Greetings from aboard the Battlestar Galactica

.....*crickets chirp*....I really need to lay off of that show....(I watch the 1978 version multiple times X3)

Hi ya'll! c:
I hail from the TalkCockatiels forum and thought I'd scoot on over here too. I'm a homeschooled Senior who loves biology, aviation, drawing, and animals. I also watch way too many old TV shows and westerns. Dog behavior and psychology is also a hobby of mine, mainly because I love learning how they think and why they do what they do; and also because my GR has aggression issues due to poor breeding and I work with her daily.

I am currently owned by a 2 yr old Golden Retriever named Dixie, multiple fish (and plants! ), and a sweetheart of a bird - Missy the 8 yr old WF tiel whom I adopted last month from my humane society after losing my young male Maverick unexpectedly. It broke my heart and I certainly wasn't looking to getting another bird. Especially so soon. But I saw and met Missy and had to get her out of that shelter and give her a home.

I'm an artist but hope to pursue a career as a pilot. I love flying <3 There are honestly no words to describe that feeling.

A tribute video to Maverick:
In Memory of Maverick - YouTube
And one of Missy's favorite past times.:
The Great Escape - Cockatiel style - YouTube
And last but not least, my furbaby.

Welcome to the forum! Sorry for your loss but you saved a bird in need and although she can't replace him, she can help you heal for sure

Welcome to our forum, Rowdy!
Maverick was such a cute tiel, so sorry that he died so young.
Missy is gorgeous, I loved watching her opening the door.

and welcome Rowdy, love your intro!! I retired early from nursing to follow my passion as an artist. In my younger days my hubby and I were glider/sailplane pilots. Had our own plane, that's the only way to fly!!!! Loved it for years! I was on the linnie forum til it disappeared for some reason, before flying over to this forum. Looking forward to your posts Your dog is beautiful!!
