If your talking pets, if an owner is paying attention they know if the pet is happy.

I talk to my dog all the time, and she talks back by body language and noises. People have been doing this with domesticated animals for 3000+ years.

I wonder what wacky invention this guy has?

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I is not totally impossible for inter species communication, someone taught dolphins to say the word ball, so they would say ball to people when they wanted the ball to play with and then ask the other dolphins to pass it by saying ball. You know I should have just gone with apes and chimps that know sign language.

Bingo...almost every living creature communicates via body language and noises, other than us.

This is wrong, the part where humans don't use body language and noises.  Humans use body language all the time, not counting sign language.  We also use noises as well, not counting the twenty six language sounds to speak with.

I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.

Most of my communication with my wife involves me going, "Uhhhhh-huhhhhhhh", meaning "Yes Dear, whatever you want." Sometimes it even involves eye contact!!!
