Do you have a pet? And how does your pet react to your playing?
When I was a student, I was a little surprised the first time my teacher's dog, Barney, sat in for a lesson. About halfway through, the big dog opened his lungs and started howling along as I played. Wailing, really. It was a little distracting, but also amusing! I probably would not want a howler every time I practiced, though.
Please choose the closest reaction from the selections below, then tell us all about it. If you have more than one pet, pick the most interesting reaction. What kind of pet(s) do you have? What is the strangest reaction you've had from a pet? Is your pet content to listen to you practice, or do you have to practice in another room or out of earshot?
