The arrival of a gregarious and loquacious (very talkative) talking gray African parrot pleasantly ruffles the placid routine of the Holdsworth family. Madison, or Mad as his new owner, Harry, calls him, quickly becomes a chatty, checker-playing companion for the young boy. Life for Mad and Harry is thoroughly enjoyable until a burglar abducts the astounded bird during a robbery and hustles him to an unsavory part of London.

This dog can dance!

Calling all good dogs – try the talent show circuit!

If Gin can do it – so can you!

Have you ever seen such talent? !

Reminds me of Officer Buckle’s dog named Gloria:

The children at Napville Elementary School always ignore Officer Buckle’s safety tips, until a police dog named Gloria accompanies him when he gives his safety speeches.

Here’s a book to help you teach your dog some tricks or even just to sit:

The lowly, lovable mutt

How much is that doggie in the window?


How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won’t be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I read in the paper there are robbers (roof! roof!)
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

I don’t want a bunny or a kitty
I don’t want a parrot that talks
I don’t want a bowl of little fishies [Try our Swim with the Goldfish activity!]
He can’t take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie’s for sale
I do hope that doggie’s for sale
