“Hey, mom, can we please listen to some music?”
As Tank the bully is playing with his chew toy, he realizes how quiet the house is and seemingly asks his owner to turn on some music. Tank is so happy when he realizes she hears him and is listening to him!
Wait, just a minute!
Tank’s owner turns on Cardi B, to which Tank seemingly says “this is not what I said to turn on.”
Apparently, Tank’s owner finds his response comical and does nothing to immediately rectify the situation. Tank isn’t amused and begs the question “what are we listening to?”.

So much soul in one little bully dog!
As Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” plays, Tank can’t help but howl along!
According to his owner, this is the only song he will sing along to! As the song plays on, Tank really gets into it. It’s as if he’s lost in memories, remembering getting his heartbroken. You can feel the emotion radiating from him as he sings with inflection and even hits many of the notes!
Why are they called bully dogs?
Watching this video, you don’t get the impression that Tank is a bully dog. He doesn’t appear aggressive or cruel. So, why the term “bully dog?”
Historically, these dogs were born in Greece and bred to protect livestock and property. Due to their large bones, muscle tone, long ears, and short muzzles, these dogs were often used in blood sports such as bull-baiting. This is where the term “bully” came from.
Today, these poor dogs are often used in illegal dog-fighting rings. Sadly, bully dogs are status symbols for too many people to signify their toughness, aggression, and intimidation. This has made the term “bully dog” persist, along with the reputation.
Bully dogs can make great family dogs.
As you can see by watching this video of Tank howling along to his favorite country song, bully dogs should not categorically be feared. Their loving, protective nature and sheer intelligence combine to make bully dogs some of the most loving and loyal dogs out there.
How did I do?
After Tank finishing howling along, he looks over at his owner to make sure he has her approval, which she gladly gives! Tank and his owner have a marvelous bond over their love for country music. “Tennessee Whiskey” never sounded as good as it does with Tank’s accompanying howl.
