Fun Stuff – The “Speaking” Dog

This is a non-political reblogging! Just for fun! — YUR

What Ingrid Watches

This is not only fun but also adorable and genius! A speech pathologist called Christina Hunger has taught her dog Stella how to “speak”, using a soundboard. Sounds incredible? Have a look at the clip (source: CNN).

Not only does the dog know 29 distinct words, but she is also capable of combining 3 -4 words into “sentences”. That is an incredible feat and it’s more than proof that dogs are intelligent! Hunger’s work doesn’t stop here, by the way, because she is eager to know how many more words the dog is capable of learning and if Stella can make longer sentences!

To be continued!

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”   —   Buddha

(Let’s hear it for the jolly, chubby, bald dude!  No offense to any of my Buddhist readers.  This guy looks like he’s all about love.  Nothing vengeful about him.  Always love others, but also don’t forget to love yourself.  Both today’s Cryptoquote and Jumble reference love and affection.  Two of life’s best attributes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DEEP AFFECTION

(A marvelous stinky pun.  And, another long answer that wasn’t a gimme!  Once again, I had to break down the answer letter layout into consonants and vowels in order to get the answer.  This is a rarity for me.  Usually, I just look at clue/question and I’m good to go.  Either the guys are making these harder, or I’m just slipping.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  I didn’t struggle to get any of them.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “phedt” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive thirteen letter jumble.  It hid the final answer from me, very well.  Even with breaking down the answer letter layout it took me a little work.  FOND was too obvious, but I thought the first word might be NICE.  No go.  Finally, I saw DEEP and the pun hit me!

The cartoon really should’ve been a huge clue to me as it did have a lot of depthNo complaints about a clue word being a form of one of the answer words!  I loved the boat on the surface of the water, the fish below it, and the lobsters on the seabed.  And, the bonus was the classic sunken sailboat off in the distance.  Nice touch.  I wonder if the captain went down with the ship???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
