||Six years old|
||Ottawa, Ontario, Canada|
there, I would like to introduce to you my very special pet Poncho. Poncho
is a six-year-old Quaker (soon to be seven in May), and for a little bird he is a
big part of our family. Poncho's vocabulary consists of 50 words and 42
phrases/sentences, he is a smarty pants for sure. He is amazing in so many
ways but the joy he brings to us every morning with his wonderful "Good
Mornin - Good Mornin" song is something very special.
Poncho is a little bird with a big personality, I truly believe he thinks
he's human! As I said Poncho is an amazing talker and knows all of us by
name, including our two cats Toulouse and Cherie. If Poncho is feeling lonely
he will call out to us, and when we come into the room, he will instantly
start: "Oh well hi there, how are you, are you ok, do you want to take a
bath, do you want to go outside." Poncho loves to cuddle with us and watch
t.v. his favorite shows seem to be comedy (he will laugh... hahahah
funny, funny) he also enjoys a good hockey game, he gets pretty excited when
a goal is scored, although he does not have a favorite team. Our family
has always been pet lovers but we never imagined how this little bird would
change our lives. "How," you say, "can a bird possibly change one's life?"
Well if the day ever comes when your cat or dog looks at you and says "I love You" out loud, you will understand.
