It is entirely wrong to think that animals don’t posses the gift of language. They do! Granted, it’s not a complex system of signs and symbols, that has grammar, morphology or syntax, like human language, but before humans evolved to become humans our language was also very simple and referred only to food, danger, and general survival.
Dog’s have the gift for this basic form of language. If you need proof, that dogs understand language you just have to watch this video. This dog was taught to use sign language! Yes, sign language. For animals, that is almost like a form of reading, it’s incredibly advanced!
Fortunately for this beautiful dog, he was adopted by a wonderful lady who suffers from the same problem. There is no doubt they will make each other’s lives better in every possible way!
