Ignore the mess but Ona always supervises when I feed the dogs 😂 They go outside and then she watches me make their food very judgy-like. I think she wants to make sure I give them enough food. She also still screams when it’s their feeding time and gets happy when they are fed. She’s so funny.

Oh my gosh 😂

I was just cheering Ona’s name for her and she was dancing. She stopped dancing, looked at me and said “pretty!” Then did her pretty pose. What a ham!!!

The other day Ona was on my keyboard while I was working. I was typing and accidentally smashed one of her toes! She got very upset!! I picked her up to apologize and she naturally bit me several times. Then she looked at me and said “Gentle”. I had to literally apologize to her about 10 times and tell her how pretty she was before she forgave me! I could tell she forgave me when she started “vibrating” and let me cuddle her. Geesh! She really let me have it over that.

"Oh I'll forgive you for that transgression, Mother. But first I must CHOMP!!!" ... Ona probably ;)

After lots of testing I’ve discovered Ona’s favorite color!


First I taught her the concept of “favorite” with food. Then we did colors until we narrowed it down.

Ona’s bird-day party was a success! She absolutely loved all the attention. Her favorite party guest was her bird sitter, who she’s never seen at home before. She was SO excited when she came in!

We had a slideshow of Ona, her favorite music, a special bird cake and bird “ice cream” (that she barely touched lol), an Ona trick show, presents, and lots of food that could be shared with the bird-day girl. She filled up on snacks quick! She loved when everyone sang happy birthday to her.

Check out the awesome drawing her bird sitter did of her!

Eating some bird cake on the back of the chair lol. Her slideshow can be seen on the wall in the background. (And yes that’s her ring toss blooper video lol)
