Ladies and gentlemen, the impossible has happened: A dog has learned how to speak.
Well, kind of...
Christina Hunger, who lives and works as a speech and language pathologist in San Diego, has imparted her language wisdom upon her dog, Stella. Though the pooch still doesn't have the ability to actually speak, she is able to communicate her thoughts, feelings, and wants through a special soundboard. Whenever the canine wants something, like a walk, or a simple belly-scratch, all she needs to do is press her paw onto the correct button with the appropriate word.
And, remarkably, she has learned every word on her soundboard, and can even string sentences together.
What a good girl.

We've always wondered what our dogs would say if they could talk to us.

Whether it be rolling over for a belly rub...

However, some people believe that dogs are more intelligent than we give them credit for...
