We got a parrot about a year ago and started teaching him how to speak, or so we thought. But that is not how parrots learn to talk. They learn to say the most commonly used words and phrases in your household and of course the words you want them to learn. Since those too are the ones you go on repeating to them. So every other day he gets us by surprise and says words or lines we never thought he would. We have a GSD whose name is spike. The other day, to our surprise the parrot (Amigo) was calling spike exactly the way we call him....Spike come here... This little thing is too cute when he calls a GSD, the funny part is Spike actually responds to his call and is very protective of Amigo. Love them both so much.

That is a nice combination of companions you have got. One is vocal and the other is physically active. You can spend your time with them very enjoyably.

Yes you are right. I think I talk to my pets more than I do with my kids. They are all so busy and running around all the time. Just yesterday I was chatting away with my parrot, and my son reminded me saying " Mom you know that, that is a parrot?"

@vhpsandi Ha ha. That is part of life. Sometimes the kids are at it, other times the parrot is.

What a sweet story - I can just imagine the dog coming when the parrot calls him.

What a fun story to read, I was smiling from ear to ear by the time I finished it. I don't have a parrot, but I've seen some and was astounded what they can say...

What a wonderful bit of information you shared with us. Spike and Amigo would make for a great storybook for children. Too sweet!

What is a GSD? I'm glad your parrot is speaking.

What a cute story! My friend's parrot used to answer the old type phones by knocking it off its receiver with its beak. It repeatedly said HELLO, but that's all.
