I have had animals in my life since I was a child. I have loved them all immensely. There is something special about my bird. That said, I did my best with what knowledge I had . . . until Lara Joseph entered our world. Jonah turned 16 yesterday and I can honestly say that I think my relationship with him has grown exponentially since joining Level 1 and the Parrot Project. I realized that I was not reading some of his behaviors correctly and feel that my communication with him is much more accurate than it used to be. Am I perfect? Far from it but I will continue to work on it with Jonah for as long as we are together. It is with immense gratitude that I thank you, Lara Joseph for all you do.
