Okay, go read the story - it's about a Myna bird being a tattle tale, but then consider this:

I know Myna can be mischevious! I knew a Myna bird owned by a family that had other animals, including Baron, the biggest St. Bernard I'd ever met - he was 300+ pounds. The bird would wait until Bernice was in another room and Baron was llying down in one of his favorite spots, usually curled up under the dining room table. It would then shout "Baron, Bad Dog!" or "Baron, stop that!" in a very accurate imitation of Bernice's voice. Poor Baron would get up, and be all confused, wondering what he had done to get himself so badly scolded! (Poor baby!)

That's GREAT! Well, it's not funny that the hubby was having an afair, but it's funny that the bird was the one to let the wife know. Also, Karen, that story of the St. Bernard and the bird....I can just see it! I have had parots and I know how well some of them talk, I find that hilarious that that poor dog got yelled at for finding a nice comfey place to sleep on the floor http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

That's so funny! I always wanted a bird who could talk! I had no idea they could be of legal help! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif
