Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: St. Albans, West Virginia, USA
   My name is Princess Buddy Allen - but they call me Buddy. I was named Buddy Boy Allen until surprise - last spring I laid three eggs. Mom quickly called the Vet and told them to change my name to get this, Princess Buddy Allen! Poleeeasssse - anything would have been better then that! My favorite sport is soccer and I play it all the time. I am a very unique Quaker as you can see, I have no neck and my feet turn in. Mom says that is because I am special, but the other birds here at the inn say it is 'cause someone ran over me with a steam roller while I was still in the egg. They all think they are comedians, we know better.

    Doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, because the humans here all want to pick me up all the time. I tell them "later, please" but they don't listen, so I bite them, if that doesn't work I bite harder and well that usually works. Except with this mom person, she has some kind of God complex and will not let a bird get the better of her. One of these days one of these days! But she is mom, so I do put up with her. Except for that "Princess" bit - I haven't forgiven her for that yet!
