Today Charlie has his first appointment with Dr. Debbie, the local veterinarian we use.
I expect it to go something like this:
"HONK, honk, honk honk, honk. HONK!!!! HOnk, honk, honk, HONK!, Honk, honk, hoNK, honk, honk. Honk. Honk."
UPDATE: He did remarkably well -- stepped up nicely for everyone involved, didn't honk much or scream like Lucy.
Dr. Debbie's husband was the holder today. He's good with birds.
So Charlie's all trimmed up and has made a passel of new friends.
UPDATE II: Dr. Debbie said, "Let's get a tongue depressor so we can do his beak."
Charlie cracked that in two within seconds.
