Kerri loves her bird, Dusty.

He is her number one priority.

Dusty knows this and takes advantage of it every time.

He acts like he owns their home with the way he walks around.

He’s a very clingy bird and wants to be included in everything.

They have their own “language”.

Having their own little language also solidified his place in her life.

“I couldn’t imagine not having him by my side,” Kerri told The Dodo. “He’s very attached to me and me only.”

Whoever enters Kerri’s life will need to answer to Dusty.

Enter Ryan, Kerri’s boyfriend.

“Hello, sir,” Ryan said to Dusty. “I’d like to date your – “

Dusty cut him off by pecking at him with his beak.

He does not look happy to see another man moving in on his spot on Kerri’s priority list.

And Dusty has made it his mission to get Ryan to break down.

Every time Ryan is lounging on the couch, sitting down to put on his socks, or lying down on Kerri’s bed, Dusty is there to bite him, scare him, and intimidate him.

Ryan is scared of Dusty’s bites.

But he stays.

Every day, Dusty is always doing his best to scare Ryan. And every day, Ryan is doing his best to win over Dusty.

Dusty is clearly in the lead but Ryan is not giving up.

“I was focused on making the best first impression on [Dusty],” Ryan shared. “One day, I realized Kerri can’t whistle. I’m like ‘Ah, let’s see if he’s gonna be affectionate if I start whistling.'”

Want to know what happened?

Dusty was mesmerized. What is this sound he’s hearing?

It’s not like the language that he and Kerri spoke. It’s not the usual words that Ryan spoke. What is this?

And the more mesmerized Dusty was, the more hopeful Ryan got that he would win Dusty over.

“He slowly started to mimic,” Ryan added. “The longer I whistle, the longer I know he won’t attack me.”

It started to work.

Dusty was now warming up to Ryan.

He allowed Ryan to feed him treats.

Dusty allowed Ryan to pet him.

Although there were still times when Dusty opened his wings and scared Ryan, their relationship has definitely evolved.

Ryan loves Kerri.

And he will do anything to make her happy.

He also knows how important Dusty is in Kerri’s life and he honored their relationship by winning over Dusty as best as he can.

Kerri appreciates that Ryan does his best every day.

And do you know how they know that Dusty is warming up to Ryan even just a little bit?

Dusty has now learned to whistle.

Plus he’s learned to tolerate Ryan for the past five years.

And now that Kerri and Ryan are engaged, Dusty will have to learn to tolerate him for many, many years to come.
