Political Animals Learning a Second Language

We have a new Scot Terrier puppy and two cats. They suffer each other and have frequent run-ins, often involving lots of hissing and hopping and barking.
Of course, the puppy just wants to play, and he sincerely makes an attempt to communicate and invite the kitties to play tug or other exciting puppy games, to the degree that he actually has a different bark with the cats - it's kind of yelpy and high pitched. Like he's trying to talk in their meowy feline tongue but just can't get the phrasing right.
Is still likely more comprehensible to its audience, though, than the futile attempt to speak a second language by a certain Party Leader who wishes to be PM.
