A Dog Joins In On The Fun When A Girl Starts Playing Her Flute

Posted on Jun 15 2017 - 5:33pm by Susan Bewley

Let’s set the scene. One of your children is practicing a song on an instrument that they’re learning how to play. We’ve all done it. We’ve all played that same song over, and over, and over again. We keep practicing until we get it right, and it’s perfect to us.

Oh the sweet joys of remembering how to play, “Little Brown Jug” on the piano. I remember it so well, however, my family remembers it even more than I do. From the clicking of the keys, pressing the wrong notes, and getting the rhythm wrong…my family remembers well.

This dog seems to remember well, too and he has totally had enough. Every time this girl starts practicing her song on the flute, he starts howling and growling. It’s definitely hilarious because, you know – enough is totally enough. He has suffered enough and wants her to stop.

Of course, laughter ensues. The girl can’t stop laughing, and neither can her sister that is recording everything.

This champ of a dog just lies there, while barely moving a muscle. He keeps putting her in her place when she tries to play her flute. He gives her the warning sounds. She laughs. She tries to play her flute again.  And again. And again.

At this point, we don’t blame him at all. We would be howling with him. Just watch the video below and tell us how you would feel.

Hopefully, the girl has moved on to newer songs so the poor dog can get some peace and quiet of the listening to her fail to play the song properly. Hopefully, she won’t drive him crazy and play it more than a few times around. She already knows what her punishment is going to be if she does it more than the bare minimum amount!

What hilarious things does your dog do to show off their personality or human based frustration of not being able to do it right the first time? Tell us about it in the comments below!

    This reminds me of my sister trying to play the clarinet. My neighbors dogs next door did the same thing when my sister started playing.

    I don’t have a dog, but I do hope to have one some day. This is so darn cute!!! I did try to play the flute once, as an adult I bought one, but didn’t have money for lessons, it isn’t that easy to learn. I hope she sticks with it, I love flute and duets, she will never regret learning (even if the dog does). I’d put him in the basement while she practices if need be – even though it is so funny!

    This video is so funny! Couldn’t stop laughing each time your daughter began playing Frere Jacques on her flute and your dog howled. We had a dog that did this when our town did the noon siren.

    I loved this video. I felt sorry for the poor dog, I know how he felt, my brother was learning to play the trumpet one school year. It didn’t last and I think he ended up trying a different instrument.

    After listening to the both of them they sure make a cute couple. I wish I could play the flute that good

    This is too funny! I had to play the same songs over and over to practice as a kid. Now, I feel like the dog listening to my daughter do the same thing! lol

    Aww – that’s adorable! A friend had a guide dog that would howl along to a Peruvian CD I had – he loved the pan flute!

    This reminds me of whenever my niece used to practice her violin..both young dogs would howl right until she finished…Oh lord!

    My cat walks on the top of the piano when my granddaughter plays and likes to just stare.

    I can’t get enough of the funny cat and dog memes and videos on the internet these days. I only wish I had video of our Muffie (she went to the Rainbow Bridge back in 2003 – just short of her 16th birthday). Anyway, my husband has an accordion. Luckily for everyone, he hasn’t taken it out in years and years, but he did a few times when we still had Muffie. All he had to do was hit a single note and she’d start howling. She never howled at anything else, except when one of the kids was having a temper tantrum and crying (seldom happened, but did on rare occasion). I think it was enough for my husband to pack the darned accordion away for good. Boy, I really wish I could thank Muffie for that!

    Having a pet is more than that, it’s a friend, companion 🙂
