Today, we want to give a special shout-out to Buddy, the rescue beagle who has become a friendly reminder that you can do anything you set your mind to — to an extent at least. According to his humans, this lil’ guy practices the piano three times a day and is now confident enough to share his compositions with the world.

We couldn’t identify Buddy’s piano tutor and/or vocal coach, but with skills like that, we’d hardly be surprised if he just doesn't need one.

Well done, Buddy. We look forward to your storied career!

He plays with such feeling: his soulful voice--and wagging tail--say it all!

That piece by John Cage never sounded better, especially since it is the first time that it has been played by a dog, as per the composer's instructions.

Must be an aria from a Berg opera. Never hear all 12 tones sung at the same time. Quite a bit of talent there.

I miss that musical "baying" of my late rescue Beagle, Pierre Z Pon! My Dachshunds would just not be able to reach the piano keys but my Beagle did leave his mark on the head of my soprano recorder. His signature will remain there forever!! Sing on dear Buddy!! Who knows, you may sing one day at the "MUTTropolitan Opera!" Ouch!

I think Buddy's music needs some wah-wah tubes as accompaniment.
