Wow, all your pets are so talented.  My terrier does little things like retrieve the paper and takes it to who you tell him to.  He also knows every one of his toys by name and will retrieve them by name.

Pets are so much fun.  I used to have a horse that would pick up sticks like a dog and retrieve them.  See the pattern here - yes, guess it is my fault.   ;D

Fun though................

Our Dog just does the "guzzle" - that's like, she guzzles a massive amount of food every day - she doesn't do any traditional tricks, but she can tell when your upset/down etc and she does try and "emotionally" cheer you up by sort of butting up to you with her snout and then licking your face - she's not the brightest, but she's very gentle and loyal.

My bird could actually meow like a cat! I have a kitty, Milo, who is probably one of the most talkative cats you'll ever meet...she's always meowing, barking, crying, ANYTHING...well one day she was crying/demanding for her cat food (we feed her soft food once a day in the dining room, which is coincidently where the bird stays), and the bird just started MEOWING out of nowhere! It sounded EXACTLY like a cat. He never stopped since, and there would even be times where he and Milo would have full-blown conversations with one another. It's the cutest thing EVER! Most people have to see it to believe it, but when they see it happen they are floored, it's so adorable! I dunno if it's a "trick", but it's definitely unique!

Best wishes,

Oh I'm LOVING the bird and cat talking to each other.... America's Funniest Videos worthy in my mind!

My parents's Russian blue named Ramses has incredibly long toes on his paws. He too loves to kock this off, but then he'll jump down to the and pick them up with his toes!  I once actually saw him pick up a marble, I couldn't believe it! LOL..
Then again, this is also the cat that "barks" at flies.

We have three ferrets,  Spike, Guiness, and Killer, they are knuckle heads! They don't know tricks, other than begging (oops   ;D ) but they will climb anything they can, they will hide anything small enough that they can drag away, Guiness has actually dug a hole in our NEW carpeting. And they like to play 'feet' where you better have shoes on cause otherwise feet are fair game and they have sharp little teeth!!
They're way cute though, the dimwits...

Let see..

My cat  swims and loves water, and if we tap our shoulder he will jump up onto them.

Our parrot talks up a storm and actually uses words in context. "Thank you" when you  give her something, "night night" when she wants to be covered up, "wake up" when she wants to be uncovered, "Gimmie" when she is just being rude, she adores to play "peek a boo" shouting that all the time then hiding behind a toy or something, "I love you" when she feels like it and the ever popular "I'm a duck, hear me quack, QUACK QUACK".....  That phrase through our vet for a loop once when he asked her "What seems to be the trouble birdie?"  My parrot looked him  square in the face and announced "I'm a duck!"   

Pets, gotta love em.
