Happy Toasty Tuesday! Do You Smell Warm French Toast? :)

Happy Toasty Tuesday everyone!

Do you smell delicious warm French Toast cooking in your kitchen this morning?

Our friends Spanky and Buckwheat from CO sure do!

They asked for theirs to come with blueberry syrup and cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top to keep them warm on their walk this morning!

They Love their new Woofie Warmer Neck Warmers and we could not wait to share these cutie patooties with you today!

Medium Blue Collar / Cinnamon Sugar Bobbles / Navy Blue Trim

Many customers over the years have asked for a crocheted warming hug for their doggies that do not wear hats and sweaters & for larger canine family members that do not quite fit in the 36 lb weight limit of the Dog Sweater Vests.

I custom make each Woofie Warmer for you to order!

Woofie Warmer Dog Neck Warmers are comfy and warm for dogs of ALL sizes!

When ordering your Woofie Warmer, I just need to know your dog's ...



Neck Size

to know what size to custom make for you.
You get to choose the 3 colors for the ...

Collar / Trim / Bobbles

Happy 1st Hatchday Jimmie!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It is me...

Guess what?

Today is my 1st Hatchday celebration!

One year ago today I hatched out of my shell at Colorado Budgies Aviary where I was lovingly hand-fed & raised by my first mom, Amy.

She is the most wonderful breeder!

My mom & dad took me home with them 8 weeks later and here I am a year later!

I learned how to...

Fly to my mom's shoulder whenever she calls me.
TALK up a storm!

I can say...
Come here R-Chee... Come and play with me!
Come here R-Chee... You are so cute!
Jimmie is a good bird!
Jimmie is a pretty, pretty bird!
Beep Beep!
Peek - a - boo
I LOVE you!

I am a real character I tell ya!

We are going to celebrate today with a big party and you are ALL invited!

Come on over!

We cannot wait to see you!

Jimmie, R-Chee & Melissa
