So This Guy and His Talking Dog Go into a Bar. . . .

Barking mad? The gadget that translates your dog's woofs into words
| Mail Online
: "Ever wondered what your dog is saying when he barks?

A Japanese toy company has invented a device it claims will be able to detect your pooch's emotion from its bark and then translate this into human words.

Called Bowlingual Voice, the talking gadget can detect six senses: sadness, joy, alertness to danger, neediness, happiness and frustration.

It also has a recorded repertoire of spoken phrases such as 'play with me', 'leave me alone,' and 'I feel sad'."

The translator collars in the movie UP were much better. I suspect most dog owners can detect emotions pretty well without a translator.
