Cockatoos are among the most affectionate of all birds, but few of them have ever gone above and beyond in the service to their brother animals as Spike the cockatoo.

As seen in this video, Spike does a lunchtime solid for a pair of Great Danes, using his avian wits to reach into a box of Milk Bones and get some dog treats, which he then throws down on the floor for the hungry hounds.

The grateful Danes eagerly chomp down on the snacks without so much as a bark. Presumably they'll thank Spike later – though we can't see them serving him birdseed any time soon.
