Rollerblading along the road
Avenue Spotlight Award
We've made a lot of progress with Sandy recently. There is one young lady in particular that Sandy absolutely hates. She has hated her from the first moment she saw her and over the past year or more it hasn't changed. I normally have to get Sandy off of her tree and move her away before they can get her food or water dishes. There are two other women that Sandy doesn't care for, but she's not as aggressive with them. I figured out that Sandy's bride currency is corn and cashews. She will do just about anything for them. This past Saturday I had Sandy with me at the front and one of the young ladies came up and I gave her some cashews. She offered one to Sandy and she took it, then made her happy bird sound. After that, she stepped over to her arm and sat nicely while she ate the cashew. I offered another one but made it clear she had to step up to another person to get it. She did just that and let the girl give her the cashew. Then we got to Sandy's sworn enemy. She offered her arm and Sandy stepped up for her. Sandy looks very put out, but she sat there for a few minutes and didn't try to kill her. Sandy wouldn't take cashew, but she had just had 2 of them and doesn't normally take more than that. The young lady says she must have offended Sandy in a previous life and she's never forgiven her. You can almost see the thought bubble above her head as she plots her revenge.
