Update from earlier Sept. 7 Animal Tracks, post: We were skeptical when we heard that Internet sensation Mishka the ‘talking’ husky and her owners, Matt and Alina Gardea, were going to appear on TODAY. An Internet video is one thing, but talking on demand is another. We were wrong -- really wrong. Mishka howled, "I love you" for Ann Curry when she appeared in studio today. And once she started, she wouldn't stop.
Mishka, the 8-year-old talking pup from New Jersey, is captivating people all over the world. In a viral video that's gotten more than 55 million hits on YouTube, she tells her owners, "I love you." Now, she's an Internet sensation.
“I think she is actually feeling that kind of emotion when she says that to us,” Mishka’s owner Matt Gardea told NBC News. “People find that real sweet.”
Matt and his wife Alina have posted more than 400 videos of their dog online.
