Canine Crooner Cranks Out The Tunes

Posted June 3, 2001 1:23 a.m. EDT

— While most of what you hear from dogs is not particularly melodic, some dogs actually can carry a tune -- sort of anyway.

Jill Fetters of Raleigh and her dog, Buddy, are singing partners. The two competed in a singing pet contest sponsored by Advantage Flea control.

Some dogs showed off their dance moves. One person was impressed enough to adopt a dog from theWake County SPCA. The contest helps raise money for Triangle animal shelters.

Buddy was a national finalist last year; this year's winner will be announced in September.
