||Four years old|
is Grammy, she is a Gloster canary. Grammy is special because she
reminds me of my grandmother. I miss her. One day, we were looking for a
toy for my aunt's dog, and we went in to a pet shop. We heard canaries
singing and my aunt said that my grandmother, who passed away near that
time, loved canaries. I decided to have one in memory of my grandmother.
And there she was: the adorable GRAMMY! The unusual canary with "hair!"
She is very independent, does not like strangers and crowd; but she likes
her name I guess, because when you say her name she starts singing. She
loves sunshine, and always sings in the mornings. She likes classical
music a lot, especially violins, however she hates rap music, I can tell.
She makes her preference quite clear!
When she sleeps, Grammy looks like a fluffy tennis ball! Our vet said she
is a little fat, but I think being skinny is already "out" these days! She
eats a basic mix of canary food with seeds, fruits and vegetables,
including fresh greens. She loves cucumbers and apples a lot!
By the way, she loves to take baths. She gets into her bath tub and washes
herself hopping and singing around. I love to watch her bathing! She is a
great bird and a great friend.
