It’s time for Sunday’s Walk on the Lighter Side.

Are you looking for new ways to provide your dog with cultural entertainment? Me neither — my dog seems perfectly content with his plastic fire hydrant and inflatable mailman’s leg — but that’s why we have Manhattan performance artists:

Sydney Opera House will be reaching out to an entirely new audience demographic next month when it stages a musical event aimed at canine listeners.

The performance, which will take place on the northern boardwalk outside the venue, is the work of New York wife and husband team Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed.

The music stems from works that Anderson has been writing over the last 11 years for her rat terrier named Lollabelle. Most of the pitches will be too high for the dogs’ owners to hear, but they will be able to monitor the sounds on meters and, as Anderson points out, they will also be able to see their dog’s ears twitching.

Methinks those aren’t Psilocybin-free mushrooms on Ms. Anderson’s pizza.

Using Anderson and Reed as inspiration, I’m going to write the first ever blog post for dogs. Here goes:








Trust me, it was good. You should have seen your dog’s ears twitching.
