Great idea Jane! After a while I run out of things to teach Oscar, my 6 year
old CAG so I hope to get some ideas, too. I used to write things down, but
after about 3 years I stopped - at that point I was at 200 phrases/words. Some
he drops and doesn't say for a while and then learns new ones. I have found
that as time goes by, I spend less time actually trying to teach Oscar new
things to say, he just seems to pick up new things as he hears them. Here is a
list of the Oscar's current favorite things to say:
You're so cute!
Be right back - gotta' to the store
Mommy's gotta' go to work - bye-bye - I love you
Hurt! (said after biting me)
Whistles for each of my three dogs and knows them by name
Wanna' Go For a Walk?
Where're my shoes?
What's for dinner?
Sit, stay - Good boy!
Dirty, Dirty - clean it up - get sick
Cook? Choke! (he came out with this when my Mother was visiting. I said, Well I
should cook dinner. I have no idea how he came up with this, but it was funny)
Yo Chiro Taco Bell
Here's Lizard, .lizard, lizard (Taco Bell commercial)
Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba Ba The Joy of Cola! (Pepsi commercial)
Sound of modem
Porky! Get off the floor (Porky is our***atiel)
Bad for the bird!
Where are you?
Cops Theme (his own version but....)
Andy Griffith theme (whistle)
Opera (again, his own version)
Crazy bird! Psycho!
outside bird calls (chickadee, sparrow, blue jay)
dog and cat fight
the list goes on and on......
