My next dog grew up with the drums from day one and she always liked the noise, especially the bass drum. She's the one that went with me to NAMM, a Steve Gadd clinic, and a "Bermuda" Schwartz clinic. I can't say if it was their ages when they were exposed to my drumming or if it was just their natural dispositions.
