NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The internet has a new breakout star: Buddy Mercury, a beagle-basset hound mix from Long Island who apparently has a knack for tickling the ivories.

That's right. In several videos posted online, Buddy stands on his hind legs next to a piano, taps the keys with two front paws, tilts his head back and howls.

The pooches parents, Laurie and Glen of Ronkonkoma, say they've never taught Buddy how to play the piano.
