I love that parrot story.
I read that a couple of days ago. Cool, huh? My rat terrier, Precious can fetch (but only her own toys).
Our one bird will hold on to my shirt collar, and then flip herself over it so that she is holding on to it and snuggling in my shirt. I always found that trick amusing.
My cats are really good at sticking their ass in your face ;)
I voted - i'm sure you'll find a way to act as the LJ voice of reason even without their shoddy political position ;)
haha! My cats are good at that too. ;)
And thanks love. Maybe next time around I can make a difference.
It wasn't so much a trick as an odd annoyance, but my previous dog used to get great enjoyment from pulling peoples socks off. He would always be really careful not to get your toes, and then just walk backwards until he got them off. He always wanted both of them, too.
It confused my first boyfriend in High school. "Jess, what is your dog doing?" "Just give him your socks Ricky, it's easier that way." People looked at me oddly the next day at school when I returned my b-friend's freshly laundered socks to him. It also made laundry fun, because half our socks were in his dog bed.
My kitty dances and has found her singing voice. Next year she's going on kitty idol. :)
Awww!! That's adorable. :)
i voted for you anyway, yesterday.
my pet can't do much, but he snuffles a lot and i guess his favorite thing to do is dance with me. i step around real slow, and he runs around my legs, snuffling. i can't think of a better word for the sound he makes.. it's sort of a grunty sniff that you can barely hear if you are standing up (and he's down at ground level). it's awfully cute though. he also likes grabbing toilet paper tubes with his mouth and thrashing them around and gnawing on them. this dancing is a newer development though. as well as running into the bedroom (where he's not supposed to go, because he chews on our bedframe) and then being really loud if no one has noticed him enter (stomping, snuffling, running in circles real fast) until i come in and chase him out.
i think sometimes we should get another rabbit so he could have a friend, but that might result in a million rabbits since the idiots at the pet store can't tell the difference between the sexes D:
and i wouldn't want him to feel that the companion was an intruder, etc.
Awww! He sounds so sweet! What a little honey!!
And thank you for the vote love, I appreciate it.
Awesome parrot! He's so smart :D.
I don't have any really amazing things our pets can do, but our duck, Yellow, follows me when I go out for walks, and recognises my voice. She comes when you call her :D. She's cute like that!
That's awesome! And aww! Yay! :)
That'ss such a cool story! Well-trained bird!
That election sure feels like a popularity contest. I still think you should get it!! I guess I am a little biased as your LJ friend ;)
Thanks darling. :) I know my heart is in it. I'm not sure that's the case for everyone else, but I guess we'll find out. lol
I believe in Randompostings!
I have voted! Indeed!
My dog is adorable. But I think the cat thinks she is HER dog. The cat gives the dog snacks of her cat food, which is not allowed! I feed the cat on top of a counter to keep our dog, an Irish Wolfhound, out of it. She takes pieces of food out and throws them on the floor for the dog. KiaKat also gets the dog to get us to let her out so that she can hide and make a mad dash and get outside before we can catch her. I swear it! If she can't find the dog right away, she goes up and down the hallway meowing until the dog comes. It's so funny.
Than yu, darling.
And awww!! That is SO cute!!!
One of my rats sits on my shoulder as I walk around the house doing things. the other just sorta wrestle, thouhg my sister trained her rat to use a litter box, and come to her when called.
I heard about that parrot too!
Seriously cool, right? :)
