When I first met Eephus back in August, he would always say "MMMMMM is it good?" when we gave him his food. I started telling him "Yummy" hoping he'd say it. I swear, I have been saying "Yummy" several times a day, every day since then. Finally, today - while he was eating a chicken-leg bone, I heard him say it ! Came out more like "Yommy", but he said it !
I wonder why they learn some things quicker than others - when he first got here, I would say "Go ahead" whenever I fed him, not even realizing I said it every time, and he learned that in a few weeks. He learned "Peek-a-boo" in a few days.
It's funny, most of his little phrases have to do with eating: "MMMMM", "Is it good?", "You like that?", "Go ahead", and now, "Yommy". My little piggie ...
