I picked up Samโ€™s memorial this week. They added his colors into this glass sculpture and the bubbles are his ashes. Zoom in to see them. Our Sweet Sam. They engraved the bottom. Take care of him Patsy. Until we meet again.

It's #ForagingFriday!
Foraging creates choice and a sense of control in an environment with limited choices. It empowers the animal and their quality in life. It can be done. I have yet to meet an animal that I couldn't teach to forage for its food.
๐Ÿฅ
Join The Parrot Project to see how creative other bird owners are getting to teach their birds to forage!

I would do this for any animal and we've done it for many from puppy, porcupine, owl, etc. It's the ones that keep me up at night that I reach out to. This one has been on my mind for quite a while now and I reached out about a week ago to see if it was even a possibility. Well, now it's a reality and I have to figure out when to take off. I have to get my ducks in a row first, pun intended and no, it's not a duck.
.
Stay tuned!

We are starting to show how we approach harness training in The Parrot Project. If I were to attempt to put the harness on Rocky now, I have no doubt he would attack it. He doesn't understand what it is and what I would be trying to do. So we are approaching it from a different perspective.
.
Rocky is a joy to train, he always has been. I can't move past his comfort level or it would end in a bite or lunge. I don't want to reinforce that behavior. The more we train together, the more empowered he becomes and becomes eager to engage and explore new objects and situations.
.
This is Rocky after one of our training session, preparing him for the harness. We'll get there and we don't learn from easy.

My beautiful Quincy enjoying the sun on the deck. Sheโ€™s named after a town where I used to work on my dadโ€™s construction site with my two dogs after college. Sweet memories carried on through her. She was purchased for me by my mom and dad to protect me, the center, and my birds. A job which she does very well and enjoys. .
