  1. I can’t read what the dog is saying because of the god damn subtitle CNN put there!

    Edit: Thanks for the likes. I wish my social life was 0.01% of the likes here.

  2. My cat only needs 3 buttons, “no”, “food”, “I’ll Kill you”

  3. Everybody gansta till Stella says “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself”

  4. Imagine sleeping at 3am and hearing “outside” “look” “scared”

  5. I love how the dog communicates with the same personality of a toddler.

    Me: How was your day, sweetie?
    Dog: “Rough”

  7. “Where are my ovaries, Summer? Where are my ovaries, Summer? They were removed. Where have they gone?
    ” – Stella

  8. everything’s chill until the dog becomes aware of it’s own condition

  9. I’ve taught my dog to communicate verbally. It tells me that the outside of a tree is called “bark”, and that it can often feel “rough”. It’s a start.

  10. “Where are my testicles summer?”

  11. When you’re chilling and hear “look” “outside” “help”

    Imagine if Stella could tell CNN not to put subtitles over what she’s trying to say.

  14. All fun and games till Stella mentions something humans can’t see

  15. It’s all laughs and giggles until dog says “basement” “movement” “danger”.

  16. The female anchor caught me off guard with that accent lol

    “why?”
    “Humans”
    “In charge!”
    “Time for”
    “Change!”
    [Stella has grabbed a knife]

    She’s missing an opportunity if she isn’t trying to turn this into a product.

      Maybe she wants this technique to be available to all by putting on the news (though CNN is about as much “News” as Fox is…)?
      Less commodification = more unification.

      @Elektric Skeptic Johaniskraut Bernstein Or’Cheard That may be true. My comment is only intended to compliment her wonderful idea. I could see people wanting to buy a starters kit for this, complete with a guide based on her expertise.

      @communityband1 That’s True 🙂 I’m sorry that I appeared jaded & a terse • it wasn’t where my mind was at but looking back I could’ve thrown in an emoji or 7?
      All good? Peace Mate.
      👍🏼😊❤❤👍🏼

    • @communityband1 Extremely excellent idea I’d love for my dog to be able to push a button and tell me more although I know her body language pretty well it would be nice to confirm communication! Absolute great idea and even better for service dogs to have & help humans more than they do already
