Before starting to write this blog post, I quickly googled for “a dog on the piano” and the search engine provides – among many others – 2.28 million links to videos with dogs playing, walking on or singing along with the piano. The first page of results even features a link to a site with a tutorial on how teaching your dog to play the piano within one day. Somewhat a question of conditioning.
Instead of a funny video or an insightful tutorial, I will share one picture this week featuring one dog on the piano. The photo was taken in a French train station. Those are nowadays equipped with at least one piano inviting you to play a little bit while waiting for your train. There was one young man sitting at the piano while his dog was observing if he hit the right keys. I liked the setting very much and am always happy when I come across those moments that are at the same time somehow ordinary and extraordinary.
What a nice idea. I like that the dog was looking at you. It’s used to fame.
Gabriela, thank you very much for your comment. Absolutely, the dog spotted the camera and his chance to get a nice picture of himself. Should have taken his email address to send the pic to him…
