Since I practice each morning right beside his cage, he's had to listen to me several hours a day for most of his life (poor guy). The other day, as I was playing the last half of "The Two Grenadiers" - the part where it morphs into a version of the French National Anthem - I noticed the pig was watching me and quietly chirruping. Not in tune, or anything. But he more or less stopped when I stopped playing and started again when I started. Since then, I've been watching him during several other passages, but he only sings along to these 20 or so measures of this one song.
Gusdog hides under a chair when I practise. Not sure what to think of that!
Actually, the piece changes abruptly from g-minor to G-Major at this point. Maybe he's picking up on that change of mood?
