Scientists are working on a device that will interpret what your dog is trying to say when he barks at you. Is this really something people need? Is it that hard to understand your pet? My dog has 3 or 4 different barks, and they’re all pretty obvious to me. One means “give me your food or else,” another means “let me outside or I’m going to pee on the carpet,” and then there’s the really grouchy one he makes at my wife that means “lift me up on the bed now, I’m too small to jump but I can still poop in your shoe if you don’t do what I say.”
I think this is a waste of time and technology. What we really need is a device that would figure out why women like my wife insist on bringing annoying, yapping little dogs into our homes.
