    There's no problem with giving the two more pastel colored ones away as well. The Peachfaced Lovebird has been heavily bred in captivity, and many  color mutations have been developed. But these color forms are just as hardy and wonderful as natural colored birds.

    I recommend you take it to a vet, they will know if it can be fixed or what needs to be done with it.

Our long-hair chihuahua is almost two years old and such a sweetheart. She gets along great with our relatives' small dogs and at home with our 13 year old cat. Its so cute to watch the cat and dog play tag around the house (although the chihuahua knows the cat is the alpha pet). She still has potty-training accidents during bad weather, but otherwise is very behaved. Unlike most of her breed, she rarely barks and rather lick people then bite/growl. Chihuahua's have a very bad rap for being yappy and ill-tempered dogs but not all of them act that way.

    i have a 1 year old long haired chi and she is the sweetest dog. She also never ever barks and loves to lick people. I thought my Peanut ( that's her name cause she is only 3 lbs) only did that. As far as potty training goes, she is too little to go outside in the snow so I have placed a small pan with a piddle pad in it in the corner of my bathroom and she goes in there. She also goes outside when its nice out, but I found this to work great for chi's that are so small.

    I have 2 long hair chihuahuas and they are so wonderful. I was given the first one from my daughter and he was so shy and scared of everyone and everything. He was 2 now he is about 7 and so happy, he is awesome to watch run he looks so proud. He does still have a bit of an attitude, always afraid of others around his food but just growls and complains. My little girl is almost 3 and so different I had her from about 2 months. She is happy and very friendly but barks because the male does when someone comes around. But she always wants to greet people and get some attention. I love this breed they are so cute and stuck to me like glue.

    I have a 5 year old chuchua her name is Lucy and she doesn't bark and is so sweet and lovable. She is short hair breed but doesn't shed much and she is great with most people. Only time she bites is if she thinks one of us is being hurt.

We adopted our beagle, Shiloh, 7 years ago from the Humane Society when he was about a year old. He was a tough puppy for the first year and a half between the pooping and peeing in the house and the chewing. Once we got his food right and he outgrew the chewing, we could truly enjoy him. Although he's an Alpha, he is such a mommies' boy. He's extremely intelligent, sweet and tough. If thunder startles him he barks at it almost to have the last word. He loves kids, loves spending time with his canine and surprisingly feline pals at doggie daycare, but his most favorite is cuddling with us at the end of the day. Beagles are the best!'

Hello. I'd like to thank you for the wonderful information you've provided! I'm interested in getting a pair of doves, but I first had some questions to which I can't seem to find any answers: Firstly, are Diamond Doves messy? I understand that they eat entire seeds, so there aren't any hulls to scatter about. However, I'd have to house them in a cage within my house, as it's a condo and there's no room for an aviary. Will I have to worry about seeds and excrement flying out of the cage and onto the floor/walls? If so, are there any suggestions for preventing this, such as a small plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter of the cage? Secondly, I understand they are social birds, and should be kept in pairs. I'm not certain that I'm ready for the plunge into breeding. Would it be okay to have two of the same gender? If so, would two females or two males be most wise? Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

    Thanks for your nice remarks about our site, much appreciated:)



    The Diamond Doves are wonderful birds to keep, and are actually pretty clean compared to other seed eaters. But your idea of a plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter can help as well. Although a male/female pair is ideal, they can be kept as same sex pairs to avoid breeding. Getting two males is the best to avoid breeding behaviors.

    I have a pair and yes there are some seeds on the floor but its the feathers! The entire floor is covered with itty bitty little feathers! That seems to be the only mess there is.

    Hi Hannah,
    Where are you located? We are looking for a bengal kitten to join our family. My husband and I are teachers and we have two young children.
  • Robin Butterfield - 2012-07-01
    Hi Hannah-brown, I was wondering if still had anymore Bengals you wanted to give away. My husband and I are always home so it would never be lonely. I've wanted a bengal for almost 3 years now but they were just too expensive for us at that moment. Please let me know if you do or don't so I won't keep wondering about it. I'd really appreciate that!!! I live in Washington. Where are you located? Thank You So Much, Robin Butterfield

I am nine years old and I am looking for a galah or cockatoo as a pet. I live in Adelaide and I would like to know if anyone has one that they would like to give away. I have a cocky cage already. I would be a good carer for it.

    I just got a cockatoo a week ago. His name is BBY he is sulfur crested cockatoo. Here is my opinion. He picked me as his owner. He just came to my favorite Amazon Jungle in Ormond Beach Fla. Bby came to them about a month ago from another owner. I lv my Bby but they need a lot of attention.if and when u get one make sure it is a Bby cause from g

Scooter blenny was my favorite too. I say "was" because he passed on yesterday. I had a lot of algae on the rocks in my 65 gallon berlin style reef and not a lot of coral thanks to the Racoon Butteryfly (which are awesome to get rid of aiptasia btw if you don't care about losing all your mushrooms too). To decrease the algae I took 3 actions: decreased frozen food (mysis etc.) from 2 cubes per day to 1 for all 8 fish; turned off the MH--actinic blue fluorescent only each day for 12 hours; stepped up 10% water changes/vacuuming from every 2 weeks to every week. Which killed the blenny? I swear he was eating but maybe it wasn't enough. You be the judge and comments welcome.

    How long have you had your scooter, they eat really small copepods that reproduce normally in your sump so its possible he didn't have any food to eat

I have a chinese algae eater for so many years I can't remember exactly how long. 6years ago he was five inches long and I got him when he was tiny. He could be about 15. He lives in a 40 gallon tank with neon tetras, apistogrammas and a clown loach. He and the clown loach cuddle up in the same cave and he gets grumpy and thrashes his tail to make more space but always they go round as a pair. I got in another clown loach to be mates with the other but the original loach only wanted the chinese algae eater. I have had no trouble with the chinese algae eater attacking other fish and he spends his time dashing around with the clown loach, sucking up any algae he finds on leaves or the glass, then hanging on the side watching me. I give them bottom feed tablets and they hoover up any food fallen from the others. Maybe I have been lucky, but he has been a delight and never aggressive, just a bit of a grumpy old man!
