The first one I took is of the little dog that belongs to the owner. The dog's name is...Ripper - and what a darling pup he is.
Then I was invited by one of the staff to see the parrots. Well that was interesting. I love birds and don't necessarily approve of them being kept in cages, but then what do I know, right?
Anyway, I met four beautiful birds.
The white one is Candy... I would ask "Are you a pretty bird Candy?" And she would raise her crest and fluff herself up... as you can see she figured she was very pretty.
Then there is ZaZoo - an African Grey - who wasn't particularly conversational, and JayJay - a large turquoise and yellow beauty. The most fun of all was after I'd taken many photos - of fish, snakes, baby dragon lizards, and guinea pigs.
What was fun was dancing and laughing with the parrots - I went back to look at them again, and asked if they danced, bobbing my head up and down... Jay Jay joined in the fun and bobbed and weaved... when I laughed Candy broke out into a cackle that was pretty close to an imitation of my own - which of course made me laugh harder. All the birds were interested and interesting. I learned how friendly and intelligent they are. And here's the rest of the gang - enjoy your day - I certainly did and will today as well.

Okay - enough! I will post the photos of the snakes and lizards tomorrow - so those of you who dislike those critters won't have to see or read the blog. I was told I could name the fuzzy black guinea pig - and if I didn't think the dogs would her I'd bring her home - she is so adorable - I'm going to call her Chocolate.
Have a super day... it's like summer outside here today, it won't last long so I'm off to the garden!
