Carlino, the Pet of the Day
Name: Carlino
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Mynah Bird
Home: Bayonne, New Jersey, USA
   Hi - this is Carlino, he is a Great Indian Hill Mynah Bird. He is co-owned by myself and my pal Josephine (although as the rest of her family sees it, the bird belongs to them). So let us just say he is well loved.

    Carlino is special because he flew all the way to New Jersey from an aviary in Florida, he's already got frequent flier miles! (Okay, he did fly on an airplane.) What makes him really special is the many dollars I shelled out for him! No really, what makes him special is that he has very good Mynah skills and can already imitate a dog barking, and a car horn honking! He says "I love you Carlino", and "Hello," "What are you doing?" and "You Happy?" And he's still a baby at nine months old, so we expect his vocabulary will increase by leaps and bounds as the years go on! Carlino has an older cousin Giorgio who also resides in Bayonne.

    Per Carlino's Mommy: He's very affectionate and loves to be kissed. He always says "I love you." He loves to sit on the couch with me - his mommy - every night and watch TV. He plays catch and throws and runs after the ball on his own!
