||Four years old|
||White Bellied Caique|
is Dice, our four-year-old White Bellied Caique. If you've ever owned
a Caique then you know how crazy they are; if you haven't then let me fill
Dice loves to play. All day. Every day. He's a lover of everyone who
comes over, he'll happily sit with anyone and rip up paper towels,
magazine pages, your pants(!), a pencil, you name it - if it's in your
hands he wants a part of it! He says a few phrases: "What's your name?!"
"Whatcha doin'?" "Step up." Good Boy." He tries really hard to say a lot
more, but it comes out in cute little grunts. If you clap your hands and
sing a little tune he loves to dance along, he'll plant his feet and
swing his upper body from side to side, totally enjoying it. He's an
escape artist of sorts, one second he's on his play gym, the next he's
climbing up on a dining room chair, or he's chewing on your big toe.
When he knows you've spotted him he laughs at you. He's really too much,
and we love him!
