We adopted our pet cocktail, Derby four years ago today. We’ve been at least his third owner and we don’t know how old he is, but we think he was probably about 2 when we got him. He used to be a lot meaner when we got him, but he’s really warmed up to us over time. Right now, as I type this, he’s sitting on my shoulder preening.
I remember when Patricia told me we were going to get him. I admit, I was a little freaked out because I’ve never known someone to have a bird. But it’s been cool having him. It’s really cool when he starts singing like he did this morning.
Happy Adoption Day, Derby! This time, your last adoption!
