a close one about your human sis moving SO far away. I can understand why your mom was sad. Even with wings 900 miles is a long distance to travel. I was hopin' there might be a picture of your new fur-sister here on your page! I'd love to see your tiny black furball! Bet it's just adorable. The dogs at my house are generally the ones to do the waking up around here. They think they've got to go outside and check to see if any wild rabbits or raccoons have strolled through THEIR yard in the night. Mom sometimes carries the crazy beagle past our room in hopes that we won't be disturbed but fat chance of that... we hear everything!! Any sound is reason enough for us to commence to singing and chirping for the day! Hey, it's good to be alive! Leaving you a slice of banana (:.) before heading off to meet Hope. G <")

  Happy Valentine's Day, Spike!
You've made my Valentine's Day, let me tell ya, by saying M or F, I'm your friend!! I acutually missed your note and just happened to catch it when checking to make sure I was visiting all my new friends on this Holiday of Love. Imagine my glee when I discovered your note! °v° Your description of the Mocking Dog Call was well versed; I believe I could nearly hear it in my head! I really enjoyed that raisin bread with peanut butter on it! That was tasty!! I've suggested raisin bread be permanently added to the grocery list. After all these wonderful treats I'm going to have to add Exercise Routine to MY day. I'm getting less of it now that I'm involved in guarding and warming a couple of eggs (the clue that inspired the name change...I'm NOT the one that laid those eggs but I am the one that does whatever the woman tells me need doing! That makes me a guy for sure!) Leavin' ya with some seeds .‰° ...&aV2! G <")

  Uhhhh...
This is embarrassing but, well, as you can see from my signiture, some changes have been made. Now, this is not news to ME 'cause of course I've known it all along. Maybe... maturity sneaks up on you rather quickly sometimes, I hear. In this case it snuck up on Mom... imagine her surprise when I gave her reason to believe my name should be Grover instead of Gail! In all honesty my name WAS Grover at one time. Someone remarked once that my markings hinted that I might be a girl so when my page here on the BC was created it was decided that I would have a girl's name... Well, that lasted for about a week. I apologize for any confusion this might be creating but I'm hoping that this surprise news won't interfere in our developing friendship! Now that I've got that embarrassing confession over with let's get on with the chit-chat! So, tell me, if you would, just how do you 'mock' your mom when she calls the dog? I can only imagine! Ain't it fun to be a bird!! Later then...I hope. G <") (At least my initial didn't change!)

  So...
...Did you try it again, that sneaking into mom and dad's room and getting to stay up a little longer? What I have to ask is, did you open the door of your cage? or do you not even stay in a cage? The other day the African Grey that also lives here was marching around on top of my flight cage, pull and picking on everything she could get her noisy little beak on. Unknown to mom Kelly opened the little side door and let me and my little brother out!! We were so excited 'cause the rest of the flock couldn't figure out how we got out; they were pitchin' a big ol squawking fit, pacing back and forth in front of the regular door. For once I was glad to have that pesky Grey on my cage! Hey, thanks for the {*}. It was tasty! I'm leaving a piece of shredded wheat for you— #. And a vote too! Later! G <")

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I think you are so creative, Spike. I just love all the little food treats I see you 'sharing' all around the BC! Now, whenever I see a note from you to some birdie I always look to see what treat you've shared with them! What a nice guy you are. I got an ear of dried corn to play with today. The kernels are done picked off already and now I'm just busy droppin' the kernels on the floor for the dogs! What a mess I'm makin'! It's been a fun activity.

thanks on the compliment of my colors. Mom already had Chi chi and she is green but didnt want another female bird so picked a male and we males are all green...the females are very pretty in purple and red. Under my wings is a very pretty red and when I spread them it is like the sun rising in the morning....well maybe not that great LOL. On the edges of my wings are red,orange and almost turqoise blue. Here is a vote from us and come visit us anytime and I never get embarrassed LOL. Cheech to you later.

Stopping by to give you a vote and say hi. We have two grouund hogs on long island. We had a split decision. The more famous of the two said that we weren't going to have 6 more weeks of winter. The one from Suffolk County agreed with the Ground Hog from Pa and said there would be 6 more weeks of winter. I'm so confused. I guess we will find out who is right soon enough :-) Definitely, no snow here though.
