Sold on, but not Forgotten
Sold on after many years of giving us pleasure, unfortunately his screaming in his last year with us became unbearable. One of us had to be in his sight at all times, or else! Apart from the screaming, he was a joy, his mimicking was amazing! His vocalizations repertoire was extensive, so good it had my wife, and myself unknowingly talking to it in the belief that we were talking to our grandson. Nothing fantastic, just a simple yes or no in reply to questions. An example: Me, giving Jordon. my grandson a shout to confirm whether he was home or not. I most point out that Charlie lived in the lounge, I was in the hallway shouting upstairs to Jordon.
Me: Could you come down a minute?
Me: 15 minutes later, from the lounge: JORDON!
Me: Charlie, you little b-gger.
Charlie: Charlie’s a good boy!
Me: Chuckling to myself… Of course you are.
Not the first time we’d had that type of exchange. Anyway went upstairs to check that all was well with Jordon to find that he had again gone out with out letting someone know.
