Next week at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Professor Timothy Pennings will give a presentation in which he hopes to prove that dogs -- or at the very least his dog, Elvis -- know calculus.

If dogs can do math, then what's to say that they can't ride a skateboard, speak English or... play the piano?

According to Life's Little Mysteries, a French woman has taught her two golden retrievers the art of music-making. The dogs paw the keys of an oversized keyboard in response to musical notes played by their owner, who accompanies them on an ocarina -- a flute-like instrument.

In this video, watch the trio play a short musical number aptly entitled 'La Valse des Puces,' or 'The Waltz of the Fleas'.
