True story:

When I was a kid we had a Siberian Husky named Shoshlik. Wanna know how we got her? I'll tell you.

My parents had friends who had rented a stud to mate with their purebred husky, but time was running out, and apparently the chemistry wasn't there, so to speak. My parents were over for dinner, and their friends were bemoaning their problem, when my dad said, "Maybe I can get them to mate."

His friend said, "If you can get them to mate, I'll give you one of the puppies for free."

My dad sat down at the piano, and played an aria from Wagner's Tristan and Isolde. Maybe eight bars in, they heard howling from the backyard, and sure enough, the deed was being done. Poof! We got a puppy!

Swear to god, true story.

Here's a video of some other guy who is not my dad with a really cute husky.
