SweetPepper, the Pet of the Day
Name: SweetPepper
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: Joliet, Illinois, USA
   Pepper is the sweetest, most cuddly Senegal. She is my angel. SweetPepper my Senegal fits her name perfectly, she is very sweet. She is special because she chose me to come home with. I had been researching different birds and found that a Senegal would be the perfect bird for me. She would be a bigger parrot but not too big, a perfect size and not too noisy. I went to our local bird fair for food for my tiels when I came across this cute Senegal. I got to talking to the breeder and found she lived close to me. Pepper got right onto my hand and started to snuggle in. She let me pet her all over. When it was time to leave and hand her back, Pepper refused to go back to the breeder. The breeder told me she would not have anything to do with any of the other people who came by. I had to talk it over with my folks as it would be adding a third bird to the house. They said yes and I made arrangements to pick up Pepper. She came home on July 3rd, 2003 at the age of five months. She is now four years old and an absolute snugglebug who loves to do somersaults. Pepper does talk and has a limited vocabulary but her favorite word to say in so many different ways is "BABY". She has other words also, but baby is her favorite. I didn't buy a bird to talk, it's just an added bonus. Having been chosen by my SweetPepper as her "parront" is what makes her special to me.
