    If someone doesn’t kill him (or his trumpet) first!

    When I was a kid I figured out that my dog couldn’t hear recorded music because she HOWLED when someone in my home played the piano but never reacted when I would put an LP of piano music on. Also, my present cat does not react when she’s in front of a mirror..

    Mine neither… but others have. My dogs — though — are hysterical with mirrors.

    My son suddenly took a great interest in practicing the guitar in his mid-teens. I couldn’t figure out what on earth drove this sudden enthusiasm for hours a day, until I observed that it bugged the heck out of his little sister.

    When I was a kid I had a violin in school. I would practice in my room with the dog locked in with me. She would howl and my parents thought it was cruel and unusual punishment.
    My dog now will bark and sing along when I play the piano. Sometimes he’s pretty close to being on key

    And then there was the boy that got a drum and drove everyone nuts —
    Until someone asked him “Ever wonder what’s inside that drum?”

    My dog pays absolutely NO ATTENTION to that “other” doggie in the mirror looking back at her. Maybe she knows she’s looking at herself so there’s no reason to get excited? Oh, well. Thank goodness she’s so much more fun when it comes to OTHER things in life though!!!!! ;-)

    It’s one thing for a dog to howl, but it’s another thing for a mom to howl.

    Had a dog that “sang” to my brother’s trumpet practice. Owooooo! Since she didn’t leave for another room or outside, one had to guess she was just joining in.

    One of our cats used to jump up on the organ bench when my daughter played it (it was a cheap little organ that her uncle no longer wanted). Then when organ music played on the radio, he would again jump up on the bench.
    He was an impish redhead; his long-suffering silver tabby housemate had some musical interests, too. We’d sing “Three Blind Mice” to her, but leave off the last note. We’d sing “. . . as threee- bliiind— _______,” and she’d fill in nicely, on key.

    Many years ago I was singing a solo in church. It was Florida, no A/C then (we cooled ourselves with funeral fans), and only a screen door was keeping the bugs out. There came up a commotion, and my black Gordon setter, that had followed me to church and was outside, started howling to accompany my singing. The ushers shooed him away.
