I'm Back

I arrived back yesterday afternoon. Manzi was very happy to see me. We took some pictures together:I went through Manzi's old tricks and he still remembers all of them. He is also flying very well. He was able to maneuver through the doorways today wanting to fly to me from another room. Since I arrived yesterday, he is calling my name every time I leave the room. Cesar said he only said my name occasionally while I was gone, but since I'm back, he knows he can call me and get a response. In fact, Cesar said he wasn't talking much at all while I was gone, but he is talking non-stop since I've been back. Manzi is also way over due for a shower. He is so dusty.

It is freezing here! Yesterday it was 62 inside and only 48 outside around 2pm. Manzi isn't shaking from the cold at all since he was slowly acclimated. Hopefully it warms up soon so we can resume flight practice. I have high hopes for him this summer. While it is still cold, I am going to buy a whistle and began recall training. I am going to hate the sound of the whistle after Manzi repeats it, but it will be loud enough (I can't whistle very good myself) so that he can hear it from far away outside.

A funny thing happened this morning. Manzi was being loud quite early, so when I got up I was about to scold him. All I got out was, "MANZI!" when I was quickly interrupted by him saying, "That's too loud Manzi!" He knew exactly what he was doing wrong. It just made me laugh.

Ah Love, together at last. I bet you missed him and it was nice to have him back. Pretty funny that he can finish your scolding.
