Isabelle, the Pet of the Day
Name: Isabelle
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hahns Macaw
Home: Texas, USA
   This little girl is Isabelle. She is a seven month old Hahns Macaw also known as a "red-shouldered Macaw." She has not been DNA-sexed, but for naming purposes we call her a girl. I got her when she was just three months old, and she's been a joy to have in my life ever since.

    She loves to play with our dog, a six-pound Pomeranian. She gives the dog, Sammie, big kisses, and Sammie tries to lick Isabelle's beak. Isabelle calls Sammie into the room during dinner time and waits for her to walk under the cage, and then she proceeds to share her food with the dog. The dog enjoys it, but I don't enjoy cleaning up the mess it causes!

    She's a very bright and intelligent bird. She loves to talk, jabber, play with her toys, and cuddle! She's developing a pretty large vocabulary, with her favorite words being "Mom" and "Step up"... she also loves to mimic our Pomeranian's barking! She gets pretty upset when "Mom" leaves the room without her... but otherwise she is a very good bird. I wouldn't trade her for anything!
