Tumblr Thread: Dog Previously Mistreated For Barking Learns To Bork Again

Every adopted pet has a past- a story that we don't know and wish we did. Normally, we only know a little bit. And with Ezri, what we know is enough to break our hearts and then melt our hearts. 

The tumblr user fire-is-her-water shared the story of their adopted doggo. The little they know of Ezri's past is that Ezri used to be abused as well as mistreated every time she barked. Now, in the hands of fire-is-her-water, in a loving home, it was time for Ezri to relearn how to bark again. And through months of work and many, many treats, she let her voice be heard again. 

Turns out, Ezri is a pupper that doesn't actually bark much - she borks. And the video of it will make your heart absolutely burst. 

Thank you to fire-is-her-water for being a totally amazing doggo parent and for giving this amazing dog the home and love that she deserves

tumblr thread about an abused dog getting adopted and learning to bark again thumbnail includes a picture of a dog '"When I got her, she’d been abused and would cower and pee at almost everything, and had been mistreated when she’d barked, so she never would. I had to re-teach her to bark by gathering her whole human pack and having everyone bark and howl and feed her treats and pet her till she got excited enough to join in."'

Henry Conklin loves his dog and wants to share the canine's voice with the world. Modern social media and Conklin's technological know-how make that possible.

The mathematics/computer science undergraduate student at the University of Virginia regularly engages in competitive programming and decided to use these skills to make a Twitter account that his dog Oliver could 'control'.

@OliverBarkBark tweets every time Oliver barks. So far he's had some very insightful things to say:



Conklin describes the process by which he achieved this feat on his website:

By connecting a Rasberry Pi, a wifi dongle, and a microphone, I was able to make a system that automatically detected, filtered, and published each and every one of Oliver's deafening vocalizations.

The full process from bark to tweet takes three steps. First is recording. I have the raspberry pi listening continuously and triggering a recording once it hears a sound over a preset volume. Oliver barking is by far the loudest thing within several miles, so the volume threshold should be sufficient. However, the recordings are still triggered occasionally by unwanted junk. To guard against this, I needed to perform a second step to filter the barks from the junk.

I took a machine learning approach to filter out the barks. I built a model using the pyAudioAnalysis library and around a day's worth of barks (about 20). I then set up a bash script to run every ten minutes, classify each recorded sound, and forward the barks on to the next step.

Finally, the barks are forwarded to the twitter api (using python-twitter) and posted under the handle @OliverBarkBark (be sure to follow!). Currently the tweets are random strings composed of "bark," "ruff," and "woof." I plan to replace that with a bark-to-text translator that will likely produce similar results but be more accurate to Oliver's actual voice.



Being the cool guy that he seems, Conklin also made all the code it took to accomplish this publicly available.

He said the next step is puppy podcasting.
