Subject: RE: Animals' response to music
Sophocleese your bagpipe story reminds me of an incident that happened to a friend of mine who also plays the bagpipes. A few years back my friend Pat was playing in Central Park NY when a big german shepherd dog appeared near by, no owner in sight. At the time there were few people around so it was basically my friend and this big dog. The dog started circling slowly around Pat which made him very frightened fearing he was going to be attacked at any moment. The only thing that kept Pat calm was to continue playing his bagpipes. After a few minutes the dog stopped circling, sat down directly in front of Pat and began to howl along with the music.

Wonderful thread Marion, very happy you pulled it down from the attic
