    Need help with the beginning of a video.

    Hi I saw this video earlier

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sH93XJz_4Ns

    The English lyrics are included in the description, but I thought I would try to listen to it and see if I could understand what he's saying. I managed to get some of it correct.

    But the beginning, at 0:12 to 0:16
    I could hear he said something like
    "Это история..." and I can't make out the rest.

    Can anyone tell me what he says?
    Thanks

    Это история про одного пса.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    Thanks so much, my vocabulary isn't perfect yet, so I didn't know "Пса' was a word used for "dog"

    пёс is one of the few kooky words that loses a vowel when endings are added.
    п(ё)са - genitive singular

    Usually it's a 'е' or 'о' that gets dropped.
    In the case of окно́, when the final o is dropped, an o is added: о́кон
