Koira is a service dog, and when she’s not helping her owner, she’s using every chance she can get to play the windchimes.
Koira’s owner, 27-year-old Shonae Caitlin Ward, initially got the windchimes for her New South Wales home, but it quickly became apparent that Koira would be taking them over. The dog just can’t get enough of them!
Shonae adopted Koira when the dog was just 9 weeks old. Since then, Koira has been trained as a psychiatric assistance dog to help Shonae manage anxiety.
When Koira, which means “dog” in Finnish, was around two years old, Shonae picked up some wind chimes for herself from a thrift store. She wanted to add character to her sunroom and found a nice place for the chimes on the windowsill.

However, it wasn’t long before she discovered her border collie/kelpie’s love for the sound and started playing the windchimes for her.
After that, Koira began to pick up on how they worked and decided to give the chimes a try for herself.
Now, she loves playing the windchimes and makes music with them every chance she gets.
Animals are so precious!
