Azi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Azi
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parakeet
Home: Virginia, USA
   Azi is a little charmer who loves attention. He chatters all day long and loves competing with the TV and water faucet to see who's louder. When he wants attention he'll roll himself onto his back, hang on tight and call out for belly rubs.

    Azi was a Christmas gift from my husband. I had my choice of any breed of bird and was looking for a handfed baby. I saw this little blue budgie in a large chain pet shop and fell in love. When I got close to him and put my fingers out, he came towards me and licked the inside of the glass cage while all the other budgies panicked and flew away. I just knew I could train him and give him the fun, loving kind of home he needed. What money my husband saved buying me this little peanut was used to get his great big cage and lots of toys.

    Within a week he learned to jump up, perch on my shoulder, eat from my hands and preen my hair. He loves being out of his cage and playing with us. One afternoon while we worked in our upstairs office, we found Azi walking aimlessly around the hall. He had escaped from his cage, flew to the floor, and climbed the staircase to join us. He's brought us lotsa joy, makes us laugh, and we love him so!
