TALKING PARROT MISSING FOR 4 YEARS RETURNS HOME.

By Donna Littlejohn, The Daily Breeze

When Nigel vanished four years ago, he spoke with a cultivated British accent.

Little is known about where the African grey parrot went, what he did — or who he was with — in those missing years. But when he was reunited with his owner, Darren Chick, in Torrance last week, the British accent was gone and the bird was chattering in Spanish, often mentioning the name “Larry.”

The happy reunion began to unfold after veterinarian Teresa Micco — who had been running ads for her own lost African grey parrot, Benjamin — was contacted by the owners of Happy Tails Dog Spa in Torrance, who said they thought they’d found her missing bird at their Torrance home.

“I heard somebody whistling and saying, ‘Hello? Hello?’ ” said Julissa Sperling, who owns Happy Tails with her husband, Jonathan, and was at home when the queries brought her to the door. “I opened the door and went out — nothing.”

DOLLY

DOLLY, is a FEmale labrador retriever who was born on 08/16/2014 and is APRI registered.

 

Labradors have a reputation as a very even-tempered breed and an excellent family dog. This includes a good reputation with children of all ages and other animals. Some lines (particularly those that have continued to be bred specifically for their skills at working in the field rather than for their appearance) are particularly fast and athletic. Their fun-loving boisterousness and lack of fear may require training and firm handling at times. Labradors mature at around three years of age; before this time they can have a significant degree of puppy-like energy, often mislabeled as being hyperactive. Because of their enthusiasm, leash-training early on is suggested to prevent pulling when full-grown. Labradors often enjoy retrieving a ball endlessly and other forms of activity. A labradors weight can range from  55 to 88lb, height from 21 to 25 in and the life span from 10 to 13 years.

ZACK

Zack, is a male lhasapoo who was born on 08/12/2014.

 

At their best, Lhasapoos are friendly and affectionate, although some may have the suspicious nature of the Lhasa Apso, whose original purpose was to serve as a temple watchdog. Lhasapoos generally weigh 10 pounds to 20 pounds, making them a comfortable size for most homes. They are excellent watchdogs. They also have a quick mind, making them highly trainable. Lhasapoos have a moderate activity level and adapt easily to their owners’ lifestyles. They need a nice walk or active playtime each day, and if you’re interested (and the dog's overall health is good), they are athletic enough to participate in such dog sports as agility, obedience, and rally. Both of the breeds used to create Lhasapoos tend to be smart and learn quickly. If you begin socialization and training early and use positive reinforcement techniques such as praise, play, and food rewards, you'll have a wonderful companion.

CHASER THE BORDER COLLIE

JOHN W. PILLEY is an emeritus professor of psychology at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He has been working with Chaser since 2004 and has published the findings from their work in the Journal Behavioural Processes.


Pilley has always been a lover of dogs and animals.  His work with Chaser was preceded with his first collie named Fluffy in the 60's, through a gregarious Shepard mutt named Bimbo & a gentle German Shepard giant named Grindle to his first venture into the realm of border collies in 1978 with his beloved family dog Yasha. 

All of the dogs were quite well behaved and trained however, it was Yasha who would attend class every day with Pilley. And while Yasha's trainings were not scientific, he would assist Pilley in teaching classes with his varied performances which included math (ala Clever Hans), closing doors, retrieving chalk board erasers and various objects left behind in the office.  (as well as a command to "nip" any student that appeared to be falling asleep in class.) Yasha was awarded his own student ID and given passage to area's on campus that other canines were restricted from.
