All about Ziggy
These days you hear a lot about the term ‘dog whisperer’ and most people associate the term with one particular dog trainer, Cesar Milan. Many people think that he created the term when in fact this is false. The term dog whisperer is actually a term borrowed from horse training, where certain trainers or horse whisperers seemed to be able to get horses to calm down and accept training or accept a rider on their backs. Their methods were often ‘quiet’ (as opposed to more traditional punitive techniques) to an observer as these trainers seemed to get results from quiet whispers. These days though, the term has been diluted and many people use the term loosely.

Ziggy Krueger, 3, died today in his cage, at home. Ziggy suffered a severe wing injury when he fell off of his perch. In the struggle to free his wing, Ziggy had a heart attack.
Ziggy was hatched in Madison, WI in 1999 to Mr. and Mrs. Hahns MacCaw. Later that same year he was adopted by Chris and Cathie Krueger and moved to Clintonville.
Some of Ziggy's favorite hobbies were bath time, talking and eating. He had accomplished the great feat of potty training by the time he was nine months old. He enjoyed chatting and squawking with his brother, BoBo, throughout the day. Greeting visitors with an 'I Love You', 'Hi' and 'Goodbye' were just some of Ziggy's charms. When he was pleased, he showed it by fluffing his feathers and 'growling'.
Ziggy was preceded in death by a few sibling fish; a brother, Simba's Lucky Star Krueger; two aunts, Miss Kitty, and Whitey Carroll, DeSoto, MO; and a cousin, Shelly Wickerham, Ballwin, MO. He is survived by his parents, grandparents, and many aunts and uncles. He leaves behind two sisters and a brother; Molly Krueger, Kitty Krueger and BoBo Krueger.
