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.
