Wonderful creatures that they are, dogs can often surprise their owners years into a relationship by displaying talents that they had previously kept hidden under wraps.

Normally it’s a trick or two or the ability to respond to specific commands, but not many owners expect their dogs to showcase a sweet singing voice, especially not when their song of choice is the religious anthem Ave Maria.

Gerry and Caroline Dillon from Dundalk discovered that they had something of a Pavarotti puppy on their hands while they were watching The Hangover 3 the other night, when their Labrador Holly spontaneously joined in during the scene where Alan sings the hymn at his Dad’s funeral.

Gerry claims that she has never heard Holly howl like it before or since but we imagine that this is just one example of Holly’s talents; after all if she can sing Ave Maria like that, imagine the job she’d do on more fitting material from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Three Dog Night or The Pet Shop Boys?

We’ll get our coats.
