Pet Pride; Our Billy;

My name is Billy. I am a Jack Russell, born two and a half years ago. I am a very astute dog I do not take NO for an answer. My family insisted that I show some of my baby pictures, because they think I was so cute. OK lets get it over;

Here I am in all my puppy cuteness.

The Galah; Eolophus rosaicapilla;

"shall we stay or go"?
"Try this, it is tasty"!

" OK then, you win"!

The Galahs love to come to eat the seed of the Tipuana Tipu tree.
The Galah ), Eolophus roseicapilla, also known as the Rose-breasted Cockatoo, Galah Cockatoo, Roseate Cockatoo or Pink and Grey, is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia.
It is endemic in Australia (including Tasmania), where its distinctive pink and grey plumage and its bold and loud behaviour make it a familiar sight in
the bush and increasingly in urban areas.
The term galah is derived from gilaa, a word found in
Yuwaalaraay and neighbouring Aboriginal languages.[1]

Galah is also a familiar Australian slang term for a foolish person.
