I won the door prize

I didn’t come home empty clawed from Speedy’s Pirate Party  (in case you were there and didn’t recognize me, I was the parrot with a peep on my shoulder). I won a door prize. Speedy picked my name out from the entrants. I must confess, I cheated. A little eau de lettuce sprinkled on my entry sure helped a lot.

Here’s what I won.


First, there’s a pupbrella


Get away from that umbrella, Kali. Can’t you see that it’s mine because there’s a bird on it?

Then there’s an ASPCA blanket for when I get cold (that’s about a week in January here in Arizona)


I think this is mine also. It’s the color of my beak.

And then there’s the Pet emergency first aid kit that I hope we never have to use


It’s blue like my feathers. I’ll keep this one also. Thank you very much, Speedy!

What’s that Kaci? You and Kali want a door prize also? Ask and you shall receive, all yours:
