Buddy Mercury the piano-playing dog strikes a chord

Buddy Mercury, the piano-playing Bagel (beagle/basset hound mix) plays the piano and sings a song at his Ronkonkoma, New York, home. 

RONKONKOMA, Ny. (WDRB) -- Freddie Mercury died in 1991, but his spirit lives on in a Basset Hound/Beagle mix in New York. 

Meet Buddy Mercury, the singing "Bagel." 

"He does Beaglan Rhapsody," owner Glenn Wolfe said. 

"And Some Buddy to Love," added Laurie Wolfe. 

The Wolfe family adopted Buddy in 2016. To celebrate the anniversary of the dog's arrival in their home, the Wolfes shared videos of Buddy playing piano and howling along to social media. 

To say the multi-talented Bagel went viral would be an understatement. 

"There's actually people making videos of their beagle listening to the record and singing along," Greg Wolfe said. 

And there's Buddy Mercury merchandise: bags, mugs, hats and ringtones. The Wolfes hope money raised from the sales can be put toward a good cause. 

"We want to help more animals be rescued and we only have so much space in our home," Laurie Wolfe said.
