May 2010 Meeting Recap

By: Linda P., Tuesday May 18, 2010

At our May meeting, 2 of our members took the stage.

Dee talked about an emergency first aid kit. He stressed how important it is to have one. Things to be included are hand sanitizer, clippers, pet gel, polysporin, pet bandages, Q-tips, human bandaids, quick stop, locking forceps for broken blood feathers, syringes and pain medication for the bird and for us too!

Steve talked about trick training. He stressed the need for patience and said to always have the bird’s favourite treat nearby. We received lessons on the turn around, the wave and the shake hands. Max and Chase gave a demonstration of their abilities. They showed us how to bowl, how to play basketball, how to retrieve objects, how to go through rings, how to save money in a piggy bank and how to act when there is a pretend fire. We got a glimpse into a new trick using a pirate ship.

Our library has great books in it. Doug explained his new method of book borrowing – each person will have his/her own sign out sheet.

We had great stuff on our raffle table and our buffet was delicious.
