Pod ocassionally takes a tune he learned to whistle, and twists it up on purpose, expecting me to repeat his new version. Is this jazzed version a sign of creativity?????

No kidding. Myrtle used to sing "la la la" when she was happy. When I joined in she would set the la las the way she wanted me to repeat them.

I think it is, Dana. They do love music and often use it to communicate with us... or, at least, that's the way it seems to me.

Liseth whistles a cartoon called puppy power. One day I lost my whistle so I did a da da version and since then she does both versions.
