A dog has gone viral for howling-in to sing Ranu Mondal's song ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ with a man. The video that was shared by one Subir Khan shows the canine howling at the same pace as the man with the piano accordion singing ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’, a song by Ranu Mondal who became an overnight sensation last year after a man captured her singing Lata Mangeshkar’s 'Ek pyaar ka nagma hai' at Ranaghat railway station in Kolkata.

While the dog does appear to be singing along with the man, it is worth noting that dogs howl at loud noises as a way of communication or a sign of stress. As descendants of wolves, dogs may be expressing this instinctual behaviour when prompted by the sounds.
Some dog owners may have noticed their dog howling in response to a neighbor’s dog. This behavior can be compared to the basic “contagious” response most dogs have when they hear another dog barking: they begin to bark themselves, especially if they sense fear, danger or a threat.
A dog’s hearing ability depends on its age as well as its breed. Dogs hear a higher frequency of sounds than a person, which is why ultrasonic signals such as those used in training whistles can be heard by dogs.
