Max, the Pet of the Day
Name: Max
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lilac Crowned Amazon
Home: Jacksonville, Florida, USA
   We got Max from a friend who was unable to spend enough time with him. We've had him for about a year and a half now. He has a decent vocabulary, he can say "hi", "hello", "good boy", "bad boy", "I'm a duck, quack quack", "bok, bok, bok, bok, chicken" among others. He loves his mommy more than anyone. She's the one that has taught him most of what he says, and she's the one who's voice Max copies. He loves to spend time outside of his cage, checking everything out. He tries to stay on his cage, if he tries to jump off, he normally lands on his sister's cage. His sister is a peachface lovebird, Dipsy, who loves to bite Max's toes when he's on her cage.

    Max loves to watch mommy vacuum, and makes it obvious by going "OOOOH!" He also screams a lot if he doesn't get every bit of mommy's attention. He's a good boy. His latest thing to say is "I love you boogerhead" and to call his newly adopted brother, a lab-chow mix named Bruno. Max can whine just like Bruno and has barking matches with him.
