    Default What's that Lassie?

    The special programme analysed more than 6,000 barks from 14 Hungarian sheepdogs in six different situations.

    In a series of tests the team of scientists, from Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary led by Csaba Molnár, discovered that a computer could recognise whether a dog was in a stranger, fight, walk, alone, ball or play scenario.
    If this true, it's going to be awesome.

    ^ Why? Are you from Hungary or have a sheepdog?

    Cats will always outsmart dogs.

    Creeps me out a little..
    Sure, its nice to know if the dog wants to warn you, if a car is close to hitting you, but..Somehow I can picture people actually talking more to their pets. Like, trying to talk to them like they were real people. Besdies, arent those translated barks, just best guesses?

    Besides, i allready know what my cat says (Know it ins't a dog ^^) so I alleady know if its hungry, wanna play or wanna come outside when it "miaw's"

    I talk to my computer! Does that count?

    When I had my cat, I knew what he wanted. Biting ment "play with me." Biting that caused bleeding ment "I'm done playing with you."
    Scratching ment "don't you dare give me a shower you stupid owner."
    And "MOEW!" ment "feed me I'm hungry."

    He was such an attention whore :3

    Sometimes when he got nothing to do, he just stalks me all day, follow me around and stuff, waits outside the bathroom when I need to go pee etc. weird..

    Reminds me of that Freakazoid episode with the Animal Psychiatrist:
    Psychiatrist: Meow meow meow
    Cat: meow meow meow
    Psychiatrist: he says he's very sad
    XD
