What’s The Best Farm Dog?

REHOBOTHDEWEY:jpgcolliesheepI live in Sussex County, Delaware which is primary resorts and agricultural. We live in Rehoboth Beach and enjoy being in a resort area but as soon as we drive down any of the roads off of route 1, we’re in farm country. Our best friends are also very helpful to farmers in the region. The best dog by far for farmers is the Border Collie. The Border Collie isn’t content waking on his dog leash, or sleeping all day in his comfy dog bed. He lives to work. The Border Collie was developed in the border country between Scotland and England. Their main job is to herd sheep and they are great at it!  Border Collies are one of the smartest dogs. Don’t be surprised if they are able to outsmart you! Some Border Collies understand more than 1,000 words!  Don’t worry they still will chase their dog toys and play like other dogs but they remain a great asset to our farmers.

Are Parrots Smarter than Dogs?

greyparrotDogs can join the police force, monkeys are primates and in ways similar to humans but did you know that parrots could be the smartest animal of them all? A new study showed that the African Grey Parrot performed as well as a three year old on a mental test.

This test involved hiding pieces of walnut inside one of two containers. the two containers were shaken, then the parrot used his beak to overturn one of the containers. According to the Daily Mail, the parrot chose the correct container 70 -80 percent of the time.

This high percentage shows that the parrots are able to link the rattling sound to food. They can understand that when an empty container was shaken, the food was in the alternate container. Very impressive! This behavior was shown in the great ape but never in any non human animal.  So realize that your African Grey Parrot in is bird cage is much smarter than you think.  Maybe some extra bird toys may be in order for this amazing bird.

I would like to thank Webvet for providing much of the information.
