Brian in Family Guy is an anthropomorphic dog, meaning he is able to speak. Until the episode "Life of Brian", I assumed that he was the only animal who could speak consistently (other animals speak on one off occasions for comedy).
Then Vinny came along and changed everything.
So that got me thinking, "How many dogs can talk?" and "If Vinny died before Brian came back from the dead would there be another dog who could replace Vinny, who would still be able to talk?"
So that's my question.
Has Seth MacFarlane ever stated if there are any other dogs/animals that can talk consistently?
