I’ve always wanted to learn a new language, something like Arabic, Chinese or ancient Greek, to keep my middle-aged brain from petrifying. So in the interests of staying mentally alert, I bought a book titled, “How to Speak Dog: Mastering the Art of Dog-Human Communication.”
While it’s not the same as learning Hungarian, dog talk has countless benefits. Chatting with a canine, for instance, can be more pleasant than chatting with, say, Lindsay Lohan or your resident teenager. Dogs are willing to converse on a variety of topics, including politics, sex and religion, although they probably prefer to spend their time sniffing other dogs because their olfactory skills are better than their language skills.
