Sunny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sunny
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Cinnamon pearl cockatiel
Home: Lexington, South Carolina, USA
   Sunny (Sunflower) is a sweet ray of sunshine in our lives. We have a parakeet, two cockatiels and a white-capped pionus. Sunny is gentle and loving and usually very quiet. She loves to sit on the window perch and watch our backyard that teems with wildlife.

    Sunny is special because she is so gentle. She enjoys sitting on our shoulders or knees when we watch TV. She likes to ride on our shoulders as we walk around the house. She helps with the housework, too! As I empty the washing machine, I bend over to put the items in the clothes dryer. She carefully walks down my back so she won't fall off. As I stand up again, she walks back up to my shoulder.

    Every morning when my younger son gets ready for school, she accompanies him while he brushes his hair. All in all she is a very happy little bird who enjoys being part of our family. She brightens our day and cheers us up with her love.
