is a very special pet. He has a very large vocabulary, of
about 250 words. He is very intelligent and fun to be around.
Commadore laughs, especially at kids, meows at cats, and barks at
dogs. He also sings the musical scale...Do Re Me.... Commadore also
loves to play dead. I lay him in my hand, and I say bang, while using
my finger as a gun, and he throws his head back. It's very funny.
Commadore also does educational programs with me, that I do for
schools. He does a great job of keeping the kids attention.
Commadore has been with us for 30 years. I was 10 when my dad bought
him. We expect him to live to be 50 to 60. I do get a lot of
requests for people to touch him... especially kids. I allow it only
while I hold his beak. Commadore entertains as well as teaches. He
shows kids that pets are more than a possession. He talks to them,
laughs with them, and usually by the time we leave, they all say
goodbye, and hopefully have a new found respect for their pets they
have at home.
