We call Mazie our little red bird because she was so red her first few months of life. Her lack of body fat made the color of her blood more visible through her skin.
Here are two photos of Mazie still looking like our little bird. Her skinny legs and her downy hair and the way she opens her mouth when we feed her yogurt continue to play into her avian appearance. Then she carries on the facade by carrying around this conical block in her mouth.
