What type of pet (if any do you have) and does your pet like fiddle?  We had been pet free for 10 years and it was actually quite  nice. However, my husband thought I needed company so he presented me with the cutest, most  innocent looking beagle pup about 4 years ago, Pickles. It very soon became apparent he was not in the least bit innocent and he quickly outgrew cute. Now I am stuck with a surly beagle that hates fiddle music, and most days me. This has also dashed any dreams of a "bluegrass beagle." In addition he questions everything I do around the house. It's like living with a little dictator, or perpetual hormonal teenager.  I did however manage to get one photo of him actually smiling, not at me of course.
Not all was a lost cause however, as he did give me enough material to write an publish a book...Pickles Parables, Lessons Learned from a beagle....it's on the huge online store where most people shop.
So what about your pet?
PS anyone want to beagle sit??

Five cats. Two indoor. Three outdoor...feral cats we've taken to caring for. None have much interest in my fiddling.

Wife and I have had at least A dog and a couple of cats for the almost 30 years we've been together (two of each for much of that time). Recently had to say goodbye to the last cat, Amy Wong, just before Christmas. Our dog, Reggie, is a rescue that we got one day short of a year ago today! He's been DNA'd and is all of the terriers and a tiny bit of Rottweiler laugh. I was very opposed to getting a new dog in the winter after our last one (Jenny) was having grand Mal seizures in her 14th year, but my wife wore me down with endless links to dogs?????? available for adoption. He's the perfect size (17lbs) and has been a Godsend in these pandemic times. He seems to love music of all kinds as he can always be found nearby whether it's ukulele, fiddle or even full band bluegrass playing. The other pets also liked it, though the basenji (Jenny) complained occasionally. I don't blame her. She didn't like the key of A. 

Jenny protesting

Reggie growled and got up just now as I played that video!

ChickenMan, curious, a cat named Amy Wong?? Loved Jenny's protesting. Our daughter is very involved with an animal rescue so we have had quite an assortment of dogs come through our homestead from time to time.

Amy Wong is a character in the animated series Futurama. In the first (or second) episode, when they are introducing characters, Amy, who is Chinese and is from Mars (her parents might own it) says, "I've had cuteness reduction surgery here and here," as she points to her chin and dimples. Our cat was born at the shelter from a feral mom and was soooo cute, thus the name. We got her at 8 weeks and within a few days her sister moved in. My wife and her friend adopted from the same litter (it was friend's idea), and her friend wound up giving it up because she thought her dog was afraid of it. Long story, sweet cat.

The one on my lap was 30 years old. We lost her over the new years. The one on the floor is close to 20. Enjoying her 9th life.
