Pete the Parakeet

Pete was actually David's bird. David got Pete one day on his way home from school Pete just flew down and landed on David's shoulder and David brought Pete home. Pete was a really smart bird, he could talk saying several things like "Pete's a dirty bird" and "Merry Christmas". We would play with Pete who would fly though the house chasing David. David would also set up a tunnel of newspaper on the floor and Pete would run from one end to another. Sometimes at dinner time Pete would land on the table and pick pieces of food off your plate. We had Pete for several years when one day we came home from school and found him on the bottom of his cage. He was still alive but seem to have some problem. We called Dad at work and Dad brought home a plastic bag with pure oxygen in it and put Pete in the bag. That revived him but some weeks later Pete died.
