Slave Shipby Frederik Pohl
First they cracked the codes. The big electronic calculators found it simple to decipher the small but racy animal vocabularies. Then humanity achieved the age-old dream: We could respond when our dogs struggled to tell us something; we could tell that foolish sheep that if he didn't behave he'd be mutton; and, being human, we could create the wildest, craziest secret weapon for the war that's humanity's heritage, but not that of the new, now-articulate minorities!
