Adorable Video Of Dog Using Talk Buttons To Ask For Bone Cracks Viewers Up

"He's not just using the buttons," suggests a viewer. "He's building sentences."

User @avakuri28 is impressed with "the fact that this dog has the common sense to do a little research on the treat before forming an opinion. And so many people don't."

"My dog would just take both and run away," writes @lilyoharris.

"I'm so confused," summarizes @yellowlabmarine. "But so impressed."
