Dogs can’t speak human. Here’s the tech that could change that. Scientists are finally working on something we’ve always dreamed about but could never imagine becoming a reality — the ability to have a chat with our fur kids.

Weird animal question of the week: Why Dogs Pee in Their Bowls and and other odd pet behaviors explained by the animal experts over at National Geographic.
