Classical Pianist Plays To Soothe Blind, Ailing Elephants At Sanctuary

It is claimed that elephants never forget. And we hope that's true especially for these elephants at the Thailand sanctuary, Elephant World, home to older elephants. 

Paul Barton, a classical pianist, has been sharing his talents with a rather large audience these days. And when we say "large," we mean it literally. Barton has been spending most of his time playing his beautiful music for the gentle giants of the elephant sanctuary. 

He first heard about the elephants when his wife discovered the sanctuary online. Barton explains in a video, "We liked the sound of the place being a retirement center for old, injured and handicapped former logging and trekking elephants. So we paid them a visit. I wondered if these old rescue elephants might like to listen to some slow classical music."

Barton reached out to the staff at Elephant World to see if he can bring his piano and serenade the elephants. The staff said yes. 

The first time Barton began to play for the elephants, one blind elephant, was in the midst of eating breakfast and stopped the second he heard the music. Barton had played Beethoven.

Barton continues to explain in a video,  "[He] was often in pain, and I like to think maybe the soothing the music gave him some comfort in the darkness," Barton tells CBS News that this elephant was the first to take to his music.  The musician said this was the first elephant to really take to his music. The gentle giant later died of an infection, sadly. Barton was heartbroken to hear the news. 

Barton continues to play for these old gentle giant, hoping the music soothes their soul. Even if the an elephant is blind, they don't need to see to hear and feel the music Barton is playing just for them.

Ever wondered what your pet does when you're not around?

After receiving multiple complaints from neighbors about all the daily screaming and loud music, all happening while he was at work, the owner decided to do some detective work.

The owner, however, had a hunch of what it could be happening since his dog loves to sing whenever he plays piano. He set up a 'nanny cam' and what he saw surprised him and the neighbors.

Turns out his pooch is quite the aspiring musician!

You Can Now Adopt a Dog Based On Your Share Love Of Music

Dogs love music. They even have their very own preferences of music. Just like we do. So why not connect people and dogs with the same taste in music? That's exactly what Spotify and an animal shelter in Germany did.   

They have teamed up to launch 'Adoptify,' featuring music for dogs. The Adoptify website makes it possible for prospective pet owners to have themselves matched to an adoptable animal based on their shared love of music. While one dog is said to love hip-hop, the other might prefers rock. After finding a dog with similar musical interests, one may watch a video about the dog, read more information about them and hopefully, provide a loving home for their new friend. Here are some of the music preferences of adorable dogs offered for adoption. Via: Trend Hunter
