Gianna and DaVinci sitting in a tree...

... you know the rest. :-)

Gianna has been obsessed with DaVinci, my moustache parrot, since I got him in August.
I have watched them interact with much trepidation, but I do think they are working it out, and actually really like each other.

In the morning, I open DaVinci's cage and let him come out on his own. Gianna sits right there and waits for him to come out.
I usually know when he is out sitting on the top of his cage door because she barks to tell me.

Sometimes DaVinci goes down to the bottom of the door and they greet each other.
Here they are saying good morning to each other.

DaVinci loves their toy basket, but Gianna is not so sure about sharing her toys. She gets a little excited when he does this, she paws him, and goes to bite his tail, or his head. I tell her to try to relax, and watch like a hawk.

OK, where'd he go?

Gianna has becone a great baby sitter for DaVinci.


  1. That is SO neat, Diana! I think they are loving each other to death :) I loved getting to see them together! Gianna is acting SO good with the bird -- and right there with her toys lol How cute is that, DaVinci likes the dog toys :) I bet he likes all those colors and shapes lol So glad you let us see them!

  2. It is so neat to see the two of them getting along so well. :)

  3. Great pictures - at first I was trying to figure out who the other black dog was and realized it was a reflection from the mirror lol

    Very cute, Diana - you have trained them both so well :)

  4. I am with Pauline! I thought, "Did she dye Giupetto's fur??" LOL!
    So cute. Wouldn't it be awesome if one day they actually took naps together?

  5. Amazing! She is so well behaved. I love that Da Vinci likes to play with the dog toys. The are both too cute!

  6. Gianna really didn't want to share her toys, did she?! lol. they are so cute together. i love it :)
