Before you get too excited, let's make this clear: When we say "trains his pet pooch to act like a parrot," we don't mean in the talking-and-squawking way. We mean the riding-on-his-shoulders-as-he-walks way. Of course. Obviously.

As you'll see from the clip below, a man takes his dog for a walk. After seeming to find the snow on the ground a little too cold for his liking, the dog in question leaps onto his owner's back.

Not after a first attempt, mind you, but still, it's more nimble than we'd ever be. Climbing onto another man's shoulders, that is. Not that we've tried.

Anyway, up he pops, and soon the man is strolling around, doing his general day-to-day business as his best friend watches from on high, sniffing and judging.

So here is the clip in question, and just to warn you, it's probably best if you don't try this yourself at home. Especially if you have an Old English Sheepdog. Or a Great Dane.
