So we got Amigo as a hatchling from a breeder in Laguna Beach, California. He was hand-fed and we participated in every aspect of his care with the breeder prior to his arrival in our home. What a character! From the moment he met our dog, Leonard, it was his mission to tease and annoy him! When he started talking we were so surprised that is was TO the dog! He literally jingled the bell at the top of his cage and called the dog!! "Leonard, come on, come on, let's go for a ride!" And that silly dog fell for it time and time again...partly because he either didn't realize it was the bird or because he figured the bell sounded just the like keys my sister jingled to call the dog for his favorite trip in the car! He would come tearing down the stairs and skid to a halt, sliding the floor mat up against the front door and then look at us, wagging, as if to say, "Ok! Here I am. Ready for adventure." The few times he realized we were going nowhere, he would look up at the cage in disgust, almost perceptibly muttering, "stupid bird" under his breath! We had so much fun with Amigo for the 18 years he lived. He would hang upside down from the perch and squawk loudly and ask, "How do I look? How do I look?" Hilarious. My sister taught him to sing a little Sesame Street song: "It ain't easy bein' green." But then he would add weird stuff on his own like, " A bow bow....oh, Frankie!!!" We never knew where he picked up half of his vocabulary but he put it all together and would talk for hours. For many years after he passed we would watch the videos we made of him and his numerous antics...he is forever missed.
