Hi! I have a Blue Quaker named Dusty who's going on 4 years old
and I've had him since he was a baby. When I talk to him, I talk
in a slightly higher pitch than normal and he knows what I'm
doing, teaching him words. He's also completely potty trained
and we carry on complete conversations. Quakers are shy in
talking too and prefer to just talk to a limited few. You can
talk to him all day and when you're out of view, you'd be
surprised what all he will remember and say. I wouldn't take a
cool million for mine! He sits on one shoulder and my Jendaya
sits on the other. Sometimes, I'm just the middle gal between
the two. Have fun with yours. They are explorers, like shiny
jiggly things and a real hoot!! Connie
