PART II

When I was a kid, there used to be one question in every quiz program. 
The dog in the picture - HMV records-whether is a male or female?  
We were puzzled and did not know to tell the gender as nothing was visible morphologically to identify,forgetting the very fact that's a male -just because it is His Masters Voice and not Her's.
Let us continue to share the interesting informations about ANIMALS & MUSIC.

Today’s science says  Classical Music Can Have Powerful Effects Even Before Birth. One recent study demonstrates that children exposed to classical music in the womb show a positive change in physical and mental development after birth,in humans.(READ MORE)

Claudia Miclaus mentioned : 
In Chicago, Lincoln Park, they decided to study this matter and see what effects may be produced by playing the violin to some animals there. The results were very interesting. Thus, panthers seemed to greatly enjoy peaceful tunes like "Home, Sweet Home", and the same did a lioness with her cubs and a jaguar: "The Lioness and her cubs were interested from the start, though when the violinist approached the cage the mother gave a hiss, and the cubs hid behind her. At the playing of a lively jig, the cubs stood up on their hind legs and peeped over at the player. When the musician retreated from the cage, the animals came to the front of it and did not move back when he gradually drew so near as almost to touch the great paws which were thrust through the bars. When playing 'Home, Sweet Home,' the entire family seemed very attentive, and were motionless except that the cubs turned their heads from side to side. Then another jig was played and the cubs pranced about."
"The Coyotes in a den, squatted in a semicircle, and sat silently while the music continued. When it ceased, they ran up and pawed at the player through the bars. He began afresh, and they again formed in a silent semicircle. This experiment was tried several times with the same results." 
Interesting, isn’t it?

MUSICAL BARKS
It is first time in the history and made exclusively for our beloved friend. Hundreds of dogs and their owners descended on the Sydney Opera house for a concert specifically for canines.Organisers said the event,the work of american musician and artist Laurie Anderson, was the first of its kind.It featured the cries of whales and high pitched electronic sounds inaudible to human ears,accompanied by a bass guitar and violin.For an hour or so Australia’s most recognisable building became a giant kennel.There were plenty of barks, howls and yawns along with the occasional snarl as the Sydney Opera house witnessed a piece of canine musical history.

 MUSIC FOR DOGS. 







No doubt, Music can have a positive influence on the spirit of these loyal creatures. 

Right sound at right time will not only rejuvenate you, but also your beloved pets!
