Dexter's first bath...

So Dexter had his first bath today. I'd offered him going for a bath in the sink yesterday but he didn't want to know, but earlier on I'd seen him diving head first into his water bowl and I thought I should try him out with the shower. He absolutely loved it! He was so happy and excited. Me and Jack took some pictures. He looks purple in most of them though, pretty gorgeous if I do say so my self. When he dried off he was half bright blue and half purple! And just to let ya'll know, the red stuff on top of my cage isn't blood! It's just blackberry juice!

Sorry for the picture overload!

That gives new meaning to "wet".


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

OMG! That's adorable! I've never seen such a wet bird! He looks SO happy! I may have to try the shower method and see if Libby likes it.

Great pics!

Awww, cute! Did he give you a "What in the world are you doing?!" look when the shower started? Or was he immedietely like "YEAHH! BATH TIME!" ? Kiki seems confused everytime we get in the shower. She loves to bathe in her water bowl but the falling water thing seems to confuse her. But the budgies loves the shower. Right when the water starts, they know what to do, and they stand their with their heads back and eyes closed like its heaven. LOL.

Hehe thanks guys

Abby, yeah he looked a little confused but he absolutely refused the sink. He didn't mind doing it in his water bowl but he made such a mess. I turned on the shower and he started running up my arm so I was like awwh okay never mind. But then I got a little bit of water and dribbled it onto him and then he waddled down my arm and just sat in it occasionally shaking his wings and stuff

Yup, if you look in the first thread I made about Dexter with all the pictures of him you can see him eating all kinds of things and in that picture he had the whole grape stuck to his face which I thought was really funny!

Here's a link...

I can't believe somebody stole a picture of my bird to pass off as the bird they're selling!
