Yeah, there's something really special about other people recognizing how great your pets are, isn't there? Getting to know their quirks and nuances...because really, that's such a personal thing, something that someone usually only sees if they are one-on-one with the animal day in and day out. I can't possibly describe how the smallest gesture our Nanday makes cracks me and the hubby up.
I didn't train him to do this actually... don't have the time to train my birds one by one. When I visit the colony, it's hard to focus on just 1 bird since the others won't let me go ... they keep attaching themselves to my t-shirt, feet, hair, like a plague. LOL
