Couch, With a Labrador

My science fiction short story Couch, With a Labrador is finally out over at Sci Phi Journal. It explores the companion-animal, agricultural and ethical implications that might come into play, should we ever devise a way to talk to the animals and hear them in return.

Is it possible to use a creature to your own ends once the language barrier is broken?

The story is part of the magazine subscription line though, so you would have to chip in a couple of bucks to read it. My animal welfare peeps in particular might find it a thought-provoking story.
