WASHINGTON COUNTY - A trip to the Humane Society of Washington County in December had quite an effect on Brittni Leanne Reynolds. Instead of just feeling sorry for the homeless pets, Brittni decided to take action. "My 10th birthday was approaching so I decided to do something for them," said Brittni, the daughter of Brad and Brenda Reynolds. The invitations explained how those who attended her party were to make their donations. Brittni asked all of her friends and family not to give her birthday presents but to donate items to the Humane Society instead.

I had a chance to interview two homeschooled teens; Becky (12) and Patrick (14) Snouffer. They are the proud owners of six birds. These birds include Sunnie, the Sun Conture; Emmie, the Patagonian Conture; Fauna, the ring-neck dove; Eugene, the cockatiel and Lucy and Skipper, the parakeets. "What were you expecting when you bought your pets and what didn't you expect?" I asked the Snouffer siblings. Patrick replied. "When we got Sunnie, I expected her to bite hard and eat a lot, but I didn't expect that she ate peanuts while holding them with her feet!
