Reading: Alex & Me

Alex and Me:

I finally got a chance to read this book...I had been hearing about it since it came out about two months ago. Irene Pepperberg had worked with Alex, a grey parrot, for years, I remember hearing about him a couple times a year. He was able to show that he understood different concepts, things that animals weren't supposed to be able to do.

If he could do it, can our dogs? How well do our dogs understand things? They won't be able to understand everything we say, but, maybe they deserve more credit than we give them!

I enjoyed this book and I appriciate that Irene Pepperberg took the time to share Alex with everyone.
