Name of owner: Danise Miao

Name: BB

Age: Three-and-a-half

Breed: Amazon parrot

Favourite food: Melon seeds, apples

Favourite pastimes: Pecking the dogs when they come near me (I live with a couple of gigantic dogs), leaning my head forward to ask my owners to pat me, flapping my wings in defence when I see the dogs

Greetings to Young Post readers: Whenever strangers come to my house, I greet them with three phrases I learned from my owners: 'Hello, pretty girls', 'Kung Hei Fat Choi' and 'Go away!'

Name of Owner: Priscilla

Name: Momo

Age: Eight

Breed: Shih Tzu

Favourite food: Chicken breast and chicken leg, vegetables (I don't like dog food!)

Favourite pastimes: I love to play with gloves when my owner puts them on, and I also like to play hide-and-seek (my owner hides and I seek)

Greetings to Young Post readers: One of my favourite hobbies is scratching a certain corner of the flat. I think there's hidden treasure, although I haven't found after years of digging.

Name of owner: Danise Miao

Name: Ivory

Age: One

Favourite food: Blueberries, live crickets

Favourite pastimes: Climbing onto people's heads to get a better vantage point, climbing into their shirts to take a nap in the dark

Greetings to Young Post readers: Hello, I have a strange habit which my owners find amusing. When I stand still, I carry my weight on three legs and leave my front left leg dangling. Ain't that cool?
