Nothing brings a smile to my face on a dreary Monday morning better than browsing funny talking dog videos on YouTube. Sure, I know that dogs can’t actually speak “human,” but some dogs imitate their people so well it almost sounds like they’re really speaking.
Then there are the “animal dubbing” videos. Oh, these crack me up! Animal dubbing is, as Andrew Grantham explains, “When you sit down and really pay attention, especially with the sound off, to the expressions of an animal in a video, it’s almost like a story emerges without even trying. If not, it’s the wrong video.”
If you love funny talking dog videos on YouTube as much as I do, you’re in for a treat. I’ve rounded up a few of the most hilarious (and realistic!) clips . Check them out, then share your favorites in the comments! We could all use a good laugh!
