Wait, what?! We've heard of parents teaching their infants sign language to communicate at an early age, but teaching a dog to talk? That's definitely something you don't see everyday. Or ever.
Christina Hunger, a speech-language pathologist, has devised a soundboard to help her dog Stella literally tell her things. Things such as being too tired after playing and would like to take a nap, or instead of playing she would rather like to be eating, or even she'd like to go outside.
Dogs, like all animals, are always trying to communicate with us humans in their own way but with Hunger's soundboard, Stella is quite literally getting her voice heard.
