Daisy again

I watched the little shih-tzu again. This time she interacted with Manzi in a positive way. They played quite a bit together. Last time Manzi stayed up high out of her reach, but this time he often flew to the ground and would run after her. She'd run away, then Manzi would turn around and let her chase him. He wasn't aggressive like the first time her interacted with her. Daisy was also very sweet about it. Once, Manzi did fly down right in front of her and she jumped on top of him and "mouthed" him. That scared Manzi a bit and he immediately flew out of her reach for a while. That scared me as well as I thought Manzi might get hurt, but after 10 minutes or so he was back on the couch running around with her.

When I first brought Daisy in, we filled up her food dish and Maui went over to it to check it out. Daisy could only sit back and watch. She didn't dare interrupt Maui:

After Maui was enjoying the dog food, Manzi came over as well. Maui did soak the dog food in water to make it softer. I thought that was neat that she knew to do that. Manzi's never tried that before.

When Manzi was minding his own business on the sofa, Daisy would sneak up on him and once I caught her in the action!

Manzi turned around to dare her to do it again.

So Daisy sat back and patiently waited.

Here's the two of them on the sofa together. They spent a good deal of time here:

Here is a shot of Manzi looking down at the corn-on-the-cob he just finished eating (spreading around my floor). Maybe he's thinking: Was that really my mess? Or: I wonder if there's anything left in that?
He's usually the clean one with eating, but for some reason he thought it was a good idea to drag the cob to the edge of his cage, eat it off the side, then drop the eaten cob on the ground afterward. It would be nice if I could teach the birds to clean up afterward.
