In this episode, I pay tribute to our beloved, funny, smart and sweet 21-year-old cockatoo Pepper. Pepper was my Mom’s bird, but became the family pet, he bonded with everyone, and loved to do knock knock for pistachio nuts. He always greeted us with a scream whenever we came in the door. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. Our beloved Pepper crossed on Saturday July 2, 2017.
