Can Dogs Talk?
We have all heard the Taco Bell dog and various computer animated dogs pitching products, but can dogs talk in real life. Most of you would probably say that dogs can't talk. But the answer to this question may not be as obvious as you might think.
After all, dogs are smart. And they have brains much larger than a parakeet. So why couldn't they learn to talk at least as well as your average bird?
Do talking dogs exist? I stumbled upon a number of sites and videos featuring talking dogs. Some of these dogs sound like they can really talk; others aren't that convincing. I'll let you be the judge.
Talking Dog Video
This is a collection of talking dog video clips featuring a number of different dogs. Mostly the dogs say "I Love You" or "I want my Mamma". The first few dogs aren't that impressive, but the last one speaks quite clearly.
A Compilation of Talking Dogs
Waffles the singing Chihuahua sings "I love you Ma ma" . But he should stick to his day job. I don't think he would make it past the first Idol auditions.
Peter the Talking Italian Greyhound Dog
This dog definitely utters a number of phrases, but I get the impression it is just mimicking its master. If I were the dog I would get pretty sick of all the baby talk after a while.
Odie the Talking Dog
This is a video clip of yet another talking dog. Odie appeared on the David Letterman show and impressed everyone by saying "I Love You" to his owner.
My Own Talking Dog
Now might be a good time to come clean and admit that when I was a kid, I had a talking dog too. This was before camcorders were everywhere (which explains why I am not posting a video). Mine used to tell us when she was hungry and actually say "I'm hungry" and when she wanted to go out for a walk she would say "Let's Go!" And of course she would say "I Love You".
So I have always been a believer that some dogs can talk. I know most of you will be skeptical and think I must have been hallucinating, but oh well.
