Who knew anyone could be a dog whisperer?

According to a new study, believe it or not, you speak the canine language!  Or, at least, you'll be able to understand your dog.  Researchers in Hungary found that people have a remarkable ability to figure out what their dog's different growls mean. For the study, people listened to audio recordings of dogs growling and barking while they played, guarded their food, or faced a stranger who they thought was threatening.

And people correctly identified what the dog was growling about 63% of the time,. which is higher than the level of random chance.

Don't know what this means, but the researchers also found that women were better at speaking dog than men. It probably means us men weren't paying attention... again.
