ADORABLE: Pup tells owner he wants a 'yum yum'

- A Lutz man says his dog has an usual talent: when he wants a treat, he simply asks for one.

"Toto" is a Chinese Crested Powderpuff with the gift of gab. Ralph Parris said he was totally amazed when he first heard Toto say he wanted a "yum yum," or what Parris calls a treat. "I was totally amazed. I wasn't trying to teach him to talk because everyone knows dogs can't talk," Parris told FOX 13.

But in a series of videos posted to YouTube and on Toto's own personal YouTube channel, Toto appears to very clearly say, "yum yum."

Parris, who is a former teacher at Blake High School, said Toto walked up behind him one day and said it. "I didn't even know he was back there and he said, 'I want a yum yum,'" Parris said. "I was just stunned."

Parris said he rescued Toto, and believes he is about six-years-old. He says he tells Toto, "Tell me what you want," while holding up any dog cookie and Toto will reply, "I want a yum yum."

It sounds a lot like "num num," but it's pretty spot on!
