Cha-Cha Says "I Love You"

Today's implausible animal language claim comes from none other than veteran newsfixture Barbara Walters.  Apparently, she has claimed on The View that when she told her Havanese dog Cha-Cha that she loves her, the dog replied back, "I love you".

The best part is that the illustrious Ms. Wawa plans to bring a friend who witnessed the incident on the show to back her up.  I guess now I have to believe her, on account of she has an eyewitness, not to mention the keen powers of observation she's developed in forty years of celebrity interviews hard-hitting journalism.

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.

I've actually seen dogs that do that. It's not so much "I love you" as "Rye ruv ooh."

That made me laugh uncontrollably at work yesterday just as my boss was walking past. Thanks Viola!
