Without a song in my heart. On my way to work today, I was fortunate enough to witness a fantastic dog moment. A fire engine was heading down Varick with its siren blaring, and this big husky-eque mutt of a dog was standing on the corner with his owner. You could hear the siren before you saw the fire engine, and this dog started "singing" along to the siren, echoing the whining noise almost verbatim. He had the same pitch and rhythm. He let out this long, plaintive, rhythmic howl that was perfectly in harmony with the siren. As the siren got closer, the dog got louder until the engine drove in front of the dog and the dog's howl became a very loud bark. It was the funniest thing; I couldn't stop laughing!
