This is my dog Charlie:
When she’s not destroying stuffed toys, she’s generally being pretty cute and funny, like this:
Being a cattle dog (mix), she’s very involved in all household activities, including practicing. When she was younger, she pestered me so much while I was practicing that I developed a routine with her. Now, once I finish my warmups she gets a peanut. She takes it away and leaves me alone after that.
But that means that she’s VERY attentive during warmups. She knows my usual final exercise and sometimes starts whining during it. While she’s waiting, on occasion she even sings along:
It sounds to me like she tries to match pitch, but my pro musician/proud momma perspective could be slanted…
