One of the hilarious things about the recent Pixar movie UP is the leitmotiv of someone saying “squirrel!” which, as all dog owners know, drives a dog crazy. For those of you that didn’t see UP, here is a clip that features the squirrel moments. You’ll notice the dog collars that they wear. Those collars translate what the dogs are thinking into English. I love this because I often translate what our dogs say to our visitors.

As Daniel and I have laughed and joked about this for weeks, wouldn’t you know that one of our parrots, Aiko, picked it up. Last night I roared with laughter and Aiko yelled “Squirrel! Squirrel” Both dogs came thundering through the house and tearing into the backyard, outraged that a squirrel would have the audacity to encroach on their domain. Aiko then said “SIT! SIT!! Good dog.”
