Meet the Singing Chihuahua

Does your co-pilot croon?
By Lisa Wogan, January 2009, Updated June 2021

“Upon hearing just about any instrument, Ted immediately begins to ‘sing,’” Saeran St. Christopher tells us about the 11-year-old pup she adopted from Chihuahua rescue. “His voice, a bit wolf-howl mixed with sand and gravel, never fails to make people laugh. He cracks me up every time, and I have to send him away while I practice.” She is a flutist with The Cleveland Orchestra.

When Saeran entered Ted in Bark’s Dog Is My Co-Pilot contest, we were intrigued by the promise of song. We wanted to know—or even hear—more. Saeran and Ted obliged, recording what may be the first-ever exclusive-for-Bark singing dog video. Does this feel like the start of something to you?
