We had to laugh at a quintet rehearsal this weekend when the oboist's dog
settled himself on the couch (on the French hornist's gig bag) with his head
hanging off the couch literally six inches from the French horn bell. We all
said, "That dog is going to move pretty darn fast..." So the hornist played
some very soft notes to move the little guy without injuring him... He didn't
twitch, so the hornist continued to warm up with increasing volume. We
played a full two hour rehearsal and the dog never budged. Our only
conclusion was that he was either deaf, brain damaged, or relieved to get a
break from the oboe.
