Poncho, the Pet of the Day
Name: Poncho
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
   Hi 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.
