The owner of an Australian cattle dog in northern Virginia taught the clever boy to answer yes and no questions using a touchscreen device.
Having previously used pieces of paper with the words “yes” and “no” on them to indicate his answers to questions posed by his owner, Boba the blue heeler worked his way up to using a touchscreen to answer human queries.
Boba’s owner runs a number of social media accounts dedicated to his comprehension skills.
As for what’s on his mind? Well, in this video posted to Twitter on October 11, when asked by his owner if he wants to show what his “temporary voice,” as his owner puts it, sounds like, he responds by tapping “no.”
Next question: does he want a treat? You bet he does. Credit: bobablueheeler via Storyful
