Dewey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dewey
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Maroon Bellied Conure
Home: Florida, USA
   Hi, I am Dewey. I am a five-year-old maroon bellied conure. I am quite the little bird. Even though I am very noisy and mimic everything Mama and Daddy do, they still love me.

    I often mimic the washing machine, sneezes, and laughs! The funniest thing I ever did was get my Dad in trouble. You see, I also make guzzling noises whenever anyone takes a sip of soda. When Mama and Dad were still newlyweds, there were some behavioral issues of Dad's that Mama had to break. One of these were Dad's bad habit of drinking out of the two-liter. One day Dad crept into the kitchen, and almost as soon as the refrigerator opened I made loud guzzling noises! Mama immediately knew that Dad did not have time to open the refrigerator, pour a glass, and drink so Mama scolded him. Instead of my usual cheerful morning, "Hi Dewey" or "Dewey's a Bird" or "I love you, Dewey" all I got was "Darn Bird!" I dunno if they've forgiven me yet for that one!
