Tongo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tongo
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: African Grey Parrot
Home: Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA
   My name is Tongo and that is what I tell anybody who will listen (and some that don't). I am an African Grey Parrot. I live with Ron, my dad, Debbi, my mom and Paul, a ten-year-old human. I know all their names and say them often. I love to play tricks on my humans. I make the sound of phones ringing, microwaves beeping and doors opening. Sometimes, when I make the telephone sound I answer it and hold a conversation, i.e., "Hello..., uh huh, uh huh, yeah... the prettiest bird you ever saw! Uh Huh, okay! Love you, bye." But, there are plenty of times that I just want to play a stupid human trick and make my house noises to see who I can attract. Did I mention I do voices too? I can do Debbi calling Ron and Ron calling the dogs but my personal favorite is Ron reprimanding Paul. When I do this voice, it places me higher up in the pecking order (excuse the pun.) I think it's fun, especially as Paul is just a little older than me an I like to be his boss!
