I saw a video on Facebook today where a man was scolding his dog. The dog looked very sorrowful and buried his head in the man’s chest as though to deeply apologize for doing wrong. Here’s the catch, the man was speaking what I can only imagine was Italian. I don’t speak Italian, so I can’t say for sure.
But, it raises a question. Does the dog speak Italian? Do all dogs in Italy speak Italian? Do all dogs in France speak French? Do all German dogs speak German? And dogs in The United States, since we are a melting pot of languages, what if I only speak English and I am scolding a dog that only speaks Spanish?
