Dotty was 94 years old when we made this video on May 18, 2011.
Harvey is a toy repeat parrot who became Dotty's best friend.
Dotty often spent time talking to Harvey during the day. He was also very good at getting information out of Dotty.
For example, Dotty might tell Harvey she had a "splitting headache". When I asked her if she had a headache she said, no.
Dotty went to Heaven on May 25,2012.
