As an Eclectus Parrot Ruby Sue has a calm, easy-going personality, but when something scares her she goes for option number 3 skipping over the fight or flight responses and choosing to freeze.
No worries though, Ruby Sue does great no matter where she goes in her job to further feathered education about avian care and culture. She and Zavo, a male Eclectus (below in the bright green with the candy corn beak), were breed by her current family, they were raised in other homes by loving bird families, but they both returned to their original family and are happy to be together again.
While "Z Man" Zavo enjoys spending his time talking to furniture (cupboards and bed frames fascinate him), Ruby Sue prefers building nests out of boxes or scouting for cozy locations by running underneath the couch.
"In my dreams I race rabbits and always win with my ears flapping like eagles wings behind me."
From paw to shoulder, Abby may only be a foot tall, but she packs a lot of heart (and 52 pounds) into her long Basset Hound frame.
Yes, every dog at the dog park can run zig zagging circles around her, but Abby still loves to play the game, and in true hound style she howls with enthusiasm, cheering everyone forward. When the taller dogs dash into the pond, Abby makes quite the sight splashing behind them with her long ears floating out next to her.
At home Abby entertains herself by jumping from the couch to the table and jumping from the table to the other side of the baby gate to get to her people. She's very clever at finding the best ways to jump over obstacles and practices her vertical leap daily over the drain pipe in her backyard.
