Pizza decisions

Last night, Thomas placed his dinner on the couch for a minute and then ran back into the kitchen to retrieve something. Seeing an opportunity, Rocky ran down his cage and up the couch. He loves pizza!

But then I came in the room -- what a decision he had to make. Should he eat the pizza or threaten me? You can almost see the wheels turning in his head...
And anyone who's read this blog more than once or twice probably guessed what Rocky did...That's right -- he would rather threaten me than eat pizza. Look how big and scary he is!

Do you ever watch Barking Mad? It's a BBC show on animal planet that basically tries to re-train bad/annoying habits of pets. They do a good amount of parrots and I always think of you :)

I don't have cable, so I haven't seen it, but it definitely sounds like something I would like. Sadly, it looks like Netflix doesn't carry it, either. Thanks for the tip, though, I may have one of my cable friends tape it for me!

You sure he's threatening you or bragging about all the pizza he's going to eat? ;-)

BP, If he were bragging, he did it prematurely since Thomas returned and took the pizza away before Rocky got a bite :) (He did receive a small piece of crust, as usual, but got nowhere near as much food as if he would have just helped himself!) :)

Couldn't find any full episodes online, but here's a taste of it, if you're curious :) This clip is about training a dog not to jump.
