I grew up with a collie, Lassie, that was the loveliest dog. My sister and I taught her many tricks and showered her with attention. It was the no leash time so she was free to run and follow her girls wherever we went. But as a young teen we went to Parrot Jungle places in Florida on vacation and I dreamed of having a parrot. When I graduated from college and moved into an apartment my Dad said he would buy me a parrot. We shopped and picked out a wild caught Lilac Crown Amazon that I named Holly and I've been a bird person ever since. My daughter has dogs (Husky Shepherd mix and Great Pyrenees puppy) so I can still get my dog fix.Thanks @Dona they are my family.
I´ve always thought of myself as a dog person. I´ve always had dogs around me, and never thought that there could be a day where I won´t have a dog in my family.
But over the years with my birds, I´ve have changed how I am labelling myself. I know that when the dreaded day comes and I lose my beloved Jacob, it will destroy me. And I can´t imagine bringing another dog into my home. I just don´t see it happening. I feel like, that will be when my life shifts, and I will probably only ever have birds in my home.
My mom's best friend when I was a child had a red Chow that I loved. Jacob is gorgeous.
