Sweetpea, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sweetpea
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parakeet
Home: Sanford, North Carolina, USA
   This is Sweetpea. He's a parakeet, also know as a budgie.

    Sweetpea is very special! He loves to sing and make lots of noise! Sometimes if you listen closely you'll hear him say "silly little bird"! He loves white things, like tissue paper or paper towels! He really enjoys eating millet! Sweetpea has a very mean disposition sometimes! He does not like to be messed with in any way when he is in his cage, as he is very territorial! Don't put your fingers anywhere around his cage!

    And when you let him out, watch out, he's a dive bombing bird! He loves flying around and dive-bombing right near you - but not so close that you could actually catch him! He loves hair too! He hides behind my hair, he'll get behind me and work his way under my hair! Then he'll sit there and make funny little noises until I make him move! I love my bird!
