    Where should we put the puppies?

        During this growing-up time for the boys, we didn’t have much luck with pets for them. A cockatiel was left out of his cage by the house sitter while we were on vacation and he couldn’t get back to his food and water. It was a sad time when we finally found him, feet in the air.
    Another bird we had named Bobby, a parakeet, got out of his cage and James tried shooing him back in, but he had other ideas. He flew into the bedroom door and broke his neck.
