 Sparky’s family is out of the parrot business.  Parrot #3 (or was it 4) is no more.  The dog ate it.   I laughed, I couldn’t help it.  The bird had free range of the house, and outside.  Our dogs have always loved to catch or stomp birds.  Some have caught birds as they were taking off, while most like to jump on the hapless bird and squish it.  Either way, they flip the bird pancake in the air until Husband ruins the fun by disposing of the bird.

His brothers now have a turtle and an iguana.  I wish them luck.  I met a few families in Santa Cruz who kept tortoises/turtles as outside pets.  We’ve had small tortoises in the backyard before, and the dogs have tried to flip them like toys.   I saw a sidewalk pet-seller with an armadillo.  An armadillo may have a chance in that household.  Joking, joking.
