NO thumbs necessary.
My human loves her Droid phone and says it can do tons of cool things - but speaking Pug probably isn't one of them. She liked the idea of me not depending on her thumbs though, so she let me try it out.
Here's how it went:
I said: Hello my name is Puglet.
Droid wrote: Hello my name is eclipse.
Ok, the thing can't even get my name right. Not a good sign.
Me: I like to eat poop. And rocks.
Droid: I like to eat boots and tacos.
Uh, boots and tacos? Hellllo! Who likes to eat boots? And what the heck is a taco?
Me: I love bacon.
Droid: I love sex.
Dumb Droid. Sex? I've never haaad sex - who knows if I even like it. I said baaaaacon!
Me: I can swallow a whole entire hot dog without chewing.
Droid: I can follow a whole entire hot dog without feeling.
Uhm, if I had to follow a hot dog I would totally be feeling. Feeling hungry!
So... it looks like I do need my human's thumbs after all. Or maybe she needs to get over her Steve Jobs issue and get one of those iPhone things instead. Because of everything I said, her dumb Droid only got one sentence 100% right:
Droid: I can sing better than Britney Spears.
