He is lovely I'm glad all is well.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Sakty was so cute this afternoon. He was hanging out on my shoulder, and started talking in his quiet indoor voice, saying "Hello", and "You're a good boy" and "Pretty Bird" and even some singing. So cute and not captureable on video, because he will stop as soon as he sees a camera orcell phone up close.

We took him out to dinner with us, to a place that has a outdoor beer garden, last night. Well evening lets say, cuz the sun was still out. He was so well behaved, eating the tortilla chips from the nacho plate. Totally ignored his harness, which is how it should be. He shook hands a few times with curious folks ( As I held my breath, waiting for the first sign of a nip or bite coming), and even laughed on command for some. He is a real oven roaster ham.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Oh, Salty is so very dear to our hearts, mine in particular. How can I not love a creature that says "Hello Daddy" and "How ya doing?" every night when I come home, snuggles and asks for scratchies and skritches, works so very hard every night to please us during his training sessions? He fills a great deal of holes in this house. I honestly could not fathom a better parrot companion for Geri and I.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

I just love staying "connected" to the people here and reading about their great relationships with their fids. I might "go quiet" at times, but I always stay in touch by reading and learning in the background. It really teaches me so much and provides so much encouragement to always look for bigger and better ways to enrich the lives of my there girls! Thank you for sharing!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Friday, Geri had a Dr.appointment and it was beautiful out so I harnessed up Salty and took him with us to the office. He puts it on so unflinchingly, working with him with the harness every single night ( for the past 3-1/2 years) has really paid off. We waited outside, on the back lawn of the Dr's office, playing around. When Geri was done, I took them both out to dinner at a local pub that has a outdoor beer garden, where Salty got a salt free crasker ( mehhh) and a bit of white meat chicken ( yummy). He's so good in the harness, suffering fools gladly, when they ask questions like " Is that a parrot?". I on th otherhand do not suffer them so gladly, answering "No its a green cat", or "Parrot, what parrot???".

We have company this weekend, so I had to skip his nightly training session Thurs and Fri. But come tonight, boy, does Salty dive into our training sessions! Running, absolutely running mind you, from trik to trick, and doing the ones he likes, like rolling over, or flipping the hoops over his head, just for the sheer fun of doing them.

Tomorrow, is CHOP day, we have to make up a few months of chop for Salty, think I will make a spicy recipe for him, he does like his Ghost peppers and habeneros. Last time I made this kind,we cleaned the Stop and SHopout of almost all the peppers they had. The checkout girl raised an eyebrow when she rang them up.
