One of my favorite things to watch are dogs singing along with music. They can be quite harmonious sometimes, and it’s funny to see the reactions of their mommies and daddies. Some dogs have even made it onto talent shows. One dog sang Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ on a talent show.
While not quite in that caliber, I did love this video of a Bull Terrier named Lilly doing her best rendition of a recent hit. Lilly’s mommy, YouTube user ‘Amba Rose’, is holding her up to her camera phone. Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is playing, and the pooch starts howling along with the song. She’s definitely heard this tune before since she knows when to pause. It’s so adorable.
Amba Rose says in the comments that she’s not laughing at what Lilly is doing because she’s afraid she might drop her – or the phone. In either case, we’re glad she focused on what she was doing when recording. I love seeing videos like this. It’s a great way for both the dog and the parent to enjoy the song – though perhaps later Amba Rose might want to listen to it on headphones to be able to enjoy the whole thing.
I think Lilly would be a great addition to any subsequent music videos that Sheeran makes, though it would help if MTV showed music videos with any regularity again. Sorry, I’m a child of the ’80s. I still miss those days. Check Lilly’s ‘singing’ out in the video below and decide for yourself if she should send a tape to Ed Sheeran.
