Hi, everyone! Sorry I've been gone for the past week. Work has been busy and nights have been crazy!
Sammy (and our dog, Watson) have been getting lots of attention, though.
Here's a new video of Sammy! I introduced him to his reflection a few weeks ago, and he loves it. It's a very high-energy time, so we tend to use mirrors only when he has a lot of energy to burn.
Sammy says about 20 different phrases. Our current favorites are "ay mi chico" ("Oh, my little boy" in Spanish) and "Come here, Watson!" We're working on "Elementary, my dear Watson" now that we know that he can say our dog's name.
Sammy finishes his heavy metal treatments this week (hopefully!) and will have a follow-up on Tuesday. We love his vet Quique at Hospital El Bosque (c/ Illescas, 215 Madrid, in case anyone in Spain is looking for a wonderful exotics vet!)
We're wishing lots of warm thoughts for all of our budgie friends!
