Japanese toymaker claims to have developed a gadget that translates dog barks into human language. It plans to begin selling the product to be known as Bowlingual in US pet stores, gift shops and retail outlets later this year. Tokyo-based Takara Co says about 300,000 of the dog translator devices have been sold since its launch in Japan late last year. It is forecasting far bigger sales once an English-language version comes to America in August.
