How does my dog relate to pianos? Well, first of all, he was a musical dog. When we would sing, he would run under the piano and join in. Most of the time I was louder. Sometimes I would sing a soft song by Schubert, and he would tone down his howl to match. Very sensitive! I think he was his loudest and most joyful when Melissa, my daughter, would play double-stops on her violin. That really hit a nerve with Freddy.
Then, he seemed to want to make the piano his own. He did that the way male dogs do, and it was a constant cause of irritation for us! I guess those solid, black Yamaha grand piano legs were too much to resist!
I could write a lot more words about Freddy, but I will save them for myself and my family who knew him best. After a long, eventful life, there is a lot of reminiscing to do, lots of fun memories to share. We have no plans to replace him. He was one-of-a-kind after all! And life will be different for us without a pet, but we look forward to the challenge!
