Heroes

Usually it’s Cooper who likes to promote the heroes, shelters and rescues who help her feathered friends. Today, it’s Harvey’s turn.

Working hurricane relief, when suddenly…  On reddit

“lil buddy” is doing just fine, has made a ton of friends. It’s amusing to watch all these soldiers drop what they’re doing to come feed him peanuts….lil buddy has been supervising the relief effort from a high perch. With the OPTEMPO we’re pushing here it’s hard to keep track of him but the marines have spotted him a few times. And I will do what I can to reunite “lil buddy” with his home.

731 Days of Harvey

Two years ago, today, Harvey came to stay.

This was the year Harvey finally stepped up. Patience finally paid off. He still will only step up from one side of the cage and will only go in the cage if your finger is on his right side. So, we still have a bit of work to do. This is also the year that he bonded with Cooper. Harvey loves to sing and chatter at bedtime and is going at it long after the lights are out. I’m looking forward to the day where I’ve won enough trust from him to give him a kiss.

Happy Anniversary Harvey – we love you!

365 Days of Harvey

One year ago today we brought home this little fellow.10And here he is today: hvy15anniYep – he looks as comfortable with the camera as he did a year ago. Harvey still has not stepped up. His previous owners must have really traumatized him. He will put one foot on my finger. But that’s it. I know one day the little light bulb will go off and he’ll step up, so we keep trying.

Harvey loves Lera and they are fun to watch as they groom each other. He’s a good eater and is very chatty when the lights go out. His toenails grow quickly and instead of taking him somewhere to get them clipped, we did it ourselves. He handled it like a champ.

Happy anniversary Harvey – we love you!
