is Gonzo. I've only had him for a little while, but already he's
made a name for himself in my menagerie of pets. He's playing dead here
(actually fast asleep after snacking on some potato chips) and complains
bitterly if you try and wake him up.
Gonzo is now about sixteen weeks. I've been watching him grow at the pet shop
since he was about seven weeks old and finally after what was almost daily
visits, I brought him home. First thing I did was give him a good bath
and in no time he was like a new bird - clean and excited to meet his
new room mate, Listerine (a ringneck). The two are now best of friends
and are almost inseparable. I'm hoping to teach Gonzo how to talk. He's
already a great 'watch dog' and alerts me to people entering my room
when I'm asleep and squawks loudly at things he has never seen before,
endearing him to the whole family.
