Our new pet

Ok, ok...I know, we already have a zoo here. But Logan has been very sad that he doesn't have his "own" pet. Grace has the rabbit, LeeRoy has the fish, I suppose the cat is mine...and the dog belogs to all of us.

We went to the pet store yesterday and he totally fell in love with a cockatiel. That's what he wanted for his birthday, so that's what he got.

This is the sweetest bird. It is about a year old and has been hand raised by someone who had to give it up due to a move. Its name is Tarzan (because he likes to climb) and he is very tame. Loves to climb on shoulders and loves to have his head petted (he bends it down for you to pet).

Logan's in love...we can barely get him to leave the bird alone so the poor thing can sleep!

Oh well, just another addition to the animal menagerie.

I think each child needs a pet of his own when he is growing up. Our boys each had a cat outside and a dog between the two of them. They agreed if I let their cats have a batch of kittens, I could give them away. I've never been sorry, it was great fun.
