I can’t do it.

We’re supposed to honor Forrest who recently went to the bridge by giving him a tail wagging good bye today. It ain’t gonna happen. I can’t wag my tail. Parrots just cannot do that.


However, I may be able to do it by proxy. Since I’m very blue, I invoke the Blues Brothers:

  1. to wagg a tail feather is great… and you are the bestest Blue(s) Brother(Sister) ever…

  2. Kismet my friend, it’s the thought that counts – those tailfeathers would wave if they could but a purrrfectly good substitute is The Blues Brothers!!! Thanks for pawticipating in Forrest’s tribute…………you’re the best burd I know!

    Love and Hugs, Sammy

  3. CRIKEY Kismet … That was a great tribute, mate! I don’t wag my tail much. Unlike you I can but I just don’t. I liked the way you got round the problem. I bet Forrest and his family do too. I hope they like mine!

  4. What a great tribute. Whee don’t have a tail to wag so whee waved to Forrest over the rainbow bridge


  5. You had me fooled Kismet. I should have known that you would come up with something awesome!

  6. You are a true friend to invoke Jake and Elwood!

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  8. That is a PAWFECT way to do this, Kismet. We are SURE that Forrest loves it.

  9. Well done Kismet! You are a loving and clever friend! I’ll wag my nub! And Max has a great big tail that gets in everyone’s way. He’ll wag too.

  10. I can’t wag mine either, but I posted today anyway. I knew you’d figure something out!
