They've learned to ride the subway. Soon they'll learn to open doors and then we're really screwed. Those raptor survival plans will come in handy after all.

I don't know. The dogs would type with a Russian accent?

The correct answer is that you won't, because on the internet nobody knows you're a dog.

Yeah, but steven is correct to point out that one may still know whether someone is a Russian.

When he brings his people into their new home, however, neither he nor his people have the foresight to realize that humanity is too blinded by its egotism ever to see its dogs as anything but pets. As such, he has doomed them all to the horrible fate of never being allowed to be anything but servants to the dogs' owners, since the humans are not aware of the aliens' intellectual superiority.
But the dog-aliens should be able to communicate their intelligence. Talk about a plot hole.
