Tuffy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tuffy
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Peach-faced Lovebird
Home: Tennessee, USA
   My name is Tuffy, cause I'm tough as nails. I love Mommy, and Daddy, too, when he lets me sit on his shoulder while he fools with the computer. I stay in a cage all day, listening to birdcalls. I get one hour's freedom each day, and have the run of the place. Then, it's bedtime - back to my cage. Cage covered. Undisturbed, blissful sleep. It's heavenly, because I am tired. I actually beg to be put to bed. Sometimes, I dream I'm whipping a cat.

    Mommy takes such good care of me. She's a pet lover if there ever was one. She says I'm her favorite. I hope so. All the others are in the pet cemetery in the back yard. Cheep! That's bird talk for giggle.

    I have so many toys - a dump truck, a school bus, a little red wagon, and if I named them all I would sound snotty. I have a 'Jungle Gym' so I can perch and watch the squirrels and some of my outside bird buddies. The hummingbirds love to tease me. They're just jealous of my nice home, though.
