Dogs Prefer Reggae!

Gosh, I wish I had known this while my fantastic wee Westie was still alive. When we had to go out and leave him in the house himself I used to put some ambient stuff on , thinking this would calm him. Little did I know he'd be pining for some King Tubby.

I had a little mongrel in my teens who liked to howl along to saxophone.

Our little Cairn used to go mad whenever he heard the car starting at the beginning of Love Is The Drug
Same thing with the car door shutting and the footsteps in Club Tropicana. He liked cars. He was a hedonist.

That is probably one of the best statements I have ever heard.

Animal music!

I play in a reggae band. I think it evokes calmness and hash culture without drugs sometimes, however, Kingston, Jamaica is one of the most violent places on earth. I thought hash was supposed to be calming. Drug gangs I guess.

Various types though:

1) Reggae
2) Ska
3) Dub

I would think dub is good for chilled out experiences. Even in canines!

Did he stick his head out the window and put his tongue out?

I've heard that tomatoes in an experiment in a commercial greenhouse grew better when Mozart or someone similar was played. There are some things in this world that we don't understand. Don't underestimate the boundaries of the sentient.
