Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesWe are confused with this here video. What is this singing pooch's name anyway? Nagila Cooper? Nagi LaCooper? Sounds very exotic, like French or maybe Caribbean, so we will say that this talented little doggie's name is actually just Cooper.

Cooper is a very musical dog, and in this video he shows off his singing skills by finishing his owner's song. The pooch is taken by surprise when his human's singing comes to a halt, but then recovers and remembers that it his turn to finish the song! One cute snort later and we get to hear what the folk song would sound like when sung by a tiny Husky-mix doggy with a penchant for the dramatic!

We already know that dogs are amazing creatures, giving us unconditional love and support, but it's always a bonus when they know how to sing! This “Finish the lyric" game is as sweet as can be, and it sounds like Cooper sang Havah Nagilah perfectly.

"Hava Nagila" (Hebrew, "Let us rejoice") is an Israeli folk song traditionally sung at Jewish celebrations. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and bar/bat mitzvah celebrations. The melody is based on a Hassidic Nigun and it was composed in 1915 in Ottoman Palestine, when Hebrew was being revived as a spoken language for the first time in almost 2,000 years (since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE).
