Here is a close up of a parrot's head:
I guess when you get tired of it, all you have to do is turn the switch to "off" and it will shut up. You could also take the batteries out of it. You don't even need to feed it, unless you count adding new batteries. It does, however, say it is hungry. He (or she) is sitting to the right of the TV where I can keep a watch on him, or visa versa. Right now, as I type, he has his eye on me. Now, I wonder if the pups will accept him and get along with him. OK, you have yourselves a great day, you hear?
