Georgie Girl, the Pet of the Day
Name: Georgie Girl
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Yellow-nape Amazon Parrot
Home: McAllen, Texas, USA
 
   Let me introduce you to my Georgie Girl (nickname GG). She's a large female, ten years old and a big part of our lives. I bought her two years ago this month and my life has not been the same since. Her previous owner is Amy Ellis sold her because she felt that GG was not receive the attention she needed. Amy was not kidding. When I am gone more than one night she will not talk, sing, whistles or laugh for a few hours. She'll face the wall while sitting on top of the cage or tree stand.

    GG talks, sings, whistles and laughs. She says (in her sexy voice) "Hi!! How are you? GRRRRR!!!". GG says "What's up!!!!!" then again in a different tone "Whaaaat's Uppppp!". In the morning when she see you she says "Well, Good Morning!! It's time to get up!! Get up!!". She'll ask my friends (and Ernie and Molly, our shih-tzus) "Do you need to go potty!?!. Come on let's go potty!!". When you walk back in the house (with or without Ernie and Molly), she'll ask you "Did you go potty!?! Are you a good girl!?!". She seem to think that everyone should go outside to potty.

    When I cleaning the house or her cage, she says "You're a good girl!!" or "You're a pretty bird!!" or "Georgie's a goooooood bird!".

    Her favorite word is "Whatever!!" If we're talking either on the phone or in person, she's saying "Hmm!! Hmm!! For Real!?!" or "And (then)" during your whole conversation.

    GG sings "Who Let The Dogs Out" (including the bark); "Jesus Loves Me," and "Hey There!! Georgie Girl." When she hears music she'll start singing at the top of her lungs and I don't think she knows what's she's singing. Or maybe she does.

    Georgie Girl knows when it's time to eat she's going to get served and she'll start saying "HMMMM!! HMMM!! Georgie a good girl!"

    Georgie Girl has brought us pure joy and we have been blessed to have her in our family these past two years. We hope to have her for the next 30 to 40 years as parrots have a life expectancy of 20 to 50 years. We're looking forward to getting GG a cage mate this summer. Oh Boy!! We can not wait to see what she teaches him.
