Move over cat pianists! Cavoodle virtuoso’s chopsticks stuns the internet, but is his Bach worse than his bite?

The excitement of the Sydney International Piano Competition finals has got everyone living and breathing piano – including three-year-old cavoodle Poppy. “I was playing one day and she came up and sat next to me and she started copying me,” her Melbourne owner Jesse Philpot told Daily Mail Australia, “But she does take a bit of encouragement to start playing.” Poppy, who began playing piano as a puppy, can also do a number of other tricks including playing dead and speaking on command. We’ll have to watch out for her at SIPCA 2020.
