Dicky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dicky
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parakeet
Home: Canada
   Dicky is a blue parakeet that we got on January 14th. He is smaller than most. Dicky is very spoiled, he has a lot of toys he plays with every day. His favorite toys include his stick (long skinny branch from a tree) and his 'egg' (round candy mint) which he stole from the candy jar! He loves mirrors and hanging ropes. He continuously likes to throw anything that is in his way off onto the floor and then he'll look down and watch where it falls. It's extremely cute!

    If you are busy trying to write something, he'll come and jump on the end of your pen as you write. He is let free out of his cage from early morning all the way up to around 10pm and can fly where he pleases but usually is always with someone either on their head or shoulder. He even knows when it's supper time and will fly straight to his cage for a little something to eat and a short nap. Dicky can also talk. He learned very quickly and picks up new words weekly that he hears people say. His favorite words he says everyday are Dicky, Dicky boy, what are ya doin', doo-dee-doo-dee-doo-dee, bad boy & pretty boy. Just recently we heard his new word 'I have no idea.'

    He also whistles a small tune we taught him, he comes when he's called, and when he gets in trouble he knows it... he gets excited and flaps his wings real fast, bobs his head up and down and whistles. It's hard not to give in to his total cuteness! He also loves bath time. He flies to the kitchen sink and ducks his head under the faucet waiting for someone to turn it on. Dicky surprises us daily with his new words, hilarious actions and extreme hyper-ness towards the smallest things. He is one very happy boy! He's extremely special to our family.
