Beautiful bird, and such sweet, funny personality. Big parrots worry me a little, lol, but I think Cody would be a lot less intimidating ;)

Thanks for the laughter :)

Looks like that bird needs a lot of attention. You could see the owner wishing it would get tired of it.

I guess birds like Cody are clever, but only to equal a two year old toddler.

I thought that as well... clearly a very intelligent fella, in need of a lot of intellectual stimulus.

As much as I enjoyed the video, I couldn’t help thinking he might be a good deal happier, and her too, lol, if she got up and walked around with him while she did work around the house. Treating him more like a kid, telling him names of things and such.

And wearing a more substantial shirt to hold up against his claws lol!

Still, my overall thoughts are of what a beautiful, amazing creature he is, and how blessed we are to share our lives with so many kinds of them.

I’d love to get a pet bird, but I am afraid of that bird flu thing...

Does anyone know about it?

I am thinking the bird flu thing is not 35 years old... it’s just been reported in the last 8-10 years I think.

My sister and her family own a psycho cockatoo. Years ago it picked the feathers on its chest and stomach clean so that for 20 years it has looked like a cornish game hen.

Pet birds aren’t the problem . I’ve never heard of a case involving a pet.

I have 2 pet birds myself.

She should probably get a cat.

My daughter has a mixed breed rescue she got when she got the humanitarian do-gooder syndrome. He’s a nice dog and he deserved saving, but he is the neediest, whiny dog I’ve ever seen. He cannot be away from her for more than 5 minutes.

Wow...It's hit or miss when you don't raise them yourself.

My buddy and his wife got a rescued "toy" dog. This one had to have been surrendered by someone very loving who could not care for her any more.

It is so magnificently trained it almost takes care of itself. If they miss a scheduled event the dog will react almost "patiently" while waiting for said event. It's like a " Stepford lapdog" - LOL!

Yes, I don’t know why - he’s always been located close to family activity and is well cared for.

My mother had a little toy poodle mix that was like that.

Spent a lot of time with my dad before he died...she kept that dog for years afterwards until it died. Probably about as best trained personal companion as you could have.

But in the end, the temperament and makeup of any dog is luck of the draw. They’re why people take a chance on strange dogs.

A couple that are my boat neighbors have 2 rescued Schnauzers. Neediest dogs I have ever seen. They can’t be left alone for 30 seconds without starting to howl like they are dieing. The couple actually did it to them by treating them like children.
Recently they had to go to emergency room and called and asked if I would pick up the dogs. I did. Walked them and took them back to the boat and left them. Every time they would start howling I would go over and scold them. Eventually they quieted down for good.
When the couple got back I said....you know these dogs are worse than babies. At least babies can be left alone while sleeping.
I wouldn’t have a dog that couldn’t be left alone. We leave ours home all the time and she sleeps until she hears the beep from the alarm being turned off and meets us at the back door.

My daughter has a magnificently beautiful mocha and chocolate purebred Doberman that I’m trying to get her to give me so she can concentrate on Bowser all the time.

Kingston, the Dobie is absolutely stunning as one would expect and he likes me. I even made him a spike/leather collar using Latigo leather and silver buckle that complements his coat quite nicely.

Brought him home one weekend while they were off somewhere. He was apprehensive about jumping up to the truck seat, but after we got going, he just sat there beside me straight up watching everything like he was born to it. He liked it.

Only problem is my oldest grand daughter doesn’t want to give him up because he sleeps with her at night.
