I was sitting at the computer the other day and I heard yapping like from a Mexican ratdog or Yorkie coming from the backyard where the coop is. I ran out to scare the beast away and there was no dog. I looked over at Rudy (who can't fail) and he yapped. Our rooster speaks dog! Now if we can teach him to do it on command and maybe learn to meow, moo and oink, etc. we'd have an act to take on the road!
