Show Low, Arizona - On July 24, 2010, Pretty Bird Pomerantz passed away peacefully in his sleep, or...he may have fallen off his perch and suffered a fatal blow to his head. Pretty Bird was approaching his fourteenth birthday, according to his owner, Ms. Virginia Pomerantz, and had lived a very sedentary life since his narrow escape with death several years ago when he was attacked by a crazed poodle. Pretty Bird lost his leg in the fracas, and all hopes of a prosthetic limb were abandoned after seeing the vet bill for the surgical removal of his mangled limb by a guy in a white coat using a pair of finger nail clippers. Pretty Bird will be sorely missed by his owner and will be buried privately in the backyard. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the animal shelter of your choice, or you could just have a beer and toast PB's memory. That little sucker has been clinging to his perch with one leg for years.
