Abdul is king!


Usually when I clean bird cages, I put the dogs in my office so they and the birds don’t tangle. The other day I was doing the cages but for some reason forgot to put the dogs away. I was halfway through Abdul’s cage when I was distracted and stepped out onto my porch for a few minutes. When I got back, I noticed two things. One, Abdul was not in his cage and two, the dogs were freaking out. That’s when I saw Abdul standing on the first stair leading to the second floor where the dogs’ food, to say nothing of my/their bed is. Abdul was holding his own against all comers and not letting the dogs pass as he paced back and forth across the stair and yelled at them. I thought the dogs were going to have a nervous breakdown.

In my home. Abdul the African Grey, rules supreme!
