Do you know Bowlingual?. It is a small device which you can analyze what your dog say. Since I have not my dog now, I have never tried this, but my friend has a Meowlingual for her cats, and what does she say? She says she could understand cat's feeling because they have been living togethere but when she got her cat was hungry, Mewlingual said "please introduce nice guy cat to me". Hmm stupid. Anyway I am very concern Takara has a page for the Breed list of Dogs and cats. This will work for Japanese cats and American short hair, Russian Blue, Scotishfold etc,. This means if you have Bengal Cat, you can not use this Meowlingual, it means Bengal and Russian Blue talk in different language? ha ha ha funny.
Anyway this Bowlingual was said as a cool invention, then also this got a peace award of Ig Nobel Prize at Harvard University, this is the prize for "every Ig Nobel Prize winner has done something that first makes people LAUGH, then makes them THINK"
Recently another strange thing was on news, it is Thankstail. If somebody lets me merge into traffic, I blink the parking indicator to show my "thank you". This is common way in Japan. Is this same way in your country? This Thankstail show thank you by shaking its tail. Look the movie. Who need it? You need it?
