In a hilarious feat of good timing and creativity, the dog "talking" in this video sounds like our own way of pleasant conversation. However, some more common sounds from your pooch may include barking, baying, growling, howling, and whimpering. When faced with these, a common question is shared by pet owners: "Is my dog speaking to me, or just making random sounds?" You might be pleasantly surprised to know that some dogs are capable of replicating human speech. Just like with a newborn baby, speech can be picked up if it is replicated and continually reinforced. While it is highly unlikely that any dog knows the meaning of the majority of our language, we are continually learning more about their cognition and capabilities.
