What Dogs Hear (1997 Version)

Stan Freberg here. Do dogs understand us? My son Donavan has a Gary Larson cartoon on his refrigerator. It shows a man talking to his dog. It says, "What we say to dogs: 'I've told you before, stay out of the trash! Do you hear me, Ginger?'" The other panel says, "What dogs hear: 'Blah blah blah blah Ginger.'" Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. The Cotati, California Police Department bought a $6000 Belgian Malanois named "Colin"; but the dog was imported from Europe, and doesn't understand English.

Colin's two-legged partner says when he brought the dog home, his wife thought the expensive canine was stupid. She would tell him, "Get OFF the bed, do you hear me?" The dog would lie down on the bed.

It turns out "off"--"af" in German--means "lie down"! The dog heard "Blah blah blah blah af," and did what he was told.

That's all from the communications desk.
