We dont have a dog to help us on the job - just our macaw, Socrates. She checks up on everything were doing...
We have Socrates chew on everything we build to make sure its strong enough to withstand Macaw-jaws-of-destruction!
Socrates keeps us safe on the job by making us always prepared for a sudden landing - we always strap in or have an extra foot and hand hold.
