I didn’t grow up with pets, so I didn’t know that this (“this” being animals LOVING music) was a thing until I saw it – but it is! This dog, named Hamlet The Tripod, loves this song by Vampire Weekend.
Like I said, I didn’t grow up with a pet, so who knows if what I’m about to say is real. But I just feel like if a dog likes a song and sings (howls) to it, then I should like it too. Dogs have the best sense of joojoo (that’s what I call energy, you guys)! They can smell things and hear things and sense things that humans can’t. So if this dog gets down with this song, and if this song moves this dog, then I’d be a damn fool to think it wouldn’t move me either.
I trust Hamlet.
What else do you think he likes?
**That was going to be the end of the post, but I did some more research on this. It turns out that animals really do have a sense of music. What they “like” depends on a songs frequency and pitch and tone, much like humans. So there, you guys – now you have a real reason to believe in Hamlet.
