Charlie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Charlie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Timneh African Grey
Home: Red Wing, Minnesota, USA
 
   Charlie was given to me by an elderly woman who could no longer care for him, and I was honored to be chosen as his new caregiver. Charlie is smart and funny and he loves to be in the middle of everything that's going on in our family. He has a large vocabulary, including mimicking the microwave beep, and he can sing "Happy Birthday to You." Every morning he says, "Good morning!" and every night he says, "Good night, sweetheart, I'll see you in the morning." He fools the dog by imitating a knock at the door and shouting, "Who's there?" so that the dog runs to the door barking, and then Charlie laughs. He loves to snuggle and get head scritches, or just see what I'm doing. He even walks down the hallway to find me when I'm doing the laundry! But mostly Charlie is special just because I love him so much.
