Re: Right now Salty is.....

We had been at the cabin this last weekend and Mrs. Boats pulled out the Jenga sticks game. So, I called Salty rules apply! The humor was over the top! I will forever be thankful for Salty's version of that game!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Boats, it was both funny and a bit sad, because my little Maxie used to do the same thing when we played Scrabble, throwing the tiles off faster than I could replace them. We used to play just to laugh at him throwing them away as only a parrot can, with disdain and style, ya know? Salty reminds me sometimes of Max.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Clearly he enjoys not only the treats, but completing the trick as well!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Oh yeah, he loves doing the tricks we did, they are some of his favorites. He does have those, and others that he would rather not do (though he humors me and does them anyway). I always get a kick out of watching him run to the side of the table and look down to check out which toys and tricks I have laid out on the floor. When Salty likes a trick, he will do it for 'free'; flipping the yellow hoop is like that. He would do that all night long just for fun!!!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

I think we may, just may, have turned the corner on this years mating season and its unpredictable, arbitrary behavior. Of course that means that tomorrow, Salty will give me a bite from out of the blue! But it really seems like my sweet lil' yellow shoulder amazon is back in town and open for business. He even seems like he is giving Tinker, our 15 yr old Cairne Terrier, a break; usually if she is anywhere near at hand, Salty would run over and try to nip her, or chase her out of her accustomed chair in the living room. The Magnanimous One has been lately letting sleeping dog lie, literally.

So, Dear New Members, this illustrates the cyclic nature of mating season and it's attendant off-the-wall behavior. Forgive him, Lord, for he know not what he do.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Lucky Salty!

Julio looked /acted to be on his way to safe land and then 'yesterday' happened. Like out of the blue! He was unhappy with everything and everyone! Afterwards, the poor guy just perched there for near an hour, trying to understand what happened.
