Trying again

Tiger Lily is the green/yellow colored budgie.

Lucy Loo Loo is the other budgie.

This pictures shows them just starting to get to know each other.

They are sweet together feeding each other.... thinking they are going to make friends.

Hopefully not friends with benefits.

Tiger Lily- not just another pretty face

This is our other new addition to the family.
In all the hoopla with everything else going on.... I forgot to introduce her.
This is Tiger Lily (the green/yellow) our newest budgie. She was brought into our home to keep Lucy Loo Loo (the blue/white budgie) company. Hoping to high heaven she is another female. But, Tiger Lily's cere looks more blue than pink. She's young yet... notice the size difference? Keeping our fingers crossed here as a male would complicate things to no end.

The Mr. and Mrs. Dolittle's menagerie now include;
Harley Beaner - a peach faced lovebird, 9 years old
Lucy Loo Loo - (I believe) an English budgie 6 years old
Tiger Lily - 6 month old budgie.... sex to still be determined
Gracie - 8 month old beagle/boxer mixed breed

GRACIE- newest family member

I have been oh so busy.... and her name is Gracie. Isn't she just so sweet?

She is from a shelter. I have always, always gotten my dogs from shelters. I figure there are already too many dogs and cats in this world and the shelters.... well I wish every dog and cat that goes in these places end up getting adopted into a forever family for them.
Anyway she is a beagle/boxer mix, is 8 months old and so sweet and loving it's hard to believe she's only been part of my life for the last 3 days. It's like she's been here forever.
We have worked hard all day with the house training. The people at the shelter said she was clean. What in heck does that mean? It should have been a clear warning to me but, I was so infatuated with Gracie the day I picked her up.... I just didn't pay attention. Today (woo hoo) we made it outside for each and every poop and pee. No clean ups in the house.... yippee Gracie, what a good girl you are!
So that's part of where I have been. Busy. Busy. Busy. She's tiring me out and I know she's going to help keep me healthy. She's a puppy with a puppy's energy. What fun, eh?

Little old me...
