I saw this t-shirt and I couldn’t resist showing you. Baby Cotton Ball and I are learning and training together. It’s a brand new experience for me since I have only known dogs. I had a beautiful Maltese Sandy for seventeen years. He was my one and only pet. Cotton Ball is a whole new world.
Every day I am learning new little things. Today’s lesson was reading the whistle signals. Like a baby (and he is a baby too) you must know the signs of each request:
- I think more but I’m still a work in progress
Having him away from his cage also has him away from his food. I’m learning that birds, like Cotton Ball eat a lot. He’s been away from his food for over two hours and for the past ten minutes he’s been making chirping noises.
I observed the chirping and wondered what it could be. He looked fine but kept yelping. I looked at the clock and thought about food. So I went to his cage and brought up his food dish.
Once I set it down and looked away (he likes to eat without an audience-that’s funny to me). Solution!!!! He gobbled up and kept eating for several minutes. Now I know the chirping sound for “I’m hungry “.
Every day I’m growing more attached to Cotton Ball and realizing that birds are fun after all. So when I saw this t-shirt I just had to have it. It makes my casual wear cute and still feminine, and I like it!
I had to share it. I’m thrilled!
I still have my Maltese coffee mug. I’ll show you sometime. I miss my Sandy, but he had a great life filled with love, attention, travel etc…
Now it Cotton Ball’s turn to have the love and attention I love to give.
What pets do you have?
How do you train? Any advice on birds?
Off to fetch his water now. Good night!
Until next time…
