Good ideas at the time.

This would only work with dogs that are a little talkative
You'd get a collar and a remote control to program it
with. Whenever the dog made his "I'm hungry" sound,
you'd push the "I'm hungry" button. It would register the
sound from several seconds back and upon your
have that sound trigger an appropriate voice
actor's characterization of your dog next time Fido
makes that sound. This would play through a little
speaker on the collar.
Really goofy voice for labs, hard Germanic sounding
authoritarian for German shephards or dobermans,
Hispanic accent for Chihuahuas unless that's politically
incorrect. It would come with lots of voices to choose
My gut tells me that this would probably serve to
highlight one of the things we like about dogs though,
which is the fact that they don't talk.
It could have a mute button.

||This is bakeable and could be big. Vewy big. Big as a big-
headed man's head-sized burrito. Biscuit +
||Cool! But there would have to be several different takes for
each phrase, because hearing the same exact thing over and
over again would get really grating over time. (imagines high
pitched Hispanic voice saying "I'm hungry" repeatedly)
||edit: I just realized that this exists. I've definitely seen it
before almost exactly the way you described.
||edit again: I was wrong. There are two seperate products
that, if combined, would become what is described here.
