While we got used to dogs to do some crazy staff, they apparently never cease to amaze. And if you ever thought that some certain breeds are defined by their nature to develop a strong canine behavior, then think again. Because this German Shepherd’s strange routine shows he’s anything but a pup.

In fact, Kai certainly believes he’s a bird. And even if he’s not covered by plumage, it is his behavior that sends him off. All day long, the adorable Kai loves to spend his time perched on the birdbath. And when you think his family did have a large pool, too.

Even since he was just a puppy, Kai was obsessed with the birdbath and he used to climb it with his front paws and drink water from it. Later, when he was strong and big enough, the hilarious pup just jumped on it and now he simply doesn’t want to leave his favorite cooling off spot.

“We had a pool in the backyard, but he would always go to the birdbath to get a drink because it was closer,” Ashley Shell, the pup’s mom, told The Dodo. “I started recording him because he started jumping into it to get a drink and I was impressed by the balance.”

Even he’s a very intelligent doggie, Kai just cannot give away his dark side. “He’s very intelligent, always figuring stuff out. But he also has a silly side and loves to play,” his mom said. Kai actually enjoys his plumage friends company more than the one of his own kind fellas’.  And playing with his little ducklings friends remains one of his favorite things.
