Video goodness: Piano-playing dog sings -- or howls, to be precise -- the blues

OK, so Tucker the schnauzer-poodle mix doesn't have the musical chops of a real piano virtuoso like, say, Nora the Piano Cat. His performance in the above video is all about his contagious enthusiasm, and we'd be the first to sing along if only we were able to howl like he does.

Unsolicited advice for some animal-loving booking agent out there: Hire Tucker, Nora, Beamin the piano-playing beagle and Elissa the piano-playing Flemish giant rabbit to perform in some sort of dueling-pianos show. Get Maru the cat on tambourine and we bet you'll have a hit on your hands!

Tucker "plays the piano and sings along at least 3 or 4 times every day," his owner writes on YouTube. "In spite of all of his practicing, he really isn't getting any better at it."
