Can you tell that this dog is barking? How can that be, when you can't actually hear the sound of the bark?

Well, the dog's mouth is wide open. There are also lines coming from the mouth, like those often used to indicate movement in a two-dimensional picture. Here, they represent the movement of sound waves.

The dog in our illustration could be a dog of almost any breed.

He might be a cartoon mutt living on a city street, an Australian shepherd herding sheep, or a loyal German shepherd protecting its family.

It all depends on how you color him.
