Ripken, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ripken
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Nanday Conure
Home: Clearwater, Florida, USA
   This is Ripken, a Nanday Conure.  He's about five years old.  This is a favorite photo of ours because we caught him in mid-wave to us.  Ripken has all sorts of talking tricks. If you make a kissing sound he'll say "give me a kiss." If you ask what does Jackie (our dog) say, Ripken will say "bow-wow-wow-wow." Ripken has not quite taken to my wife, but he absolutely loves me and follows me around the ground.
