As a note, we’ve had some staff changes this month. Here’s a big congratulations to all the new and/or promoted staff!
New Site Promoter: Debra
New Moderaters: Blaine and Laurie
Promoted to Global Moderator: Kiwi
Congrats again guys and thank you for your willingness to help out! As part of the staff note, we here on the boards are doing are best to keep Bird Crazy a great place to be. If you have any suggestions feel free to post them on the Suggestions Board in the members area. If you come across something that isn't as it should be, please PM one of the staff members.
Angela chose the Bird Crazy Bird of the Month for August, and the winner is George! Her little kakariki baby Dinky is just too cute for words. Good job with him George! ;D
Lots of new FIDS (feathered and furry kids) have joined the boards this month… along with their parents, of course!
On the furry side: Birds4life brought home a Shiba Inu mix pup, no pics yet, but I’m sure he’s lovely. Laurie got a little husband for her Shih Tzu Gracie Ann, and Gracie Ann had four absolutely adorable pups earlier this month! If you haven’t seen them yet, look for them in Dog Crazy…
Sal and Jamie got Lily the pure white hamster. Jamie is smitten and so am I!
Laurie and her daughter Chantell were also able to bring home a very cute deaf Great Dane named T-Bone. This is extra special since Chantell is also deaf, and there is a really neat connection there. Good luck to both of them!
Laurie (who has been VERY busy this month) keeps sugar gliders and was blessed with a pair of little angels named Jasmine and Lily. The little gliders are well worth looking at!
Feathered Newbies: A lovely budgie and a tiel who is also unnamed have joined Kiwi, lucky birds! Debra is currently awaiting (or just welcoming) a new tiel, and we’re looking forward to hearing how that works out. Debra posted a picture, and if I was her, I couldn’t wait for the new girl to arrive! Blaine has successfully acquired his cockatiel and now has a handsome new friend named Razz! And to top it off, Laurie is trying to keep me very busy keeping up with her confessions… in one post, she confessed to buying two cockatiels, a pair of bourkes, and she also mentioned two green cheek conures! I’m not sure if the conures are new, but they are definitely welcome and good looking. ;D
A few of the many Must-See threads from this month:
In Dog Crazy- Lanky Lapdog. Sal’s not so little pup is “terrorizing” her hubby… very funny!
In Other Pets- Jasmine and Lily Open Their Eyes. Laurie’s baby sugar gliders… adorable!
In Kakariki Pictures- Baby Diaries. George has a really neat series of pictures showing her kak pair and their babies growing up.
Also as a note, we have added a new Board called the Swap Shop... and nobody has posted anything in it yet. You don't HAVE to use it, but this is just a reminder in case you didn't notice it and have something you'd like to swap for something new.
Well, I believe that is about all... if I miss something terribly important please PM me in the next few days and I’ll add a P.S.. Have a great month everyone!
