    This is my lovely Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Maggie. She's six, has no tail, but she loves to chase her butt in circles. :biggrin1:

    My two parakeets, Stranger and Fiction. Yes, it was a day of many odd truths for me when I purchased them.



    Post pics of your companions from the Animal Kingdom here and tell us about them!

    Let me guess: Angus is either a Cavalier King Charles or an English Springer Spaniel? He's quite photogenic.

    Blue is beautiful!

    Ok, with a name like Mrs. Johnathan Brisby, there's a story to be told. Do tell!

    I lost my Scottish Terrier "Angus" last year he was 18. My other dog "Lucy" a White West Highland Terrier died two years prior at 16. All my photos are still in the UK bust should be arriving anyday so I will post them when they do.

    We just got two Canaries named Dorothy and Toto - Don't ask!!!

    The hairless rat is cool.

    The Secret of NIMH taken from the book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Frisby was changed to Brisby in the movie.

    Here's Gypsy. Sure she looks cute, but she will rip your throat out first and ask questions later. :smile:

    Aww, this is a great thread....this is my little bundle of love, fur and joy, Buster, an Old English Sheepdog....he has a major fetish for huge cardboard boxes, and he gets a lot of laughs from passers by when they see this huge cardboard box running around and around the garden in circles (he flips it over his back so you just see a hint of paws).

    If you say 'on your marks...get set...'...you'll always receive a 'woof-woof!!'...and he will shake hands (paws) if you ask him nicely....though don't rustle anything...he'll be there in a flash...greedy bugger! We love him...a lot.

    He's a big ham of an English Springer Spaniel MB. Good guess.

    Perfectly awful.

    There's nothing more difficult. I've mourned my pets often more than lost relatives...

    Heather...my granny had a yellow fronted amazonian parrot called wally....he was hilarious....we used to go round to grannys when we were kids (we lived in the same country village...and gran used to be doing the washing in one of these old huge twin tub upstanding washing machines (remember those?)...she would be listening to her opera...and Wally would be sitting on top of this shuddering vibrating machine singing along at the top of his voice with Gran...'LA LAA LA LA..LA LAAA LA LA!!!'

    He also used to speak a lot...there was 'hello wally'....'fly wally fly'...'ROLLOCKS!!'....'goodie goodie goodie'....also, I must have been notorious as he would say 'MUM! Edward's in the kitchen!!' or...'Edward is a NAUGHTY boy!' lol!!!

    Funniest thing was when we had our first old english sheepdog when we were kids...he was a real character, we called him Wordsworth and 'worzel' sometimes for short...anyway when we first had Wordsworth, he got a lot of attention of course, and when we were at Grannys, Wally used to hiss at him brazenly, and wordsworth would go running off terrified. Then, one summers day, Gran took the parrot out into the garden, suddenly we heard the Parrot call 'WOOORRDDSWORRTH!'...the dog went running over and hey presto, a huge yelp...the parrot took a fine bite out of wordsworth's nose!

    Amazing their capacity to learn or mimic human speech...I was just wondering....does Blue talk?? Please let us know!

    My Blue loves opera! It's her favorite music. She likes to sit outside in the tree by the pool and screeeeeeeeeeam and scream. I'm sure the neighbors think we beat each other. lol She doesn't talk much now, but I'm told that macaws don't talk much until they're at least 30 and they live much longer than that, at least to 70-80. She's only eight years old.

    Her favorite word is "Heather" and she screams it repeatedly, all variations of it. Here's a video of her dancing to Lords of Acid by the pool.

    cute pets, you guys! :)

    HAHA!!! I love it!!! That is the cutest!! And Wally made it to around 60 so I am told....though we weren't exactly sure....was also wondering...about the bites...when a parrot bites it can be really vicious, and Wally was know for taking the odd chunk out of an ear!! He took to me well though, and would let me 'scratch his poll' and he would sit on my shoulder...and poop on it! quite contentedly...I never received a bite (thank my stars!!)....How is Blue with people...and how does he take to strangers??? And again, thanks for that video link..it's quite fabuloso!! lol!!!
